    Hi @DebABCFL

    Welcome! We're glad you could join us in the Community!

    You can Sort a sheet by a specific column by hovering over the column name and clicking on the Column Menu (the three dots):

    You can also see the Column Menu by right-clicking on a column name. From this menu you'll see a "Sort Rows" option:

    This will allow you to organize your sheet by the Date column.


    Keep in mind that you cannot undo a Sort after the sheet is saved (you would need to then apply a different sort to reorganize your rows).

    Here's more information: Sort Rows to Organize Your Data

    Cheers,

    Hi @DebABCFL

    Would you be able to post a screen capture of what you're seeing (but please block out any sensitive data)?

    The first thing I'd check is to make sure you don't have a filter applied to your sheet. You won't be able to Sort rows if you're currently looking at it with a filter on.

    Let me know what you find out!
