Default How do I save my 'sort criteria' in an Excel file?

Having established a sort order over 3 columns in a file, I find that it
works quite well with no problems. When I return to that file after
inserting new data, and wish to re-sort to the previous established sort
order, I find that I have to go through the 3 columns again to set my order.
There does not appear to be any way to save that sort order for that
particular file.
I am using Microsoft Excel 2000 v 9.0.6926 SP3

As long as the sort range has not changed dramatically, Excel should
remember the previous sort used.

Option 1: Instead of using a specific range (A1:C100) you might try
sorting the entire columns (A:C). All of the blank items should go to
the bottom..and as long as you don't have totals, it should work the
same without any extra tweaking.

Option 2: Create a macro to do the specific kind of sort you want.
Then just run your macro every time (I've used that for some sorts I do
just so that I don't have to click "Data-Sort-OK" all of the time).

Could U set up a custom view for the data that you to retrieve?
I have used that for same criteria data that was repetitious, I customized
various views pulling the fields of info I needed for a particular report.
It was a 'quick fix' for what I needed and not enough time/experience to
figure it all out..
