    Sorting by Alpha, Adding Subtotal - then removing subtotal - variable data sets

    I am trying to build a macro that will add subtotals, sort then remove the subtotals - on variable data set lengths - I have the attached - but when I add it into a larger macro, it fails;

    The part that fails is the sort while the subtotals are on

    I think I need to define a region - or something - but really no idea how to! So far just build by recording and adding on

    You start the code with

    so it depends heavily on what is selected at the beginning.

    The easy cure - should be to add at the top of the code:

    PS. attaching code inside Word doc is a bit unusual - you can put it in the post (just remember to use code tags as required by our https://www.excelforum.com/forum-rul...rum-rules.html ) or inside attached workbook.
    Best Regards,

    Ok so I have found where it keeps breaking. The below code sorts by subtotalled fields for a specified range - however that range is variable. So when I add in more data, then re run, it does not include all the data in the sort.

    I tried the Range suggestions above and unfortunately still could not get it working. Thanks in advance for help.

    Hi,

    I assume that using http://www.excelforum.pl/download.htm?id=69841 I could find what changes / how "range is variable"

    So the first suggestion is that data is added or removed at the bottom of the range, column A has some kind of index/unique ID so is filled in every data row.

    If that's not enough, then probably my tool from the link above is not strong enough. And then I'll write basically the same as few posts above but in more open way:

    Will you please attach a SMALL sample Excel workbook(s) (10-20 rows of data is usually enough)? Please don't attach a picture of one (no-one will want to re-type all your stuff before starting).

    1. Make sure that your sample data are truly REPRESENTATIVE of your real data. (If trere are typical cases like: all unique values/duplicates could occur, day/night, nobody present/several persons at once, before/on/past due, etc. - please show them all or at least indicate in text) The use of unrepresentative data is very frustrating and can lead to long delays in reaching a solution.

    2. Make sure that your desired solution(s) is/are also shown (mock up the results manually).

    3. Make sure that all confidential/restricted information (either personal or business) like real e-mails, social security numbers, bank accounts, etc. is removed first!!

    To attach an Excel file you have to do the following: Just before posting, scroll down and press Go Advanced button and then scroll down and press Manage Attachments link. Now follow the instructions at the top of that pop-up screen.

    Sorry about the delay. I have now replicated the data in original form - and then the desired output.

    Couple of things to note;

    This macro will be run each month
    The number of rows will be different each month (could be less, could be more)
    The Macro will start on another tab/sheet
    It will need to run on sheet "A-L" & "M-Z"

    Thanks again! I'm sure the solution is simple
