Default How do I undo a sort?

Hi,

I sorted a column A to Z in a very large spreadsheet and saved the file, but
I wish to cancel the sort. Is there any way I can do this?

Thanks,
Teresa

Not after you saved it, time to pull out the backup files and reload it.

Teresa,

Once you have saved it, you cannot use undo, since that clears the undo stack. But you can simply
re-sort it on other columns - there is no loss of data, and whatever functionality you have should
survive the sort.

I read the issue as a SINGLE column was selected and sorted, basically
destroying the spreadsheet.
