    I have asked this before and I can’t find it on the forum.

    We have 5 sheets of this to cross off as we find the items in the box.

    If BASS6UN could be next to BASS6TR on the invoice it would make my life so much better.

    I’ve spoken to the company in question and they say they can’t supply an invoice in any sort of order.

    With computers being clever these days I’m certain there must be a way of doing it either at their end or mine.

    IS that just a table in word?  If so just select the table, go into the Table Tools/Layout option on the ribbon then click the sort button.

    I have no idea what any of that means!

    More importantly, what the hell is a Willie Walrus?


    I’ve spoken to the company in question and they say they can’t supply an invoice in any sort of order.

    No, what that means is they are too **** lazy/disorganised to do this.

    You should insist. What is your clout?

    How did they prepare this list? Did they enter the data into the list purely at random?

    I quite often come across this s–t in the course of my work when completing a pre-shipment inspection before equipment is shipped off shore or to a site somewhere.

    There are some right lazy people about.

    If I get to the supplier and the shipping list is not in a logical order, and the equipment is not laid out in a logical order and in a space I can get round to check then I refuse to do the job.

    It will be my fault if something gets missed. Image a bag of ‘special’ washers missing when the kit is unpacked on a North Sea rig!!!. You cannot just pop down the road to get another bag of washers. Might hold the job up for days. Could be costing £1m per day.

    They get an invoice from me anyway if the inspection is completed or not, and then another invoice if I have to make  2nd visit to complete the job.

    If you’re not au fait with Word etc and so can’t/won’t follow the instructions provided then either learn it or cut your invoice into strips with some scissors and tape it back together in alphabetic order.

    Ok ,  what is Word and where do I find it?

    In a dictionary. There are lots to be found. I’d favour the scissors approach personally, that’s a fantastic idea.

    Can you not export it to an Excel file?


    Looks like a pdf the w in the top is Words with Friends?

    One screen you are on touch and hold a word until the wee menu comes up and hit select all or drag the wee arrows at the ends of the blue highlighted word and drag it as far as the ends of the table..

    Open excel on your phone or google sheets you may need to download.

    Click in a cell and hold it until you get the option to paste pop up hit that. It’ll dump everything in the

    Then you can sort it using filters and stuff by selecting everything making in the table including the headings.

    Not sure how you do the actual sort but its a basic option it should be available pretth easily.
