Hi Turbo, I saw a post regarding auto sort in Excel. I attempted to follow your instructions for newbie, but I couldn't make it work. Slurpee attempted to help, but referred me back to you. I hear your the expert. In short, I have a 7 column spreadsheet with names in the first column. I am creating it for someone who knows nothing about Excel; therefore, I need it to sort automatically when she enters the name of the person. Will you explain step-by-step how I can do that?
