    I have completed my database. I put one column in alphabetical order, and proceed to another, the column I just alphabetized goes back the way it was. They won't all stay alphabetical. What's the deal? Help?

    This happens in Excel too, putting a column in alphabetical order is assumed to mean that you want all the rows to still contain the original values.

    In Excel, you can highlight the data in the column and this sorts only that column - Then move on to the next column, etc.

    If that doesn't work in Works, you may want to
    sort the first column,
    cut and paste the remaining columns into separate worksheets (one column, one worksheet) and
    then sort them,
    then copy them all back...
