    I am trying to auto sort a table by date,

    I am putting the sort code into a module then calling on the sheet page where the table is located.

    my call is:

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    Sub AutoUpdater requires an argument of Target. You did not provide it when you called the sub. I am guessing you need this:

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    Thank you and my apologies!

    There are no more error codes but the dates do not sort?

    In addition if I click run, the module doesnt show up in the macros window

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    You have two problems in you AutoUpdater code as it relates you your trying to do a sort...

    The following line...

    require the range passed into it to be single cell... it's kind of hard to sort only one cell.

    If you remove the above problem, the following line...

    doesn't make use of the Target which may or may not be a problem BUT you are specifying a sort on cell E14 which, again, is a single cell... and again, it is hard to sort a single cell.

    Also, not sure which macros window you mean but if you go to Developer - Macros, you won't see it because it has an argument, and there is no way to call a sub with an argument from the worksheet interface.

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    A help site gave that skeleton code as a basis for sorting a dynamic list by date. Here is the updated code in which I've altered it and only call it in a module. It still doesn't work; do you all have any additional suggestions?

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    The problem with your question is you never really told use how you want this to work. After reading over everything here I think you want to call a macro from the list of macros. I assume you will always be sorting Sheet1. I think you want this in a standard module (like Module1):

    You can now call this from the list of macros, or add a button on your worksheet to call it. (Personally, I would use Autofilter on the worksheet and not even write a macro for this.)

    Here's why your other attempts did not work:

    Your original attempt used Worksheet_Change which is automatically called when the user changes the content of any cell. Target is the current range that the user has selected. Since you are not using that, I don't know why you would be using this sub. That is what hampered everything else you tried.

    Worksheet_SelectionChange is an event handler. It is automatically called by VBA anytime that the user changes the cell selection. It can be called from another sub but that is not the intent and I don't recommend it. Same idea.

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    Trust me I wish it was that easy. This spreadsheet has to be used by non-basic excel savvy people so I must make it as automated as possible. And thank you as I am new to VBA. How then, would I change to sort new to old as this is old to new

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    What action do you want to trigger the sort?

    This could go a lot faster if you attach your file so we can see what you're describing.

    For new-to-old change xlAscending to xlDescending.

    Re: Compile Error: Argument not optional

    Unfortunately the spreadsheet contains trade secreted information. That worked for the correct order (I assumed I needed to change orientation as well). The trigger needs to be when a date is entered or altered.
