    Post Sorting Conflict-Numbers referencing other cells

    Hello,

    I was wondering if I could get some help sorting this data
    Currently, there are many cells with a name followed by (#) # for any number
    I have used the two columns to the right to only leave behind the # in order to sort them.
    Is there any way to sort these numbers from highest to lowest or lowest to highest and still keep the row in tact. I would like the name to also follow the sorting of the number so that they will match up in the end.

    I have attached a test copy that can be used as a reference.

    thanks

    I don't quite understand what you mean, but I changed your number extraction formula to:

    so that only one helper column is needed. I was able to sort on column B, A without any problems.
