Take a look at:

If you just want a general sorting algorithm and it doesn't have to be mergesort, you're probably better off using some other algorithm. Quicksort is usually faster. For an example, look at:

Depending on how your numeric data is arranged, countingsort and other algorithms may be much faster. I don't have examples of those posted but you can find them in my book "Ready-to-Run Visual Basic Algorithms" (http://www.vb-helper.com/vba.htm).
