Default Sort Data Into Numerical Order..!

I have a list which contains something like the following
Prodcut 1 10
Product 2 7
Product 3 9
Product 4 11

I want a table in another sheet to look up this list and automatically put
it into descending order so that for example Product 4 would be at the top
and Product 2 would be at the bottom. I hope this is clear, it is frustrating
me quite badly so thanks in advance to any help you can give.

Hi, Scooby

assuming each product has a different code and you have a space beteween the
code and the number that you would like to sort, use an auxiliar column to
sort it with this formula:

=mid(a2,search(" ",a2,1)+1,255)

copy it down and sort by this column

Say your original datalist is on Sheet1, from A1 to B4,
But you intend to add additional data at a later time, say down to B100.

On Sheet2, enter this formula in A1:

=IF(Sheet1!B1,LARGE(Sheet1!$B$1:$B$100,ROWS($1:1)) ,"")

And enter this formula in B1:

=IF(ISNA(MATCH(A1,Sheet1!$B$1:$B$100,0)),"",INDEX( Sheet1!$A$1:$A$100,MATCH(A
1,Sheet1!$B$1:$B$100,0)))

Then, select *both* A1 and B1, and drag down to copy, down to Row100.

Now, every time you make a new entry on Sheet1, the list on Sheet2 will
*automatically* sort itself.
