Auto Filter Won't Sort

Mar 18, 2007

For some reason I have a worksheet that won't sort stuff by Autofilter any more. I built it as a customer database but for some reason today I just can't get the names to ascend or descend. there is something simple I can check for, I can post an empety sheet if needed but right now I can't really post a list of all my customers info.

Sort / Filter Rows: Sort A Range Of Row

Nov 26, 2008

I would like to ask if it is possible to sort a range of row? What I mean is, if I sort like Row 1, the entire block of row 1 will move as well? Like if i have column A to F, then row 1 of column A to F will move together at the same time.

Filter Results Of Primary Filter Sort

Feb 11, 2008

I am in the process of making a database more efficient and am running into a problem with sorting data. I currently am trying to use AutoFilter to sort the data. When I want to then narrow the results further using the same column as the critical and there is nothing that matches the critical, I get everything from the entire database that matches that critical rather than what I want to see, which, in this case, would be nothing.

I have attached a sample file. In it, when All AF 1000 is run and then Selected MAC 2000 Wash is run, I want to see no results instead of seeing all MAC 2000 Washes from the original data set. I can do it using IF/THEN but I am looking for a faster way to do it.

Auto-Merge Dates In 3 Columns And Then Auto-sort Merged Columns

Jan 10, 2012

I have dates values in 3 columns.

A1 - Header - "Holidays in XXXX'
B1 - Header - "Holidays in YYYY'
C1 - Header - "Leaves by YOU"

A2:B11 have static dates consisting of 10 dates in each column.
C2:C11 - the user may enter any date at any point of time.

I would like to auto-merge the dates in all the 3 columns (A2:C11) in a single column say D2:D31 and then the system should auto-sort the column based on dates in any one order. So as soon as the user enters a value in say cell C2, all the 10+10+1 dates should get sorted.

Also the constraint here is a user may not apply all 10 leaves at in a year. So many of the cells may have blank values.

Can't Sort Or Filter

Apr 5, 2010

I have a worksheet of 10 Columns and over 5000 rows. The worksheet has the word {Group} in brackets after the file name. When I pasted this worksheet into an old file I have been using for a long time it added the word {Group} to this file also.

I am unable to use sort or filter on this worksheet as they are both grayed out.

With Sort And/or Filter

Jan 23, 2010

I have two columns of numbers. The first column is numbers of customers seeking specific products. The second column is of total competitors for the products. I am wanting to find a sort or filter that will show me the "sweet spot" where I can "weight" the best products that have greatest seekers but lowest competition.

Here are a few examples of what I am working with:

Product a - People seeking product: 167 / Competitors providing product: 5740
Product b - People seeking product: 111 / Competitors providing product: 133000
Product c - People seeking product: 74 / Competitors providing product: 105000
Product d - People seeking product: 60 / Competitors providing product: 109000
Product e - People seeking product: 33 / Competitors providing product: 22200

(I have many more products than this, this is only a small example)

So what my goal is is to run through all my data and find the most ideal products (the "sweet spot") that have greatest number of seekers/potential customers with the least competition.

Is there a way to sort this? Or do I use a filter of some type. My knowledge of Excel is pretty minimal.

VBA Macro To Filter And Sort

Aug 6, 2008

I'm tryin to set up a macro to filter and sort and when I record the macro correctly it does not run properly.

I have detailed info below:

I created a sheet "Met Logbook" which contains all links to the source "Master Logbook". This master logbook has a lot of info added daily and we add info at the top of the sheet (we insert new rows every time at the top for different reasons). So what happens is the master logbook always changes its cells (when inserting new rows at the top, all the cells change row number). So I have just linked all the cells and more that we may be using in the Met logbook. This is why I need to filter and then sort the Met logbook (since there will be so many blanks, unuseful info and in the wrong order). (It will be in the wrong order because the "master logbook" has newer info at the top and I have more than one sheet of info for the master logbook) (so my links in the met logbook are somewhat out of order).

So what I need is to have code to filter column B with:

and column H with "Blanks", then I need to sort column A (rec'd) in descending order (so that newer info will be at the top). I will post my Met Logbook sheet on my second post since its a little large.

Automatic Sort After Filter ...

Mar 21, 2007

I'm trying to write one macro that filters a set of data based on 2 criteria and then automatically sorts the filtered data by date. The filter works fine but when I then try to write code that handles the automatic sort, I get the following message when I run the macro: "Run-Time Error 1004: the sort reference is not valid. Make sure that it's within the data you want to sort, and the first Sort By box isn't the same or blank."

I realize it would only take one or two more clicks to sort this data manully after the macro is run, but the lazy person in me is trying to eliminate this step. Does anybody have any suggestions as to why the sort is not working? I parsed basic sorting code, but it hasn't worked. The other part of this that is causing me trouble is that the number of filtered rows will vary, so I'm only needing to sort the visible range.

Auto Sort

Jul 20, 2009

I am trying to figure out how to auto sort information on a spreadsheet so that when update notes are added by date at the bottom of the list, they are automatically sorted (moved) to the top of the list so the latest update is shown first. I am pretty clueless when it comes to macros although I have given it some attempts after reading other posts without success. I am including a copy of the spreadsheet. The info that I need sorted starts at B43:E43 and goes to B104:E104. That same sort info would then be used for the similar info to the right of this one. For example everything on the line B43:E43 would move together.

How To Sort And Filter By Greatest Change In Percentage

Dec 1, 2013

In the first picture the Pivot Table is showing the profit of each city in 2010 and 2012. Where I used Sort & Filter Largest to smallest, in order to display the cities with greatest profit.

