    Auto sort

    I have a table in excel that has names and other data. I would like excel to automatically sort it by last name, which is the second column, after I enter a complete row of information. FYI, I am not familiar with much more than the basics of excel, I have never used macro or anything like that so please explain it step by step.

    Secondly, I would also love to have a form in which I just enter the data and then it puts it into my spreadsheet. Is that pretty simple? Would I need to use Access for that. I have never used Access before.

    I have attached a similar spreadsheet. I removed private information and made it more plain.

    Hi bfbirch

    Welcome to the Forum!

    First, we'll focus on this
    I would also love to have a form in which I just enter the data and then it puts it into my spreadsheet
    It's relatively simple but gets a bit complicated, depending on how you use it.

    Couple of questions:
    • What's the significance of the "MRN" number and how is it assigned...these will be out of sequence once you've sorted the data by last name.
    • Do you have a list of "GENOTYPE" s?
    • Do you have a list of "STAGE" s?
    • Is "TX NA¤VE Y/N" always a Y/N answer or can it be blank?
    • I assume "TX COMMENTS" is truly a comment...or is it restricted to specific comments...if so, a list please.

    If you have issues with Code I've provided, I appreciate your feedback.
