    Sort Table of Authorities by Page Number (2002)

    Does anyone know how to sort the TOA by page number? I have a user who wants to list the references as they appear, not by cite name... ???

    Yuck. Well, to each his own... I don't know how you would do it chronologically on each page, but I can sort the TOA by page number.
    1. You can select the TOA & press Ctrl+Shift+F9. This will unlink the TOA.
    2. Choose Table Menu/Convert/Text to table, using tab as a delimiter. This will give you a 2 column table with the page numbers in the second column.
    3. Now you can sort by the second column & then convert the table back to text.

    However, if you have 5 citations on the same page, I don't know how you can put those citations in order of appearance. And, of course, some of those same citations may appear in a different order on another page. Also, you'd have to redo this after editing the document, so it's really only for the final version.
    Hope this helps,
