it probably seems that Word would be used for letter-type text

Resolved Question:

it probably seems that Word would be used for letter-type text and Excel for numbers and sorting text entries. However, can you do this data manipulation (sorting text or numbers) in a Word table? If so, how?

jsterq :

Yes, select the rows you wish to sort in your table in Word (do not select the header row). Then go to the layout tab and find the sort button near the right. You can now select how you would like to sort using the options given (for example by which column, by date or alphabetically or by number, etc). Alternatively, you can insert excel tables into a word document. After the table is inserted, you can sort the columns using the options given at the top of each column.
