Tech Tip – Putting A List In Alphabetical Order By Surname In Microsoft Word

If you’re using Microsoft Word and you need to put a list in alphabetical order based on the second word in each list entry, e.g. by surname in a list of names, here’s how:

– Highlight the text list.

– Click on the A-Z button in the top menu (Home > Sort), and ‘Options’ (bottom left list).

– Select ‘Other,’ delete and any characters in there, press the spacebar (moving the cursor one space to the right), and click on ‘OK.’

– In the dropdown ‘Sort by’ menu, select ‘Word2’, and click on ‘OK’.

– The list will now be re-arranged into alphabetical order for the second word / surname.
