Sorts Data By Column In Descending Order

Mar 26, 2012

I have a macro built that sorts my data by column in descending order depending on what column of information is selected from the drop down menu.

However I need the macro to sort column F in ascending order, and continue to sort the other colulmns in descending order when selected.

I can't get my macro to switch the sort from descending to ascending order for this one column. Looking to see if this is possible, and if so what macro formula I would use.

Here is what the macro i am currently using:

Sub ddSort_Click()
Dim iDdSortVal As Integer
Dim CurrSheet As String
Dim lFirstSectionRow As Long
Dim lLastSectionRow As Long
Dim strCol As String
Dim lRptHeaderRow As Long
Dim iRptMeasColumn As Integer

CurrSheet = ActiveSheet.Name

VLookup Random Numbers - Sort Range In Descending Order And Return Relevant Value From Column

Aug 27, 2012

I have a column (B) of randomly generated numbers 1-14, and am using this formula range to sort in descending order and return the relevant value from column (c).

=VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,1),B3:C20,2,) to =VLOOKUP(LARGE(B3:B20,14),B3:C20,2,)

Works great, except when a number is duplicated, (E.G. 14,13,13,12,11,10,10,9,8 etc). It then returns the first value from(C) repeated, and not the value from the second and subsequent duplicated reference numbers.

Vlookup In Descending Order

Feb 16, 2010

I'm running a workbook that has a list of all the runs for a day, and several daily driver sheets that automatically copy and order the drops using vlookup.

If you look at run 1 on the run listing you will see that holmfirth is the first drop and sandbach is the last drop.

This is also the case on page 1, as it should be.

However, on run 7 you will see that the first drop is Edinburgh and the last drop is Biggar.
The problem is that on the run listing form, we sort the run backwards so that it is loaded onto the trunk wagon backwards, then the load is tran-shipped (swapped) to the delivery wagon (dont ask) and the last drop on the trunk wagon (Biggar on the front end) becomes the first drop(on the back end) on the delivery wagon now in the correct delivery order. I need the daily sheet (page 7) to reflect the fact that Biggar is the first drop and Edinburgh is the last drop.

Automatic Sort By Descending Order?

Mar 15, 2014

Don't know if macro is better, but I would like to try it with function

I have 2 sheets.

Sheet 1
Column A: Name
Column B: Points

Name Points
Mary 40
Johnny 20
Erick 60
Ralph 30

I want Sheet 2 to get data from Sheet 1 and sort by descending order automatically.

Then it should be

Sheet 2

Name Points
Erick 60
Mary 40
Ralph 30
Johnny 20

I don't want to do it manually every time I change some value; I want it to do automatically; so if I change, for example, Erick's points from 60 to 10 in Sheet 1, Erick should appear on the last place in Sheet 2, with his new value (10)

Automatically Sort In Descending Order

Jun 17, 2009

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.

Display Graph In Descending Order

May 11, 2007

I'm being asked to report on some survey findings containing 60 questions for my company. I've rated all 11 departments from 1st to 11th place for each question.

I want to be able to display a graph showing which departments came first, second and third and also where my department came - in the example of the first question, 7th.

What I'd like is a bar graph (ideally) without any values on the Y axis, the department name along the X axis and text labels at the top of each bar showing the position (ie. 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th).

The problem is that if I produce a graph from the following table:

Dept 1 - 1
Dept 2 - 2
Dept 3 - 3
My dept - 7

..then it produces a bar graph with bars in the opposite direction; ie the best department having the smallest bar.

I could just reverse the figures with 11 being the best instead of 1, but then the text labels on top of each bar are wrong. I know I could just label the correct figures by hand with text boxes, but I have 60 of these things to produce!

The closest I came was using the reverse values and having a custom text format to replace the numbers with the opposite text values ie. 11="1st";10="2nd"; but I couldn't get that to work

Any ideas? ....

List Lowest 3 Variable Numbers In Descending Order

Oct 15, 2012

I have a list of numbers in cells A1:A10, these numbers change frequently. I would like to set up a formula to calculate the 3 lowest values from those numbers and list the three lowest values in cells J1:J3, with lowest value on J1 and the highest of the 3 values in J3.

I know I can use the small/large functions for this, but im not sure how to work it out to use just the 3 lowest values.

Keeping Track Of Scores And Automatically Displays Names Of Players In Descending Order?

Feb 7, 2012

I'm fairly new to using excel and have been trying to create a simple spreadsheet that keeps track of scores and automatically displays the names of the players in descending order. Anyway I have gotten to the point of using hookup to match a value and return that players name. But when two players have the same score it will only return the first found value. I sort the number scores using a LARGE function and it works great. Then I use something like this =HLOOKUP(Y2,B27:K28,2,FALSE) to match that value with the players name. How to return the other players name when the scores are the same?

