I use 'Excel for Mac '. I understand the use of freezing panes.

How do I sort a column AND still retain the 1 heading 'row' intact at the top and not be included in the sort? I need to globally select the WHOLE column - as I have hundreds and hundreds of rows and I don't want to have to selectively select the data in the column ie by leaving out the heading. I am unable to get the above solutions working in Excel for Mac.

Solution will be greatly appreciated. Hi LR. I know your pain I have an Excel spreadsheet that does this to me as well. Not sure if it's a Mac thing, but it's an old Excel for Windows spreadsheet that I transferred to the Mac. Oddly, I don't have that problem if I create a new table in the Mac version.
