Sorting Table Data
Figure 15-12 The Table Positioning dialog box enables you to control the default table position
for your document.
These choices include the following:
The horizontal and vertical positioning of the table (choose Left, Right, Center, Inside,
or Outside)
The element to which the table position is relative (choose Margin, Page, Column for
the horizontal position and Margin, Page, Paragraph for the vertical position)
The space you want to leave between the table and surrounding text
Whether you want to allow the text to overlap the table boundary and whether you
want the table to stay fixed in place or move with text if it is reformatted
Different tables require different settings. Take the time to experiment with the best
effects for your particular table.
Sorting Table Data
One of the great features of Word tables is that they provide more than a clear way of
organizing data—they also give you a means of reorganizing data. Word includes a Sort
function so that you can easily reorder the information in your table by searching and
sorting on certain key words or phrases. You might, for example, want to organize a conference
registration list by sorting first according to state and then alphabetically by last name.
To use the Sort feature, select the table data you want to sort and click Sort in the Data
group on the Layout tab. In the Sort dialog box, enter your preferences for the sort
procedure and click OK to complete it.
