I have microsoft excel starter that I downloaded for free. I want to create a table with "names" column on the left and numbers columns on the right. It there any way to sort the numbers while also changing the order of the names? For example, steve, bill, mathew etc. column on the left and "bought x number of products" column on the right. when I sort the numbers the names are not reorganized along with the numbers.
Excel will sort a continuous table this way by default providing no data is selected OR all data is selected. IF you have only one column of the table highlighted then excel will just sort this selection.
Hope this explains it but let me know if you need further help
