[jaws-uk] Re: Andrew and automatic alphabetical lists

For my disertation, I had 12 pages of references.  I made sure each was in a 
single paragraph and used Sort in the Tables menu to alphabetise them all. 
It worked a treat.

Regards

Barry

Hi Barry:

That is most kind. I shall try that with my dissertation. The problem is
that it is 17000 words long and it has loads of things. It was taking me
ages but I shall try your suggestion. You are wonderful, I bet I can hand it
in time now :-)

cheers, Andrew.
