Hi,
I want to type the names of various charities, each on a separate line. Then I want to alphabetize this "list". I don't care what application I use. If I can do it in TextEdit, fine. Otherwise I can do it in Word. i haven't been able to find the answer on my own. Thank you in advance for your kind and generous help.

Warm Regards,
Carol

Have you considered using a spreadsheet column? You could then sort it alphabetically and print.

As Donna suggested, a column in Numbers or Excel can be sorted.
TextEdit doesn't provide this ability, even in its Tables function.
There are some online sites that will do it for you.

You can do it in Word without a problem, Carol. Think of each line as a paragraph.

First, make sure that Ribbon is checked under the View menu. Select the text, then click on the icon that has A over Z with the down arrow along side. It will bring up a Sort Text menu. Just set it to Sort by Paragraphs and Ascending. Click OK and it will sort.

Thank you Donna and Chuck and Phyllis for all your wonderful ideas. I feel much more capable now of doing what needs to be done. I want to be able to add and subtract charities to my alphabetized list.
Thank goodness for our iBBS!
It rocks and rules!

With gratitude,
Carol
