    I know that I've used Open Office in the past to alphabetize a long list of names, but it's been so long I've forgotten how.:confused:

    It seems I remember clicking an "A-Z" button in order to sort alphabetically; however, I don't see that button now. I feel sure I must be overlooking it somehow.

    I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who knows how to alphabetize using Open Office.

    You don't say if you are using the word processor, spreadsheet, etc.

    However, in wordprocessor if you wish to sort items in a list--- Highlight the list, then goto TOOLS>SORT

    There are options there to specify

    That's exactly what I was looking for -- thanks a million!!!:) :) :) That's what I used to do, but somehow I had forgotten the process. You've been a big help!

    By the way, I am using the word processor.
