Automatically Sorting as You Enter Information in Excel

As you enter information into an Excel spreadsheet, you can have the program automatically sort the data for you. This can be a great time-saver if you need to regularly update and sort large amounts of data. Here's how to set it up:

  1. Open your Excel spreadsheet. Click on the cell where you want the sorting to start. For this example, we'll start in cell A1.
  2. Click on the Data tab at the top of the screen. Then click on the Sort button.
  3. In the Sort by drop-down menu, choose the column that you want to sort by. In this example, we'll sort by Last Name.
  4. Click on the Options button. In the Sort Options dialog box, choose how you want to sort the data. For this example, we'll choose to sort A to Z.
  5. Click on the OK button. Your data will now be sorted in alphabetical order by last name.

You can also use this method to sort by multiple columns. For example, if you wanted to sort by last name and then first name, you would follow these steps:

  1. Open your Excel spreadsheet. Click on the cell where you want the sorting to start. For this example, we'll start in cell A1.
  2. Click on the Data tab at the top of the screen. Then click on the Sort button.
  3. In the Sort by drop-down menu, choose the first column that you want to sort by. In this example, we'll sort by Last Name.

  4.         <ul> <br /> <li>Click on the Add Level button.</li> <br /> <ul> <br /> <li>In the Then by drop-down menu, choose the second column that you want to sort by. In this example, we'll choose First Name.</li> <br /> </ul>} <
