In this article, we will describe how to reorder worksheets in Google Sheets.
There are two ways to change the order of sheets in Google Sheets.
The first approach is to change the order of adjacent sheets.
The second way is more flexible and helpful when you have more than a couple of sheets.
You can change the location of adjacent tabs at a time.
Unfortunately, with the default setting of Google Sheets, you can’t sort a tab in alphabetical order. We suggest you move a worksheet to the proper position every time you insert it. If each worksheet contains a relatively small amount of information and data, you can consider gathering information in a sheet and sorting the information in alphabetical order there.
As the same as above, you need to reverse the order of sheets manually. It depends on how many sheets you have in a Google Sheets file, but unless you have too many sheets (e.g., 50), it is still manageable to reverse the order of sheets manually, as what you need to do is relatively simple. For instance, you can move the rightmost sheet next to the leftmost one to the left and then bring the rightmost one (initially the second one from the right) next to the leftmost one (originally the rightmost one) to the right.
As we explained, there is no way to sort tabs with default functions in Google Sheets. Thus, it is essential to reduce the number of times you change the location of sheets in the first place.
These three articles are helpful if you are a beginner and need to learn how to insert and remove a tab or move to a different worksheet in a file.
The following three articles are beneficial when you have many worksheets in a file and want to make them neat or highlight specific tabs.
