Honorable
i have used this and other versions of word for many years so i am familiar with how tables work , the example i have shown below is to demonstrate the problem i have encountered.
As you can see the sample is made up of 2 columns so lets imagine i add the word brass to column 2 , before doing the column sort it will be below concrete , i highlight column 2 to do sort column 2 and they will be placed in the proper alphabetical order.
My problem is ...... the numbers in column 1 also change position just as if they were tagged to the words ....... this is not supposed to happen

Excel, then copy and paste to Word or Outlook is generally how I deal with tables.

Advanced table structures in Word can get very messy, very fast. But you can make some interesting things.
