How can I sort a group of paragraphs?

Sort outside of tables in MS Word

Most people are aware that you can sort information in a Word table (if you weren't, then I guess you are now), but you can also sort any other text within your document.

Select the text that you'd like to sort (either paragraphs, lists or bulleted/numbered lists) and select Sort from the Table menu. Select Paragraphs from the Sort By menu and then choose either Text, Number or Date from the Type menu. Select either ascending or descending and press OK.
