When your data is unsorted, finding the information you need cannot be easy. Excel offers several sorting options to help you organize your data. Here are the steps to follow to unsort your data in Excel:

Step 2: Press the keyboard shortcut Alt+H+S+U. Then open a shorter window.
Step 3: Here, you can shorten your data by Country. Select the Country option and click OK.

Here the column is full of data.
Now select the three columns and press again keyboard shortcut Alt+H+S+U.
After opening the Sort window, select the country option. And click OK.
