Data Sorting With Excel

Data sorting is the initial stage in organizing information. You can sort data in Excel by text, numbers, dates, or even colors. Additionally, you can sort in any relevant sequence, such as from oldest to newest or vice versa, by column or row, and you can even perform multi-level sorting. The main goal of sorting is to prepare your data for even more in-depth analysis; however, sorting will typically work if all you want to do is organize items logically.
