The purpose of ordering is to organize items in a sequence and organized from A to Z or least to greatest.

• Categorizing is the same as grouping when you arrange items into their related areas of interest.

• You can sort through them on the basis of color or value criteria.

• Two column items and units.

• Sort the column in ascending order from smallest to largest.

• The column is sorted in A to Z ascending order.

• Sort the item column in descending order from Z to A while maintaining the appropriate changes being administered.

• In word on the document home screen there is an icon with and A, Z, and a down arrow when selected it will put your document into the sort mode and you will be able to sort up or down.

• Just mark the part of the document you wish to sort and select the icon, this will take you to a pop up where you can choose what you want.

The correct answer to this question is the Sort command from the Data menu. This command is apart of the word processing program Microsoft Word. To sort the data, first, click on the menu bar. Next, click the word Insert. A popup menu will appear, where you should click the table.

From there, click the number of rows that you wish each table to have, along with the number of columns. Once the table is set up, you may then enter the data, including words and numbers. They do not need to be added in any particular order, for they will all be sorted.

The answer is Sort command from Table menu. Have you ever started calculating or arranging data into a specific order and realize that either it does not make sense to be in that order or that you want to change the order but do not want to manually have to re-enter the information?

If you are using the program Microsoft Word, then you are in luck as there is a very simple solution! Simply use the sort command from the data menu in Microsoft Word to change the arrangement of the data from ascending to descending order or vice versa. This is a quick tip which can help save a lot of time if used in a situation like this.

In Microsoft word, you can organize data in a table. To do this, click on the menu bar. You will need to click on insert. Many objects will pop up for you to choose from. Click on table and choose the number of rows and columns to include in your table. Then you can enter the data which may consist of words as well as numerical data.

When you do this, you can merely enter the data in any order because after you enter the data you can sort it by different methods. To arrange the data in ascending or descending order, you click on the data menu. Then click sort. This command will have different boxes for you to choose from. You can sort by ascending or descending order.
