Easy Way to Move Tabs in Excel

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. I have a spreadsheet file that contains a bunch of worksheets. The problem is they are out of order. Is there some easy way to change the lineup of the tabs without going through the hassle of creating new tabs and then copying the contents?

A. There’s no need to create new tabs or copy anything. Here’s how to customize their order: Say you want to move the February tab to come after January, which, of course, is where it belongs. Just grab the February tab with the mouse and drag it to between January and March.
