Yes, I know about the */B* switch, but the goal is also to automatically
eliminate the summary lines, too, of which there will be *many*. I was not
ever thinking about doing a line sort in Excel, either, as that would
dramatically alter the result I'm seeking.

I'm not an Excel macro guru, have no interest in becoming one, and was
looking for a quick and dirty CMD line solution.

Thanks, though.
