MS Excel: Sort data in alphabetical order based on 1 column in Excel 2011 for Mac

See solution in other versions of Excel:

Question: In Microsoft Excel 2011 for Mac, I'm trying to put a chart in alphabetical order. There are 6 columns and over 2,000+ rows of information. I need to sort the data by column B (ie: Product column) in alphabetical order. How do I do this?

Answer: To apply a sort in Excel, highlight the data that you wish to sort. Then select the Data tab from the toolbar at the top of the screen. Then click on the Sort button and select Custom Sort from the popup menu.

Microsoft Excel

When the Sort window appears, select the data that you wish to sort by. In this example, we want to sort by the Product column (column B) in alphabetical order (A to Z). Click on the OK button.

Microsoft Excel

Now when you return to the spreadsheet, the data should be sorted.
