Not sure if this is the correct area to ask since it appears to be general app related. I wanted some info about sorting in Numbers App on the iPad Air. If help is available, I will provide the details.

 

Thank you

Thank you.

 

I'm aware of how to sort in Numbers by clicking on the top bar above the column I want to sort. The problem is I have data starting at row 4 and ending at row 40. When I do a normal sort in ascending order, the highest number will be on top and my main document title along with the category (column) titles end up at the bottom. Is there a way to sort just the row 4 through 40 as can be done in Excel?

Sorry for not responding sooner…I was traveling.

I will take a look at it on my iPad and get back to you later tonight.

OK, I looked at Numbers on my iPad.

To do what you want, you will need to designate the first three rows as "header rows" (these will be the grey rows at the top of the sheet). This is done by tapping on the paint brush icon. This will bring up a dialog box with four tabs. Tap on the tab labelled "Headers". You can then use the + and - button to change which rows at the top are "Header" rows.

Now, when you sort, anything in a "Header" row (as I said before, they will be grey in color) will NOT be included in the sorting.
