Subject Alphabetizing when using a spread sheet as an index for parts storage.
Date Mon, 23 Sep 2013 19:15:05 GMT
In using  a spreadsheet , using two columns where the first column contains the part description
and the second column indicates where the part is to be found alphabetizaation was tried..

This feature hasn't been used in quite some time. When activated the alphabetizing is done
using the SECOND column.  This puts all the part descriptions in chaos but the placement in
alphabetical order.

To accomplish the alphabetization properly the parts list was cut and placed in the second
column behind the position the part is to be found. 

It works and then the columns are then changed into proper placement and all is well.

It's necessary to upgrade the spreadsheet because of constant additions and removals.  

What is the necessary procedure to get the alphabetization of the spreadsheet based on the
first column?

Thank you
