    Sorting sheets when printing?

    I have seen code out there that when a macro button is pushed, it will prompt for what sheets you want to print (although I can't remember it now...) I was wondering if it is possible to create a macro that would sort all the sheets into alphabetical order for printing only (so the sheets stay in the same order they were in before printing....) Does this make sense? And if so, can/how is it done?

    Thank you so much!
    This is exactly what I needed. I get a report from our Payroll department for hours worked and I wanted to keep the sheets in the same order as our payroll report (By department-then alphabetical) so I can enter hours quickly, but needed to print in alpha. order for employees to easily access vacation hours.
