Sorting tables in Writer with a header row [closed]

Okay, so. I have a list of songs I'm working with that I periodically add to, and am entering data about them. I sort them around a lot by various fields. Having just switched to LibreOffice, the issue I'm running into is that there does not seem to be a way to set the top row as a header row, and as such the names for each field just get jumbled in with the data. Is there a way to set header rows, or otherwise not have the top row sorted in with the rest? I would just highlight all rows except for the top and sort them from there, but the document is quite literally over 30 pages long, so that's pretty unreasonable.

Just make first N heading rows to repeat across pages - use table properties (Text flow tab) for that.
