Ordering rows in excel

New Contributor

Hi. I have a document of 5,499 rows of text that don't have any type of order, so to be able to work with it more easily (I needed to translate the text) I ordered ir alphabetically. But now the client wants the text in the original order. How can I do this? Thanks.

if you remember the original order or can produce the original order by some kind of logic then put an enumeration in the next column and sort by this column.


a 3
is 2
test 4
This 1


This 1
is 2
a 3




Yes, I have the original un-edited document. Thank you, I will research this option.
