I made a table 4 colums wide and 4 pages long. The colum titles on each page are Name, Surname, Number, Date. I do an a to z sort on the Name column ascending and the titles on page 1 are ok. The problem is that the titles on pages 2, 3, 4 get sorted and move up the list. What sort settings do use to not sort the Name, Surname, Number, Date so they stay at the top of page 2, 3, 4. Thank you.

Your sort settings are fine, this problem occurs on multiple sheet tables when the titles have been manually added to the table on additional pages.

You need to use the repeat headers function as follows:

  1. Click anywhere in the title header row on page 1
  2. Click the “layout” tab.
  3. In the “Data” Group click “Repeat Header Rows”

Now the titles that you typed at the top of the table will be automatically added to the top of each page. The A to Z sort will ignore them so they will always stay at the top of each page.

You will need to locate and delete the titles that you added manually to pages 2,3 and 4, this shouldn’t be a problem since they will now all be sorted together.
