That is why it is always good to have your table data sorted in a specific order before going through it.

In the open slide, “Right Click” on the table. Then click on the “Cut” option from the right-click menu. Alternatively, you can press the “Ctrl+X” keys on your keyboard to cut the table.

Step-2:

In the Excel worksheet, “Right Click” anywhere and click on the “Use Destination Theme” option under “Paste Options”.

Step-3:

Click on the “Sort and Filter” option from the “Editing” group of the “Home” tab. In the dropdown menu, click on the “Custom Sort” option to launch a dialog box.

Step-4:

In the “Sort” dialog box, you can now sort the table data according to your preference. Then click on the “OK” button at the bottom of the dialog box.

Step-5:

Now you have to copy the table again. To do so, “Right Click” on the table and click on the “Copy” option.

Step-6:

Finally, all you have to do is “Right Click” in the PowerPoint slide and click on the “Paste” option from the right-click menu to paste the table with sorted data.
