I have a couple of excel spreadsheets with Hebrew in them.  Each file has like 6 columns of data.  The Hebrew word, the plural form, the unit it is found, the part of speech, and the "translation".  Is there a way to sort the vocabulary.  I am able to sort the file by unit or part of speech no problem....how about the Hebrew I would not care about the vowel pointing's.

I am guessing since no response here...this task is not possible.

 

  I am guessing without a Hebrew computer system this kind of sorting is not possible.

I have been running this through my head and am thinking there is a way that I might make something work.  It will be a work around...but it might help.

I don't know a way of doing what you want but I am interested if you discover something that might work.

Since no one was able to help....I just thought about the filter tool in Excel.  It only works with no blanks in the file but with a vocab list that will not happen. 

Anyway I added a column to my vocabulary list and I just added an (a) for any word that started with alef, and if there was a bunch of them added an (am) for the second half of the words. 

I have clipped a little file for an example.  open the spreadsheet then click the filter tool and select unit 1 unclick all others.....then only those records with unit 1  will be shown. 

 

2352.example.xls

Maybe it wont show my file.  just put a filter to show words as they come in the order you want.  Just send a note if you need a bit more info on this method

Thanks. I think that I understand your workaround. I see why you would like to do a similar thing in Logos. Hope it works for you.
