Hello

I have two columns of data. When cell A13, say, is blank then so is the corresponding cell in B column. I want to sort the tidy and hence tidy it up so that all the non blank cells is at teh top but I don't want to affect the order in any other way.
Is there any way of doing this

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

You could add a column on far right and sort on that column. If it's column E, sort A:E based on E. You could use E1=if(trim(A1)="",0,A1&B1)

You might instead prefer to insert a new column A and do the same thing. In either case, you might or might not wish to use a tiny width like 1 or even .1, or hidden with width 0.

My definition of E1 contents is not rigid.
