    Macro to sort user defined data

    I have had a look on the forum, but cant find anything to help me

    Im a newbie in this so please bear with me

    I have tried to edit or rewrite a macro i had for something else but it didnt work as such.

    What im trying to do is sort data on a protected sheet that has locked cells.

    So what im trying to do is allow the user to select the area he/she wants to sort. Unprotect the sheet, do the sorting in a predetemined order and then lock the sheet.

    Sounds easy, but every timei recorded a macro it recorded the sorting area, This is different and therefore it needs to be selected by the user.

    Hopes that makes sense

    Best to post up what you have thus far... in short you can use Selection to determine the active range (at time of routine being invoked).

    I would also ask you PM a Mod to have this moved to the Excel Programming forum (parent of this one).

    I thought i had posted this in the Excel Programming forum.. ???

    Below is the macro as recorded, as you can see i had to select an area to record the macro. What i need is for the user to be able to select the area, as they would have to do this a number of times on the sheet.
