Excel sorting by similar name

I m a beginner to Uipath.
I have an excel file and want to sort the data by grouping similar data together.
EG: Fruit Apple
Furniture Table
Fruit Mango
Furniture Chair
Stationary Pen
Fruit Gauva
Stationary Pensil

I want to sort the excel by grouping the data as follows:

 Fruit              Apple
 Fruit              Mango
 Fruit              Gauva
 Furniture       Table
 Furniture        Chair
 Stationary       Pen
 Stationary       Pensil

Thanks in advance.

1.) Read the data into a datatable variable using a Read Range activity.
2.) Use a Sort Datatable activity to sort by the first column (you can use the column name in quotes or the number 0 without quotes).
3.) Use Write Range to write the datatable to a spreadsheet.

Joyeux automation! :blush:
