What view are you looking at this data in? Table,deck,detail,form?
Have you learned about UX-> Format Rules, yet?
If you need a field to show up in a different order in a form view, you need to create a slice, there is no other way to rearrange column order for form views except for changing the spreadsheet.
I often create slices, for a many-column table, that only show a handful of columns, for the purpose of inputting only a handful of data points on an existing record. And I typically create an action button to forward the user to that specific form, use Linktorow().
