Sorting a List Alphabetically In Pages

There is no built-in sort function in Pages, but you can easily sort cells in tables. To sort a list of text, you can copy and paste the list into a table, sort it, and then copy it back out. The trick is to merge the data into a single cell before copying back out of the table.

    “merge cells”…….
    AhHa! Who would guessed! Such an important step.
    I would have never thought to do that.
    Great tutorial.
    Thanks Gary

    Hi Gary
    I have a list of song titles and wish to sort alphabetically. I’ve followed your interesting tutorial but stumbled at the point where I have to select Sort Ascending. Having tried a few times nothing happens, the header is highlighted in blue as yours. I’ve obviously done something incorrect. Your guidance will help. My thanks in advance.

    Hi Gary
    With a little bit of perseverance I found out that each title should have it’s own row number. After that everything went smoothly.
    Thanks for a great tutorial.
