    Hello All,

    I have an excel spreadsheet which has the following data:

    Column A Column B Column C

    Jimmy Smith [email protected]
    Fred Jones [email protected]
    etc, etc

    There are 6000 rows of data which I need to sort alphabetically by domain i.e. after the @

    Can anyone please help me with this. I've looked on Google by I can't get any of the suggested methods or formulas to work.

    Many thanks :)

    In Excel 2010, you highlight the whole column by selecting the letter at the top of the column. Then, go to the data tab at the top. In the middle, you will see "Sort" Next to that, you have the letters a and z with an arrow. Click one those.

    if you need to sort the domain after the @sign , I would make a helper column
    in that column put
    =MID(C2,FIND("@",C2,1)+1,LEN(C2)-(FIND("@",C2,1)))
    copy down the 6000 rows
    that will extract just the domain name
    now use that column to sort all you data

    Copy the formula
    if you use the cell reference area and put in there D6000
    then select the cell
    use the
    Shift + control and up arrow keys together - that should highlight all the cells in column D
    now with the mouse over the column
    Paste
    should paste the formula into all the cells

    see attached
