How to Alphabetize a List in Works/Word Documents

If you made a list and want to sort it alphabetically, Microsoft Word can do it for you. But if you're using Microsoft Works, you'll need to paste your list into a spreadsheet and use its "Sort" function before re-pasting the list into Works.

Step

Type your list, in no particular order, with each item on a separate line.

Step

Highlight the complete list.

Step

In the "Home" tab, in the "Paragraph" group, select "Sort."

Step

In the Sort Text dialog, navigate to "Sort by." Then select "Paragraphs and Text, and then click either "Ascending" or "Descending." Add more entries to the bottom of the list as necessary. Repeat the sort procedure of the list with the additions.
