I have a wine display set up almost like a spreadsheet. Columns 1-30, and Rows A-E. Wines are identified in the system and in the storage room to find them easily. Right now I have them listed as A-1, B-5 ect.
In my Excel spreadsheet, I can't figure out how to sort it correctly. It comes out like this..... I have also switched it to 1-B, 10-C Etc and have the same issue. Ideas? Thanks!
Whether you write the locations like A-1 or 1-A, they are text values, so they will be sorted alphabetically, not numerically. The easiest way is to use A-01 if you want to sort on the letter first, then on the number, or 01-A if you want to sort on the number first, then on the letter.
Alternatively, use column E to store only the letters A to E, and column F to store the numbers 1 to 30.
