Easy way of Alphabetizing Salesforce Picklist Values

Scenario:
the business needed to see the picklist values in alphabetically. But there were so many values about 100 of them.

Solution:
Standard Object:
    Go to Setup | App Setup |  Customize | The standard Object | Fields | The Picklist or Multi-select Picklist Field
Custom Object:
    Go to Setup | App Setup |  Create | Object | Fields | The Picklist or Multi-select Picklist Field

Click Reorder button on the Picklist Field under the Picklist Values Section

You shall see a checkbox there "Sort values alphabetically, not in the order entered. Values will be displayed alphabetically everywhere." Then click Save.


Click on it and it shall place the values for you in alphabetical order.


Thanks
Hope this helps
