How to Sort Tables in Adobe Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver allows you to sort tables as long as they do not have merged cells. The following steps show how to sort a table.

This feature works the same in all recent versions of Adobe Dreamweaver: CS5, CS6, and Creative Cloud (CC).

  1. Place the cursor anywhere within the table to be sorted.

  2. Select Commands > Sort Table:
    Sort Table Under Commands

  3. The following dialog will pop up.
    Sort Table Dialog Box
    • Select the first column you want to sort by, the sort method (Alphabetically or Numerically), and the sort direction (Ascending or Descending).
    • If you want a secondary sort, fill out the Then by fields as well.
    • Check the appropriate Options.
    • Click OK.
