Im sorry i dont want to sort alphabetically. i would like to put them in order according to the number in the second colum. My example was bad. On sheet 1 "A" colum is a list of names and colum "B" is a list of numbers. I would like to take the names and put them on sheet 2 in order numerically by the number that is in colum "b" in sheet 1. I can cut and paste them in order but i was hoping there was a fast way. thank you

Hi,

In sheet 2, you can test following formula:
Code:
=INDEX(Sheet1!$A$1:$A$5,MATCH(SMALL(Sheet1!$B$1:$B$5,ROW()),Sheet1!$B$1:$B$5,0))
