Sort Combo Box By Ascending Order

I am trying to sort a combo box by ascending order...this combo box displays 2 columns of data which are populated from a spreadsheet. I would like to sort by the first column in the combo box which is numeric, but I do not want to sort the actual data on the spreadsheet.

Sort Command - Custom Order Or Sort Ascending Or Descending
Is it possible to make excel sort ascending or descending but from mid way through alphabet and then loop through the alphabet again. for example. If Cell A1 had "A" in, it would sort as normal.

Cell A1 = A
Cell A2 = B
Cell A3 = C
Cell A4 = D
Cell A5 = E

If Cell A1 had "C" in, it would sort from "C" through the alphabet and then loop to the start of the alphabet as shown below.

Cell A1 = C
Cell A2 = D
Cell A3 = E
Cell A4 = A
Cell A5 = B

Dropdown Box To Change Sort Order
I am trying to do 2 things.

- Sort by date
- Sort by Customer
- Sort by priority level

Once they select a view, it will then sort the rows to that view.

2) I want to do a filter box, so if I type a cutomers name, it will filter to only show the rows related ot that customer.

Ranked Unique And In Ascending Order
1) List of 500 employees, each allocated an account number where the payroll should be applied, in cells N1 through to N500.

2) Account numbers contain many uniques, ie employees within same department / function

3) require a list of unique account numbers, ranked in ascending order with the budget value, in rows O510 through to Oxxx (depending on how many unique account numbers exist)

4) this happens for 4 companies over 20 spreadsheet tabs for each company for each type of employment cost (each tab has different account numbers)

I know I can do this by manually copying the account numbers to another tab, sort them, remove uniques and then copy the result back o the summary area, for sumif formula, but was hoping for something a little more 'automatic', as these spreadsheets will be provided to payroll staff in each company for completion.

VBA Re-organise A Table In Ascending Order
I need now is to provide a separate filtered list to the side (Starting from column M.

In the quickest way possible (as the data is going to stretch to 2-3 thousand rows I suspect :s), I need to, after selecting a track of interest using a list box on the sheet (Eg Brands Hatch), and a season (eg 2006, 2007, 2008 etc or ALL), and a race class (Eg A, B, C or ALL), have a macro display the data matching the selected criteria to the left of my data from column M1. This needs to be ordered with the smallest lap times (from column F) at the top...

The idea is that I can select a track, and some filter data and display a history of the fastest recorded laps at that circuit from the long list of data I have. I can't use the filter function within Excel as I'm going to need to generate and copy this data for export to an output file later on.

Is it possible to allow Autofilter but disallow Sort Ascending/ Descending for an excel list in sheet? I have data set up as an Excel List (Excel 2003, with Autofilter turned on) so all formulas, formatting etc copy down when a new row of data is added, however if I just Protect worksheet and disallow Sorting, the List features don't work. I also tried putting the following in the Worksheet Activate event

ActiveSheet.Protect AllowSorting:=False

But this doesn't seem to disable the Sort option in the Autofilter, only the Data Sort function.

Sort Ascending/Descending Based On Criteria
I have an Overview worksheet that is pulling info from all other sheets in the workbook.

What I want to do is order that info in ascending order depending on the worksheet name.

So I want all the worksheet names that start with 'AB' say sorted in ascending order and all worksheets that start with 'BC' in ascending order.

Now this I have at present working by a macro I created which once the info is loaded onto the sheet I just selected the info and ordered it in ascending order. The thing is though the next time I enter this Overview sheet I might have an extra worksheet that starts with 'AB' and this will not be included in the order, I will have to adjust it everytime so I need a more automatic ordering process.

Months To Be Sorted In Ascending Order In Pivot Table, Want To Use Multiple Colors In Pivot Charts
My input data for Pivot table has a column named "Month". The month values are like April 07, April 08, Nov07 in random order for period between Jan 07 to Aug 08.

When I create a pivot Table, this column is sorted alphabetically (April 07 is followed by April 08) but I need it to be sorted in the ascending order with respect to month (April 07 is followed by May 07).

I further use this data to plot a Pivot Chart. There is another issue here. I want to use separate colors for each series. I do not know how to achieve above 2 things.

Lookup Multiple Same Value And Return Multiple Corresponding Value In Ascending Order
I have a problem with the formula that look up multiple records with the same values and return multiple corresponding values in ascending order. I am using Excel 2003 and it is a bit complicated to explain so I have attached a sample spreadsheet to show what I mean.

What I want was after I have sorted the occurrence value in column E based on column B and I want to correspond the Rank in column D based on column A in ascending order for the same occurrence value in column E.

