    When I go to sort a column, I would like the rest of the row to remain intact with the sort. Is there some way to "lock" the row so a "column sort" will retain the data across the row?

    dees nuts:

    Try selecting the ~entire~ affected area, not just that column. Try this:

    * Select entire area to be sorted
    * Go to the 'Data' drop down menu
    * Select 'Sort'
    * Fill in the rest

    As a tip, there is a selection button in this control that allows for you to use a header row (which will bring your header names into the drop-down menu).

    See if this does what you're looking for.
