More on Alphabetize
My apologies for a badly written question.
I have Excel Workbooks for each of 12 months (e.g. Jan. 2004 Daily
Figures). They are in a Folder in My Documents named '2003 Daily Figures',
in irregular order. I can Drag each but not Drop it where I wish it. Is
there a way to Alphabetize the 12 Excel entries within a My Documents
Sure. Rename them to 01-2004, 02-2004, etc.

What version Publisher? If you are using 2003-07 you could do this manually if
you are using the catalogue merge. After the merge, in step five, create a new
publication. Arrange the entries the way you are describing.
Mary Sauer MSF...Macro to Click on Alphabet Letter to go to Cell Where that Alphabet Letter Starts in Large Spreadsheet
I have a very large spreadsheet with text entries and would like to set
it up so that I could click on a letter, for example, "d" and I'd be
taken to the first cell with an entry beginning with "d". I also need
to be able to continue to add data to the spreadsheet.
I've read a lot of posts and the best solution seems to be setting up a
macro. My problem is that I've never been able to record a macro and my
attempts to try these in both Word and Excel have failed miserably.

I have a master data sheet, with columns of different information.
I'd like to pull information from 3 different columns
(Rank,LastName,Shift) into a separate column (I know how to do this).
What I would then like to have happen is, in another separate column,
have the information sorted alphabetically by last name. There are
duplicate last names, in which case I'd like them sorted in rank
order. Is this at all possible? Also, I can't use a VB Macro - it
needs to be in a formula or array format.

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Is there a way to alphabetize a list that is just typed in as text, with hard return at end of each phrase? Thee list is not in table or mail merge format.
this can be done in Word, but the option is well hidden. Select your
text, then click on Table>Sort, and you'll be given the possibility to
enter your sorting criteria.

Suggest you always use Ctrl+A to select all cells on the
sheet *before* invoking the sort then you won't have the
problem. Read more on sorting

I have made a table to use as a Membershiplist in MSPub.

Copy it into a Spreadsheet and sort it there.
The use of a Spreadsheet is only limited by your imagination, and is not
only for crunching numbers.
Then just copy and paste it into Publisher.
Just post back if you need any further assistance.

Select the whole range to sort, then Data|Sort.
The easiest way is to first select all cells on the sheet.
Unless you have separate sections to be sorted independently
you would normally first select all cells on the sheet.
Just thought it might seem ambiguous if you don't already know the answer.

I have four columns filled with data. Now I want to alphabetize the first

relevant item in the first column.
First use your mouse to highlight all of the cells that you would like to

header row. Then in the (sort by) drop box select the column that you would
like to sort by and click OK.

If you have a column of the names, highlight them all and then click Tools>Sort
and work your way through the panels. Excel will then sort everything
alphabetically for you.
If the column of names is followed by other columns of corresponding data,
you'll need to highlight all the columns so when the names are sorted into order
their corresponding data will move with them.

Is there some function in Excel (VBA) that will get me the column

(2) Re-invent the wheel

You can't do this in Publisher. You would have to use the mail merge
feature and use Excel and sort your list using Excel.

You need to create an additional column that contains only the
last name, and sort on that column. For simple first and last
names, the following formula will return the last name of the
full name in A1.
Copy this formula down as far as you need to go.

Click on any one last name.
Then, Look for the Sort Ascending Button on the Standard Toolbar. It looks
like a Blue A above a Red Z. Click that button once.
Click on any cell in the phone list (such as a last name).
Go to Data | Sort.
Make sure it is selecting the Last Name Column in the Sort by position.
