From: Delya on 8 May 2010 11:17 Hi I have simple question I have 2 coumns A and B A1 is text and B1 is numbers and so on.. depending of B columns numbers , i want colums C to show alway lowest numbers on top, but also text like if A1,B1 is Mike 29 then A2,B2 is Josh 34, then column C shows Mike 29 but on top, not as a secon row.. From: Dave Peterson on 8 May 2010 11:42 Couldn't you just sort by column B in ascending order and leave the data right where it is? If that's not ok, how about an alternative? I'd add a new column C. Then use a formula like this in C1: =text(a1,"000")&"-"&b1 and drag down. You'd see: 029-Mike Then I'd sort the entire range (A:C) by column C. ps. Since this formula in column C returns text, you'll have to use the format in the =text() portion to make sure that all the digits are showing -- use the worse case scenario.
