VBA Auto Sort The Column

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
End Sub

Auto Sort Macro On Column Changes
How would you right code to automatically sort (using the same sort parameters all the time) when the value of a column changes?

Here's the scenario:
Columns B through N are populated.

The sort parameters are (in order) column F ascending, column D ascending and then column B ascending. The sort in column F is based on a custom list (but I doubt that matters here).

As far as the number of rows to select, it varies but there is always a blank row at the bottom of the selection.

What I am looking for is code that will sort the selection (currently its B4 through N37) in the above order automatically when the value in any of the selected rows changes in column F.

Auto Sort
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.

Auto-sort In Worksheet
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

Auto Sort Set Range
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 Sort Of Data
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).

Auto Sort A List By Values
Is there a way in Excel to have a list of names with values automatically re-sort whenever any of the values change.

The default sort I have in mind is ascending by values.


Sydney 100
Boston 200
London 300
Moscow 400
Houston 500

The values change to:

Sydney 5000
Boston 250
London 8000
Moscow 300
Houston 50

I now want Houston 1st, Boston 2nd etc - automatically - without me having to do a sort again by Value.

Auto Sort Table Without Macros
Saw quite a few threads on auto sorting but nothing that solves my problem: Sheet 1 has two columns, column A has names and column B has numbers. These numbers are manually entered, and there are duplicate values.

Sheet 2 has to present the same names and numbers in ascending sort order. I cannot use macros due to security restrictions. I can accomplish it using a combination of functions LARGE and INDEX, if the values are not duplicated. But that technique fails when there are duplicate values.

In other words, Sheet 1 has:

Bob 5
Joe 2
John 5
Sue 3

and Sheet 2 should auto sort these values and give us:

Joe 2
Sue 3
John 5
Bob 5

Auto Sort Table Upon Update Of Another Cells
I'm using a total of 20 Rows and 2 Columns. Each row has Column A for Description and Column B for Score. There are total 10 subjects with 10 noneditable rows, and 10 editable rows.

I'd like to protect column A and B for rows 1 to 10 and unprotect only Column B for rows 11 to 20. When any cells from Column B, rows 11 to 20 updates, I'd like to automatically sort columns A+B for ONLY rows 1 to 10.

Therefore, rows 1 to 10 need to be sorted based on the scores on Column B, and since rows 11 to 20 are just input fields, they are never to be sorted.

Column B for Rows 1-10 will be formulas and are based on Column B values from rows 11-20.

When a value in any of the rows 11-20 of Column B is updated, Range A1:B10 will automatically sort from highest score to lowest score (Column B).

Since Column B for rows 1 to 10 contains formulas and not actual values, would it throw off the order of things when sorting formulas?

the macro coding to perform this task.

Here is just a visual of what the spreadsheet will look like

....A B
1||A (B11)
2||B (B12)
3||C (B13)
4||D (B14)
5||E (B15)
6||F (B16)
7||G (B17)
8||H (B18)
9||I (B19)
10||J (B20)
11||A 10
12||B 9
13||C 8
14||D 7
15||E 6
16||F 5
17||G 4
18||H 3
19||I 2
20||J 1

The Bold are editable fields. and I want to use auto sort A1:B10 based on updated values of B11 to B20.

I have also attached the basic excel file that situates my concern.

Auto Find/Replace And Marco Sort
I'm looking for is something that searches all worksheets in the work book for occurances of A1 (shovel) and replace it with A2 (spades). The list will be about 100 cells long and the idea would be that I could copy a sheet called "replace" with this list in, run it and standardise all the terms in the list within that workbook. Does it sound feasable?

The other query I'm not sure can be done. When I've tidied all these 'names' to a standard one, I want to sort the data (sometimes rows, sometimes columns) alphabeticalled for instance by the A1 to A10, or by A1 to Z1. Simply using the sort option loses all the references as is doesnt change any cells linked to that cell. The only way I could think to make keep the other cells pointing to where they should is to cut and paste/each row/column in alphabetical order manually.

Sort By Definition? And Auto-fill Lists?
I update a daily incident report that is sorted by priority of the request as well as the date/time. In the past, I've recorded and run macro's to add a number to a priority so that it can sort numerically. Lately I've been tasked with building similar functionality into more reports. I am wondering whether I can tell Excel what order to sort items into (ie "Sort by HIGH, then MEDIUM-HIGH, then MEDIUM, then LOW)?

With regards to auto-fill lists (for want of the proper name), I report on multiple IT systems that fall into six "system" categories. Is there a way I can set up the "System" column to automatically update the correct data once the IT service is entered, rather than manually look up systems category then click the relevant system in the drop down box?

Multiple Date Column To Single Column & Sort
I'm looking for a way to sort dates from several columns into a new single column (perhaps multiple columns if the entry columns become too numerous). I've included an example. There are currently only 4 columns, but there may be as many as 20 in the future, each with 20 dates under each heading. Any blank cells would be eliminated. If I filled a blank with a new date, that date would be placed into the chronological column. So basically, this would take the date from several different categories and create a single calendar of events.

Sort In VLOOKUP Column
I have a 27R x 19C table (1st row is headings) that I want to sort. The column that I want to sort on (column O) contains a formula that multiplies two values, each of which is obtained by a VLOOKUP formula. The formula in the cell is: VLOOKUP(E3,StrategicImpactTable,2,0) * VLOOKUP(L3,StatuteRegulatoryImpactTable,2,0). Named ranges StrategicImpactTable and StatuteRegulatoryImpactTable each contain two columns, the second of which is a numeric value associated with the text in the first column.

On the first row VLOOKUP(E3,StrategicImpactTable,2,0) evaluates to 3, VLOOKUP(L3,StatuteRegulatoryImpactTable,2,0) evaluates to 2, and the product results in a numeric value of 6. The 26 values in column O are 6, 6, 4, 2, 2, 4, 4, 6, 4, 4, 4, 4, 9, 9, 9, 3, 3, 9, 9, 9, 4, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9.
