When using a numbered list in Word, how can I have it order in descending order (ie. 10., 9., 8., 7., ...) ?

  • Highlight the text you wish to sort
  • Click 'table' on the top of the screen
  • Click 'sort' in the dropdown menu
  • Under 'sort by', set the parameters to 'paragraphs', 'numbers', and 'descending'
  • Click OK....

You should be descending now.
