Google Docs is a powerful online productivity suite that provides users with the ability to create documents, spreadsheets and presentations using only the Web. Without a program disk or files saved on your hard drive, Google Docs allows you to access your information from anywhere. When you open a spreadsheet in Google Docs, you can tweak the document in much the same way as you could using a productivity software program. It even includes the ability to sort columns of information based on a variety of criteria. If you have a Google Spreadsheet and want to sort it, use the Data button.
