Default Sorting by number

If I number a long column of cells by clicking the numbering function, I am
unable to sort the cells by those automatically inserted numbers.

I'm trying to reverse the order of the cells displayed by my table.

For instance I have a table of daily data. I want to use the numbering
function to identify the cells and then reverse the order in which they are
displayed by sorting them in descending order (from the highest or last
number to the first) But Word won't sort numbers I assign to the column of
data.

If, however, I manually number an empty column one cell at a time, Word will
sort the column (and each row of cells associated with it) by number. But
that process is much too slow.
