I have a Google Spreadsheet that is published to the web and embedded in a website. This spreadsheet has data about hotel rooms, such as hotel name, number of rooms, date in and out, etc.

I would like to know if there is a way to allow the user to sort the data by any of the columns (sort by hotel name OR number of stars OR minimum nights, etc.).

I found an app that will pull the data and allow the user to filter it, hiding the data that doesn't match their query. I need to achieve something similar but with sorting, not filtering.

Here is the filtering app: googlesystem.blogspot.mx/2007/07/… – Palmer Del Campo Feb 22 '13 at 14:52
did you find any suitable solution? The suggested app does not really work for me... – Daniele B May 8 '13 at 14:39
No, I switched to a completely different approach. Now I have the data in a local database and display it in the frontend as a table. Then I use a script called tablesort.js that makes any html table sortable. – Palmer Del Campo May 8 '13 at 18:36
Excel Online supports this functionality. – W1M0R Jun 10 at 9:13
