How to disable sorting tables

For many tables I create, such as process descriptions, it makes no sense to sort tables. However, there seems to be no way to disable the sorting functionality.

Why is this a problem? If the person viewing my page accidentally clicks on a column header, the table is sorted and the user's screwed UNLESS I add a number column to every table.

I don't think there is an easy way, but I did find a solution:

Add a new column and merge all the cells with an adjacent column.

A quicker (but less appealing) method is to simply add a new top row and merge all its cells.

Thanks, adding a column and merging cells did work smile

Wrap the table with the Table Plus Macro and un-select the Enable column sorting parameter.
