I have a large Excel table (10000 lines, 15 rows)

Some lines has been colored in red, others in blue and others not colored and I want to sort the Table according to colors
So I will be able to delete or move all red or blue lines together

Is it possible to sort an Excel table according to the color of the line?

thank you

Hi,

Since excel 2007, it is easy

On the Data tab, click Sort
Sort by your col, sort on Cell Color (or Font Color and Cell Icon), and select the color for the first level.
Click 'Copy Level'and select the other color if necessary.
 Click OK.
