Excel/macro for sorting sheet without sorting frozen rows
I am referring to this question that was asked of you:
Excel/Sorting Macro for Excel sheet with frozen cells
Expert: Aidan Heritage - 11/5/2007
This question is exactly what I'm trying to do, but i do not speak in macro's- my excel level is very low. i recently took a macro class that involved editing the macro's; which is what i think you're referring to.
I am trying to put buttons on a spreadsheet for co-workers with way less excel skills than me to sort by certain criteria.
But, I want the first 4 rows to be omitted from the sort because it is the heading and categories and macro buttons. So i want everything on the sheet to sort starting on row 5. this is also a sheet that rows are being added to, so i want to make sure that future additions will be sorted as well.
Can you help me with this?
that answer looks valid for you as well -
Range("A5:H" & WorksheetFunction.CountA(Range("A:A"))).Select
was a selection of cells from a5 to H whatever - I'd PROBABLY now suggest
Range("A5:H" & ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count).select
As the sorting part can take the range something like
.SetRange Range("A5:H" & ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count)
.Header = xlNo
.MatchCase = False
.Orientation = xlTopToBottom
.SortMethod = xlPinYin
would do it
