I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sub SortWords()
Dim lngLastRow As Long
Dim lngRow As Long
Dim strWords() As String
Dim lngIndex As Long
Dim arrList As Object
Dim varObject As Variant

Set arrList = CreateObject("System.Collections.ArrayList")
Const DATA_COL = "A" ' Change as needed
Const FIRST_ROW = 1 ' Change as needed

lngLastRow = Range(DATA_COL & "1048576").End(xlUp).Row

For lngRow = FIRST_ROW To lngLastRow
    strWords = Split(Cells(lngRow, DATA_COL), ",")
    For lngIndex = 0 To UBound(strWords)
        arrList.Add Trim(strWords(lngIndex))

    Cells(lngRow, DATA_COL).ClearContents
    For Each varObject In arrList
        Cells(lngRow, DATA_COL) = Cells(lngRow, DATA_COL) & varObject & ", "
    Cells(lngRow, DATA_COL) = Left(Cells(lngRow, DATA_COL), Len(Cells(lngRow, DATA_COL)) - 2)
