    Word 2013 Alphabetical help needed


    I have a long alphabetical list of words straight down the page and they are 1 word per line.

    I'd like to keep the alphabetical order but sort in groups by first letter with 5 spaces between each.

    The list is too long to click in front of each word, backspace & tab. This is how I want it to appear

    apple attire atom

    cab cat cage camel cart

    deep deer

    instead of:


    apple

    attire

    atom

    cab

    cat

    cage

    camel

    cart

    deep

    deer

    Sesame Script didn't seem to have what I needed.

    I found this remedy and posting it in case somebody else needs the solution. Or I need it again.

    Replace each paragraph break (^p) with a comma and a space using the Find
    and Replace dialog.
    how do I make a vertical list horizontal?



    In the "Find what" box, type ^# to remove all numbers.
