Sort addresses by street name in Excel, you need to create a help column first.

1. Select a blank cell adjacent to the address list, and type this formula =MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,255) (A1 is the cell of your address list), and press Enter button, then drag the fill handle to fill the range you want. After that, you can see all addresses are extracted to the help column except the street numbers.

2. Then select the help column range, and click Data > Sort A to Z. See screenshot:

3. In the Sort Waning dialog box, check Expand the selection. See screenshot:

4. Click Sort, you can see the addresses are sorted.

If the addresses are with the same street, and you want to sort them by the street number, you can do as these:

1. Select a blank cell which is adjacent to the address list, and type this formula =VALUE(LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1)-1)) (A1 is the first cell of your address list), and press Enter button, then drag the fill handle to fill the range you want. After that, you can see only the street numbers are extracted to the help column.

2. Then select the help column range, and click Data > Sort A to Z. See screenshot:

3. In the Sort Waning dialog box, check Expand the selection. See screenshot:

4. Click Sort, you can see the addresses are sorted.

Tip: You also can use this formula =LEFT(A1,FIND( " ",A1)-1), too.

Note: This method also can work when the streets in the addresses are different.

    Hi, I have been looking for this solution for ages. Thank you!! However I have discovered another issue. I have data within the address column that doesn't have a street number associated with it.
    Example
    Anns Road SHEFFIELD South Yorkshire S2 3DJ
    becomes
    Road SHEFFIELD South Yorkshire S2 3DJ

    Is there a solution??