Prosent.png

But when I switch the values to `% of` year (Previous). I get the change from 2010 to 2012 in percentage. But my PROBLEM is when I want to Sort & Filter from Largest to Smallest, cause I want to show the cities that have had the greatest percentage change from 2010 to 2012. But the I only get the same cities, and when I look at ex. 'Gjovik' is has had a 125 % in change and should be in the top.

So how am I able to Sort & Filter from Largest to Smallest the cities with greatest change in percentage?

How To Auto Sort A Spreadsheet

Jul 25, 2013

I'm trying to learn how to do auto sort. I Know how to do the custom manual sort but it is taking to long to do my spreadsheet every night. I love to play the greyhounds but to manually sort 18 columns a race with 15 races each night takes a while there has to be a easier way.

here a sample of what I'm trying to do. The columns are in two C-D E-F G-H I-J and so on. The rows here are 7-14 as you see I have to sort some high and some low. Is this possible to do a auto sort for each set of columns

C---- D----------E------F--------G------H--------I------J
BEST-------------AVG-------------EARLY-----------LATE
SPEED-----------SPEED------------SPEED----------SPEED
BOX--LOW-------BOX--LOW------BOX----HIGH------BOX--HIGH
1----31.3-------1----31.47----- 1-----87.55------1-------0
2----31.2-------2-----31.69------2---- 51.53------2-----(-1
3----31.85------3-----31.95------3-------0--------3-------0

Auto Sort Of Data

Apr 1, 2009

As you can see from the attached spreadsheet. I have a page called Pattern Etch where we enter the data for all the processing done in a single machine.
Each device type is slightly different, and therefore has a different calculation fasctor for its etch time. This all weorks fine. What I had previously was another spreadsheet with the pages b and g in it. This is where the factors are calculated and updated from.

I'd like to make this update automatic, and suspect the easiest way is to combine the two spreadsheets, as in the attached version. Can the sorting of the data from the patternetch page to the apprpriate pages, b and g be done automatically? If so can it be done for many pages as I have cut down the spreadsheet, I actually have 50 variants, each will need its own page (as for b and g).

VBA Auto Sort The Column

Feb 9, 2007

I have the below small code which auto sorts information in column A & B but I am having trouble trying to get it to sort from row 3 and not sort the first 2 rows. The first row is the column header the second row I want left blank and then sort after that.

Plus at the moment after I enter something into column A it auto sorts itself but what I would really like to do is have it commence the auto sort after I have entered information in column B and pressed "enter". Because at the moment I enter info in column A then it auto sorts itself then I must then find it and then enter the info into column B.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rg As Range
Set rg = Columns("A") 'Column containing names to sort
If Intersect(Target, rg) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Range("A:B").Sort key1:=rg.Cells(1, 1), order1:=xlAscending, header:=xlGuess

Auto-sort In Worksheet

Mar 12, 2007

I have a worksheet in Excel which contains scores for a quiz I am organizing. The rows contain the team names, the columns the scores per round per team.
I would like to have the worksheet automatically sort the columns in descending order (so that the winner will come out on top after the quiz has finished), everytime I change something (everytime a score is updated). I can't find anything in Excel which would allow me to do that, so I'm guessing it's only possible in VBA? Unfortunately, I don't know anything about VBA, so I'm stuck.

These are the ranges I would like to have sorted, in order of priority:

Row 1 is the row with the column titles (Round 1, Round 2,...).
C2: C26
N2:N26
M2:M26
L2:L26
K2:K26
J2:J26
I2:I26
H2:H26
G2:G26
F2:F26
E2:E26
D2:D26

Auto Sort Set Range

Mar 11, 2009

I know that I could just click sort, decending, "points" etc but I figure there must be a way of it auto updating.....

Please see the attached file - I have attempted doing it with Ranking Formula but forgot that it would just give me error messages when two have the same points so I got rid of that.

Have tried doing it with other formula found on this website and others, however I appear to be stuck. I might be doing it wrong but as I'm not manually putting in the "points", they are being worked out with =( SUMPRODUCT((H4:H16={"W","D","L"})*({3,1,0}))+58) for example, it does not move their position.

What I would like it to do:

1. People select from drop down list whether they think the team will W, D, L
2. The Table to the right should automatically change the points dependant on the result
3. The Teams position should change automatically in line with their new points total.

Auto Filter On Selected Row

Dec 3, 2009

After posting a thread regarding sorting issues with multiple columns (under the thread heading "Bulk Sorting" I have conceded that unless I have a sort filter on every column I will not be able to keep data in respective rows when sorting.
My new plan of attack is to insert an empty row (it will be row 13) and apply auto filter across every column (not what I wanted visually but no other option).

Is there a way that I can do this at row 13 on an almost completed sheet? I may just be dumb but I can't stop the filter applying itself to row 1. If I select the whole of row 13 the auto filter or "right click - apply filter" options aren't available. If not I could start a fresh sheet. Is there a way to copy and paste a large amount of cells with different width columns into a new worksheet?

Filter & Sort Multiple Columns With Single Criteria

Sep 27, 2008

I have a spreadsheet with multiple columns. The first column defines a "route", and the next two list "start" and "end" cities for that route. The fourth column lists the length of each route. There are only a limited number of cities, so the same entries appear in both "start" and "end" several times. I would like to use Autofilter to sort the list for every appearance of a given entry in either "start" or "end". Is there a way to make Autofilter sort mutiple columns simultaneously?

I could achieve the desired end result with Advanced Filter, but I want something with the ease-of-use and immediate update/response of Autofilter. Advanced Filter requires explanation (as well as lots of clicking and typing) whereas Autofilter is self-evident. I also want to avoid VBA Macros as they are not well-understood by the users who will use this spreadsheet (and any VBA Macro will require very specific input to work properly.) Is it possible to do what I want? Or is Advanced Filter / VBA the only way to do it?
