Question about sorting based on the last numerals of a code in a column

Hello,
I need some help either sorting or filtering a list. There is one column with a long numerical code, and I need to sort the list based on the last seven digits of this code. Is this possible? If so, how?
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,
Jennifer

Let's say in A1 you have your digits then in B1 apply this formula..

=right(a1,7)

Open in new window


This will give you the 7 digits from the right side and then you can play around with this to do what you are looking for..

Thank you!

A few questions:
1. Will this formula need to be repeated for each row?
2. If there is already a B row will I need to create a new one in which to enter the formula?

Thanks again

Here your replies..

1. Yes it needs to be created for each row and you can simply drop down it will update the formula automatically when you drag it for the relevant cell.

2. Yes apply this formula in the empty cell or column where you can apply it..and you can refer to the right cell like in this case im referring it to a1..you can change basis of your needs..

the column with the =Right() formula can be a hidden column.
