sorting to start after a specific word
I have a master sheet for our school library that looks like this  Ex:         1:  Hanndler                        
                                                                                                         2:  Hbnndler                
                                                                                                         3:  Retro"s Hanndler              
                                                                                                         4:  Retro"s THanndler             
                                                                                                         5:  Retro"s THbnndler
                                                                                                         6:  The R' Hbnndler
                                                                                                         7:  Retro"s Hbnndler 
                                                                                                         8:  The R' Hcnndler 

All these books have to go onto a sheet labeled H. Now thanx to the forum I have been able to construct a query that will pull all the books onto sheet H but i want to be able to sort them by the first letter after H in order that book #2 the first book that starts with Hb should be right after book #4 which is the last of the Ha
