Sorts first by uppercase letters and then by lowercase letters. For Asian languages, special handling applies.
For Asian languages: Check Case Sensitive to apply multi-level collation. With multi-level collation, entries are first compared in their primitive forms with their cases and diacritics ignored. If they evaluate as the same, their diacritics are taken into account for the second-level comparison. If they still evaluate as the same, their cases, character widths, and Japanese Kana difference are considered for the third-level comparison.

Natural sort is a sort algorithm that sorts string-prefixed numbers based on the value of the numerical element in each sorted number, instead of the traditional way of sorting them as ordinary strings. For instance, let's assume you have a series of values such as, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, ..., A19, A20, A21. When you put these values into a range of cells and run the sort, it will become A1, A11, A12, A13, ..., A19, A2, A20, A21, A3, A4, A5, ..., A9. While this sorting behavior may make sense to those who understand the underlying sorting mechanism, to the rest of the population it seems completely bizarre, if not outright inconvenient. With the natural sort feature enabled, values such as the ones in the above example get sorted "properly", which improves the convenience of sorting operations in general.
Range boundary columns (for sorting rows) or boundary rows (for sorting columns) of a sorting range are not sorted by default if they are empty. Check this option if boundary columns or boundary rows containing comments are also to be sorted.
Border columns (for sorting rows) or border rows (for sorting columns) of a sorting area are not sorted by default if they are empty. Check this option if boundary columns or boundary rows containing images are also to be sorted.
