Hi I'm wondering if it is possible for someone to do me something up as I'm no coder. What I'm essentially wanting to do is be able to search through a list of words within excel and filter out anything that is not in the standard English dictionary and also remove numbers; these words will have either .list or .code after them as well. I then want to be able to sort that list by least amount of letters within the word.

So for example I have a column full of the following:

adsa22.list
al5odf.code
memory.list
memory3.list
blpp.code
red.list

so from that list I would only be left with the following:

red.list
memory.code

Not sure if that can be done but if it would be much appreciated, also I am willing to pay some money if need be :)

Cheers,
Mike.
