    When sorting a spreadsheet in MS Excel XP, is there a way to sort cell borders with the original rows and columns they were applied to? Thanks!

    No. Sorting shuffles the contents of a cell... not the cells themselves.

    Altough Mark IS right... maybe, depends on your spreadsheet, you could use Conditional Formatting to "tie" the formatting with the values.

    Though before sorting you could hide a column with the row values in it .. which could later then be used to refer to the orginal order.