Eg: There is two occurrences for number 1 at E3 and E4, and three occurrences for number 2 at E5, E6 and E7 in column E. Then the Rank for the first occurrence for number 1 in D3 should be ranking 6 and the second occurrence for number 1 in D4 should be ranking 7, so the Rank for the first occurrence for number 2 in D5 should be ranking 3, D6 should be ranking 4 and D7 should be ranking 9 based on column A and B, etc.

Weird(?) Sort Order
I have a client with a list of books, and they are trying to sort a column in a sheet that has LC classification codes. When just doing a normal A-Z sort, it looks like this:

RJ 41 .D53 F54 2005
RJ 416 .L4 C52 1999
RJ 420 .D5T97 2003
RJ 421 .H385 2006
RJ 426 .H43 P43 2005
RJ 431 .M37 2003
RJ 436 .A8 R33 2006
RJ 436 .A8 T498 2001
RJ 436 .A8 T87 2003
RJ 45 .N4 2000
RJ 45 .N418 2006
RJ 45 .R92 1998
RJ 47 .E39 2001
RJ 48 .H37 2000
RJ 48 .H37 2002
RJ 48.2 .C537 2004
RJ 48.2 .P347 2005
RJ 48.2 .P385 2005
RJ 48.2 .R93 2003
RJ 480 .P34 2005
RJ 482 .R48 L448 2004
RJ 486 .C45 2000

What is weird about it is that I would think that the numbers after the RJ would be in numeric order but it seems to be treating them as codes. So, instead of RJ 41, then RJ 45, it goes on with a series of things that start with RJ 41. Is it normal for this to happen, or is there a way to change it so that it goes 41, 45, 47, 48, then 416, 420, etc.

Custom Sort Order
I feel I've searched thoroughly and wasn't able to find the right answer. I've attached a daily report example that needs the "Product" field to be sorted in a particular order. The order should be JEX, Q3791J, YOO5, KLX9, GHT (all similar products need to be grouped together).

Since the report is run daily the number of rows changes daily: one day can have 50 entries and the next 10. Is there a way to dictate the sort order and insert a blank row between each product grouping?

Once the Products have been separated into their groups, how would I sort each grouping by the "Term" column?

Sort Order And Text ..
I'm sure this has been asked many times before, but I can't seem to find an answer that works for my data. I have some data that is sorted by an ordered list (like a table of contents from an overly detailed book):


This list can be arbitrarily deep (although probably not more than ##.##.##.##), and because I'm using periods to separate the nested levels (can be changed), I've formatted it as text. This means when I sort the data using this column I get 1.11 before 1.2 (text sort order).

After lots of failed formula attempts I've resorted to using an additional column with hand-entered values to sort by so it will sort correctly:


but I'm hoping someone knows a more elegant way to do this, or at least to generate this column without typing so many zeroes!

Automatically Sort In Descending Order
I'm using a table with columns from A to F and an unlimited number of rows. Note that there is a title at the top of each column.
-I'd like my datas in column F to be automatically sorted in descending order from top to bottom when I hit the enter key or when the number is entered in last column (column F).
-the the entire row of data needs to be sorted according to the sorting criteria of column F ( datas entered need to stay on the same row)
-the macro should validate that the number value entered in column F is the same as the number value entered in column A. (to make sure that there was no typing mistake)
-Result in column D must be the difference between the corresponding value in column B and C (B-C=D)
*The next couple of constraints are not absolutely required, i'd like to have them only if it's possible to add constraints with filling color:
-Whenever there is no value entered in column C on a specific row I'd like the entire row to be colored in yellow (fill color)
-IF a number is entered in column C, and that the result of B-C in column D is not equal to zero, I'd like this specific row to be filled in Red.
-when all the values are entered in a row from column A to F and that the result of B minus C is equal to Zero in column D, i'd like this specific row to be filled in a green color.
***in other words, the datas in each rows from column A to F will be entered on 2 occasions; on the first time, only the datas in column A,B and F will be entered (so basically after entering this set of values the row should be filled in yellow. the second time, the remaining values will be added to the rows, so at this time A,B,C,D,E and F will all be entered. when this is done there will be two options
1-the value in column D is equal to Zero then the entire row should be filled in green or
2-the value in column D is'nt equal to zero, then this specific row should be filled in red.

Keep in mind that the datas of a row should be automatically sorted only when the value in column F is entered or when the enter key is hitted to add a new row.

Macro To Sort Rows By Date Order
Starting at E8 and going down the E column there is a list of non sequential dates that could potentially be very small or extremely large. These dates must be sorted in ascending order together with all the data in their respective rows so for example

John Ball 20/2/07
Mark Dunn 19/2/07
Tim Jones 18/2/07

should be sorted as

Tim Jones 18/2/07
Mark Dunn 19/2/07
John Ball 20/2/07

If anyone can write such a piece of code it'd be very time saving.
