I am busy cataloging my CD collection in Excel, is there a way to sort the different lists alphabetically by either album name or artist after they have been inserted. This would also help for the future insertion of new Cd's.

Select the data, Data > Sort and follow the wizard.

Excel's sort feature only allows you to pick up to 3 columns to sort by - here is how to get around this. The trick is sorting by the last key first and working back to the first key. Say your data is in Columns A:E and you want to sort by A, B, C, D then E:


1. Select all of Columns A:E
2. Go to Data>Sort> sort by C then by D then by E
3. Click Sort
4. Now again with Columns A:E selected
5. Go to Data>Sort> sort by A then by B
6. Click Sort
