    I do a lot of MSWORD spreadsheet sorts. But after selecting the cell, it takes a lot of clicks: edit>select col, then tools>sort>sort all the info> OK > ascending

    That's seven clicks for each sort.

    Any way to set up a macro, or get it to default to selecting the column of the cell I'm in, and sorting all the info (ascending) with just one keystroke?

    Or, am I just dreaming of a world that will never be????

    Simple answer would be to use Excel as the spreadsheet, you are asking a Word Processor to do something it's not really good at or primarily designed for.