Sparklines And Column Sorts

Jun 4, 2014

I am generating sets of data in Sheet2 to be used for Sparklines in Sheet1. These Sparklines will sit in Column D alongside other pieces of data. The data needs to be sortable by Column A which is a list of Cities.

When sorting my data, Z-A for example, all the relevant data sorts just fine but the Sparklines do not move with the rest of the data.

Is there a way to make Sparklines move with Column sorts?

Sorting According To Previous Column Sorts

Sep 22, 2006

I need a macro or some idea on how to sort the following numbers (I hope this makes sense!)... The problem is with the zeros get sorted to the top (or even if I have blank cells sorted to the bottom) and I need them to ignore the zeros and sort according to the value in their column but not any other column. However, I need them to be sorted in order from D, C, B, A.


ie I need them in the following order.


Therefore they need to sort based on the following columns.

This is because I am charting the values in a column clustered chart that need to be in ascending order.

Sort Command - Custom Order Or Sort Ascending Or Descending

Oct 8, 2006

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

Macro That Sorts Data With Blanks At The Bottom

Nov 13, 2012

I am trying to add a macro that finds a dynamic range (number of rows changing with different data sets) sorts column B, then column A, moving blanks to the bottom. My dilemma is as follows:

I have a template with formulas that cannot be changed (I cannot paste special values, or clear the cells). Column A includes HLOOKUP formulas for cells A14:A120. Column B includes VLOOKUP formulas for cells B14:B120. The different data sets I pull in have different numbers of lines, which is why I need to maintain the formulas. However, I cannot seem to find a way to accurately sort column B first from smallest to largest and then column A from smallest to largest. In all data sets there will be at least a few blank lines that I need to move to the bottom. However, due to the formulas within the cells (column A returns a value of 0 and column B returns a value of “ “), excel does not recognize them as being blank. Here is a sample data set.

S&C Group
77770000587-WEST TOWN BRANCH


In this case, I would like St. Charles & Algonquin to be at the bottom because column B is blank.

Excel 2003 :: VBA Code That Sorts And Deletes Data

Jan 19, 2012

Below is an extensive macro that basically writes data from a user's template to a certain data sheet (in the form of rows) depending on their "service group." There have been 3 separate instances of a user saving data and instead of adding rows onto the bottom of the entire list of data, the sheet only has their data and no headers/filters. I believe it is somehow deleting all the previously written data that was on that sheet.

I should also mention that this is a shared workbook. I specifically created separate sheets for each "service group" to eliminate the possibility of users overwriting each other's data (Perviously 60+ users were saving to the same sheet and running into conflicting changes errors. Now the max users writing to one sheet is 10-12). Since it is not occurring every time, I am not sure where the error is. Could it possibly be in the sort or delete sections in bold below?

I am using Excel 2003.

Sub SaveData_Test()
' Procedure : SaveData_Test
' Author : Julie/Cecil
' Date : Fri, 1/13/12
' Purpose : Modified Julies code to capture date entries

Changing Values Of X-axis, And Descending Order Axis(x-axis)

Two questions:

1) How do make values on x-axis as words? E.g. apples, oranges, etc.

2) Is it possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order? If I can figure out 1), I can do this as well, but it would be nice to know if it is possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order.

Look At Column A Number In Descending Sequence In Column B

Mar 20, 2008

there may even be an excel formula answer to it rather than a macro. Coloumn A has a series of numbers, I want column B to show those numbers in what would be there Descending Sequence.

Col A

So with this routine you would then see

COL ACOL B10029731478743251081216 The above I suspect is not too difficult, however if two (or more) numbers are the same I want the sequence to reflect that thus COL A COL B100297 314 797 332 5108 121 6 and no... the data - Col A - cannot be sorted, it must stay in that sequence.

If possible I would want this done automatically when any Col A value changes (any unused cells would be 0 by the way). Oh, there will in fact be 25 cells in column A for this.

Re-Order Columns Based On Column Order Of Another Worksheet

Mar 1, 2008

I need a way to re-order an excel worksheets columns based on another worksheet.

Data is extracted from a database into excel however users can configure the columns in the initial system. to how they like This causes problems when the data is copied into an excel spreadsheet I have created as the data copied will not be in the same column order as is required.

How can i reorder the columns without physically having to cut and paste the columns to match?

I have attached a sample spreadsheet.

You will see on the spreadsheet that 'fixed columns' is the order that i require the data however 'variable columns' is not in the same order.
