The table-plus plug-in works well for sorting. It defines it on each column by default. It is easy to use, just surround your mark-up table with "{table-plus}" markers.

Should I create User Macros also? I need Table-plugin and macro - right?

How to configure macro in Confluence 4.0? Just adding "{table-plus}"?

I'm beginner, sry for simple question.

Well, now I have one more question

How to configure, that 10 / each columns will by sorted

You can use Table Filter add-on, it has an option to set default sorting order. Notice that you can export page to PDF/Word in a current sorted state.

First, you'll need to install the Table Plugin, then you'll be able to wrap your tables in the {table-plus} macro e.g.

produces:

Your example shows coulmn 3, not the all columns?

This macro sort dates like this:

<colgroup> <col style="width: 48pt;" width="64"/></colgroup>
1.sept
3.sept
4.sept
29.sept
29.aug
30.aug
31.aug

and another way round

<colgroup> <col style="width: 48pt;" width="64"/></colgroup>
31.aug
30.aug
29.aug
29.sept
4.sept
3.sept
1.sept

But is it possible to order by newest to oldest?

<colgroup> <col style="width: 48pt;" width="64"/></colgroup>
29.sept
4.sept
3.sept
1.sept
31.aug
30.aug
29.aug

and like this:

29.sept

29.aug

30. sept

30.aug

Thanks in advance!
