Sheet1

In a worksheet, I have a range of data K1:M8, containing data, this data has been generated byK1 = A1, L1 = B1, =M1 = C1
After selecting the whole range I can't get it to sort by selecting, Sort by Colum K3, or by heading 6, that in the program contains velocities.( 1451.01235,1347.34568) etc...)
Would this be on account of the columns containing formulas?
I found out that I can do it by highlighting the whole range, K1:M8, then click K1l, and select Copy, then click on the same cell again and select Paste special/Values.
As this program will be used by members, whose computer knowledge is zilch this would be too complicated. Is there a more simple method it could be done

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).

I presume that even if cells have formula it can be sorted accoriding to that co;lumn.

try highlighting whole database from col a t0 the end of column and end of rows and then sort.
