1-How do I get the info sorted back (in order of entry) after sorting up, then saving file in error? 2-I want to use 1 column to sort, but take along the information in adjacent columns. Help!!

How do I get the info sorted back...

Once you exit OOo, the undo information is lost--you have to live with what's saved in the file.
If your data somehow includes the original order, e.g. if the data were entered consecutively and you included the date, then you can re-sort the data by the date column.

Don't use the toolbar buttons--instead, use Data > Sort. There you can choose what column(s) to sort by. That will automatically include all the data around the cursor and keep the rows together.
