Can I sort the contents of a table?

With Word Online you can add tables to your document, but to sort the table contents you need to open and edit the document in the desktop version of Word.

Click Edit Document > Edit in Word, or click Open in Word.

Then follow the instructions in Sort the contents of a table.

When you save the document in the desktop version of Word and reopen it in Word Online, you’ll see the changes you made.

If you don’t have the desktop version of Word, you can try it or buy it in the latest version of Office now.
