Sorting a Table Microsoft Office 2007

    Tables can not only organize data, but they can also sort your data alphabeti­cally as well. To sort a table, you need to specify a single column of data to sort. When Word sorts the data in this column, it automatically sorts every row in the table as well, as shown in Figure 6-21.
