When you sort (Data>Sort), each key will have an Ascending or Descending option.
Simply check the appropriate button.

Not really that simple. Excel sorting requires care, or it can ruin the list. Read

Note: Some folks prefer bottom-posting. But if you bottom-post to a reply that's already
top-posted, the thread gets messy. When in Rome.
