    Question Arrange by last name when names are in the same cell

    Hi!

    I want to arrange a column that has full names in the same cells by the last names in that cell. Without spliting the cells or changing the order of 'first name + last name'. Does anyone know how to do this in the later excel versions?

    Disclaimer: In older versions of excel you can arrange by the second word in a cell and so on. I've read all about these ways online. But in the 2019 excel version these options do not exist. At least not where they did. And I cannot find a solution.

    Thank you for any help!!

    Attach a sample workbook (not a picture or pasted copy). Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Rule 03: Cross-posting Without Telling Us

    Your post does not comply with Rule 3 of our Forum RULES. Do not cross-post your question on multiple forums without telling us about your threads on other forums.

    Post a link to any other forums where you have asked the same question.

    Cross-posting is when you post the same question in other forums on the web. The last thing you want to do is waste people's time working on an issue you have already resolved elsewhere. We prefer that you not cross-post at all, but if you do (and it's unlikely to go unnoticed), you MUST provide a link (copy the url from the address bar in your browser) to the cross-post.

    Read this to understand why we ask you to do this.

    I have added the crosspost reference for you today. Please comply with this and all our rules in the future
