How to sort data in Product list?
When you have a lot of products, it might become challenging to choose from the drop-down menu in the Invoice worksheet, especially if the product IDs/Names are not sorted. By default, the order in which you entered the products in the Products table will be used as it is in the drop-down menu. That means you could sort the products in the Products table and this would automatically give you sorted products in the drop-down menu. This should help you in the easier selection of products in the invoice.
Choose the cells in the Products table, Right Click –> Sort.
