    Need help for Dummies. I have been sent a Word table that opens fine in Pages. I need to add names and info to it. How do I sort the new table (Pages) A to Z?

    I -am not- an expert in either Word or Tables.

    A few thoughts if I was in a similar predicament.

    I might try this:
    1. Open the table in Pages
    2. Copy everything out of it and paste into a Numbers spreadsheet
    3. Try sorting the data in the spreadsheet, then...
    4. Paste the sorted data BACK INTO the Pages table

    Another thing I might try:
    If you don't have Word, download "NeoOffice" (it's free)
    Open the table in NeoOffice's word processor (should open Word files directly)
    See if the N-O WP module gives you the option to sort a table (I have no idea if it can or not)...
