AutoQuotes Tech Tuesday – Moving, Sorting, and Renumbering

How to Move, Sort, and Renumber Items

There are times when you will find a need to move an item up or down within the project spreadsheet. Additionally, the need may arise to sort and/or renumber items. All three of these functions can be easily accomplished by using the simple steps outlined below.

Moving

To move an item up or down, first select it in the spreadsheet. Then, while holding down the ‘CTRL’ key, press the ‘up’ or ‘down’ arrow on the keyboard. 

Sorting

Sorting items within the project spreadsheet can be easily accomplished by clicking the arrow within the ‘ItemNo’ column header.

Upon clicking the arrow, you will see a dialog asking you if you wish to proceed.

After clicking ‘OK’, the project will be sorted.

Renumbering

To renumber items within the project spreadsheet, click the ‘Renumber’ button located in the ribbon at the top of the spreadsheet. There are two options available for renumbering. These are ‘Renumber Selected Items’ and “Renumber All Items’.

AQ supports numeric, alpha-numeric, and alpha only combinations.
