JQuery Sortable; need to be able to drag and drop rows within a table

Let me start by telling you that I am a complete newbie so please be patient with me.  
I am trying to build a table which would allow the users to sort the table results using drag/drop.  I am using PHP to connect to a SQL Server database.  It has been recommended that I use J-Query Sortable found at this website:  JQuery-Sortable

About 3/4 way through the above website, there is an example for sorting rows within a table.  But I can not figure out how to make it work.  If someone could please provide me with step by step instructions on what to do I would really appreciate it.  

Because I am so new to coding / php / JQuery, I need to use the same JQuery the other coders on the team are using or be able to demonstrate why something else would be better for the team to use.  So Ideally, I'd like to get this one to work.

Hi,
as far as I can see, the initial selector is wrong.
It should be
$('#sortable').sortable({

Open in new window

Here a sample based on your code:

And: in your HTML file, you miss the script reference to jQuery :-)
You just have jQuery UI reference.
