    Change all data from top to bottom and sort rows

    Happy new year to everyone,

    I have a few hundred rows of data in 7 columns in which I want to turn it all upside down. How do I do that?

    I also need to sort the same rows of data from smallest to largest (left to right) but the "Sort" function in Excel 97 only allow me to perform a row at a time. Is their a way it can perform all rows in one go?

    Many thanks

    Fill a simple sequence 1, 2, 3, etc down the 8th column. Then sort using that column in descending order.

    Have you really got XL 97 ? In your profile it says XL2007.

    Hope this helps.

    Something wrong today - the above post does not appear in my UserCP list.

    Hi Pete,

    Sorry I took so long to reply. I actually thought no one reply to me because I normally get an e-mail notification. I don't know about your UserCP list. Anyone, typing error, I have 2007.

    I try your suggestion but I can only find sort smallest to largest vice versa . My data are ramdom. Their must be a way. Help!

    In the Sort Order box you have a pull-down arrow - click on this to select Largest to Smallest.

    Hope this helps.
