If your using windows:
Open cmd.exe (program files>accessories>command prompt)
use the sort command in this syntax:

sort "path name and or file name"

you may also use file exports like this for example:

sort birthdays.txt > sorted birthdays.txt (single forward will write over old files and make new ones)
sort birthdays.txt >> sorted birthdays.txt (use double forwards to made amendments to the file)

the "/R" function will reverse the sort order, for example:

sort /R birthdays.txt

thats all, hope this helps. I cant do much else with the information given.

How to calculate median

Sort the data into ascending or descending order. If there's an odd number of data points then the median is the one in the middle. If there's an even number of data points then the median is the average of the two in the middle. Add the two together then divide by 2.

When I save a word document file to "Documents" they are no longer being saved in alphabetic order? Whats gone wrong and how do I fix it?

When you open that folder ( or any other), you have the option to sort by file name, file type, date, etc... Click on name at the top, and it will switch to sorting that way. Click it again to change from ascending to descending and vice versa.

I'm following all of the steps to sorting a list - but when I go back to look at it, it did not sort. Please help!

Enter the data in any order in your list. Press [2nd][Quit] to exit the data editor.
In Main screen, press STAT, select SortA( for ascending or SortD( for descending order.
The command echoes on main screen as SortA(. Press [2nd][1] for L1 or 2nd 2 for L2. Close parenthesis and press ENTER. The L1 list or the L2 list will be sorted.
If the list are linked you must sort them together. In that case the syntax is SortA( L1,L2) ENTER.The list will be sorted according to the order in L1.
