in excell can I unsort

Boss likes to keep spread sheet in the order he recived them, totally unsorted.

For some of the things I neeed to do (block pastes ) I need to sort.

How can I sort it my way, and then set the sheet back to his way ( unsorted mess ? ).

thx

You can't - hoawever you could add another column and number it sequentially before you do anything to it, the sort it on that column again once finished.

The only way I can think of, is to add in a column (temporarily) numbering the rows starting with 1 on up to the total number of rows you have in the spreadsheet (so, enter 1 in A1, 2 in A2, 3 in A3, then copy all the way down).  Then save.  Sort the file any way you wish.  Then when you're done, to return it to the order he had it in, just sort one final time on that first column (& delete it, if it confuses him).

No code... No Tricks

One best way that I can think of is to sort the file, do the work and then close the file without saving it :)
