Is there somewhere in this mystery cave called a computer that I can find a way to create a mish-mash list of names, push a button, and they will all be in alphabetical order? If not, are there any suggestions?
Using OS X 10.4.11

I don't have any suggestions on how to do that in Pages. I just saw a screencast on Circus Ponies' Notebook 3 and it has that exact feature. However, I wouldn't buy a program just to do that.

Do you have a spreadsheet program? If you do, you should be able to sort the data by last name if you either put the first and last names in separate cells or enter the data in "last, first" format.

Thanks, Bob. I'll try Numbers. But I may have found the solution by using the Address Book. I can set it up with the lines that accommodate the information I want to record. Then it can be alphabetized using First Name. So far it has created a logical list, but I haven't tried printing it out yet to see what it looks like on paper. After I do that then I'll have to set it up for email. What I'm trying to do is catalog a collection in order to provide information when I get ready to sell it. Something will work. Thanks again for your help.
