I have 2 columns. One with a name and one with the number associated with that name. The numbers are weighted averages so not whole integers (1.3,1.7,3.4 ect...). There are also empty rows due to a previous pass to eliminate them from the list. I'm using excel 2008 but the sort I'm trying to do (descending) doesn't work. It gets confused with the empty cell and also if I change the empty row output to a zero. Does anyone know the best way for me to sort the data and keep the correct name with the integer?
