Hello All,

I am trying to group rows of data so that when I sort by date the corresponding expense entries remain tied to the date and place the they occurred. My difficulty arrieses in that each set of expense types (ie. repair, galley expenses, fees, services) is only 3 columns wide (date, price, and paid to).

I can currently only group rows so that the grouping extends all the way across the columns. Or, to put it another way, my grouping is grabbing more columns than I want it to.

My spreadsheet has probably 8 different categories of expense, if each section of 3 columns could be grouped I would be a happy spreadsheeter.

Thanks,

B

I think that I figured it out. I don't need to group. I can simply highlight all 3 columns and then sort by the first column.
