    Word97 Sorting Dates

    I'm trying to sort dates in a Word97 table column. It won't sort chronologically. The dates are formatted 01/01/01. It sorts 01/01/01, 01/01/02, 02/02/01, 02/02/02. I selected the column containing the dates and specified "date" as the type of sort I wanted. This document is 200+ pages long. What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions appreciated.

    Re: Word97 Sorting Dates

    Under Table, Sort, press the Options button, and check what is selected under Sorting Language. Select the proper language.

    You may have to enable the language first. To do so, on the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Office Tools, and then click Microsoft Office Language Settings
