RAT-A-PHOOEY overlooks alternate solution

The RAT-A-PHOOEY quest to sort data in Excel doesn't accept data/sort as a correct solution to the task of sorting the table. While I appreciate finding another way to complete the same task, I have long used the keyboard commands to sort data and it is a perfectly legitimate way to complete the task.

Thank you for reporting this. There are sometimes multiple ways to do the same thing in all applications. Sorting is one of them. Unfortunately, we did not catch the RAT-A-PHOOEY issue before releasing but we are aware of the issue.

I think that the purpose of Ribbon Hero 2 is to help ensure that the user is introduced to, and becomes proficient in using the Ribbon Controls. If keyboard short-cuts or menu options (through keyboard accelerators) were to be the accepted answers, then you would not be playing a game called Ribbon Hero. Instead, it would probably be Office Hero or something!

Perhaps, but one should never feel that the game isn't acknowledging the obviously working solution. A quick notice of "Right, that's another way to do it. But how about doing it like this?".
