Quickly Sort Paragraphs in MS Word

When working with bulleted lists in Word you may sometimes want to sort the list in alphabetical order.  Word has a handy Sort feature that you can use.  When you use the Sort feature in Excel it will automatically select the range of cells but in Word you always have to select the paragraphs you want to sort.

To sort paragraphs in Word:

  1. Select the paragraphs you want to sort
  2. On the Home tab in the Paragraph group, click on the Sort button
  3. In the Sort Text dialog box, click on OK

You can also use this to sort rows in a Word table.
