Changelog :

August 24, 2017 (15EC27) - Omer Atay
Added option to sort all sections in a notebook rather than just the current section group

May 23, 2017 (3853AA) - Omer Atay
Added ascending/descending options and updated to sort numerically if section names start with numbers like 1, 2 etc. This correctly puts a section named 10... after sections named 1... through 9...

June 20, 2016 (34ACAE) - Omer Atay
Re-written with the new Macro Language to take advantage of cleaner syntax and performance improvements

These versions are no longer supported:

I have a 'poetry' notebook. Each section is an author's name (first name, surname). Would it be possible to adapt this macro so that it sorts on the surname?

Olivia: It stores for pages but not for sections or notebooks

I had a similar question to Ellie's, but your answer to the first question puzzles me.
OneNote doesn't store original "created dates" - AT ALL?
That makes no sense, as the pages have "created dates".
I haven't even checked if that feature is even included for the notebooks, themselves.
Would that be included in a future update, I hope?
