This link from Microsoft shows how to do bubble sort, selection sort, and shell sort:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/Q169/6/17.asp&NoWebContent=1

Here is a simple bubble sort

Sub BubbleSortNumbers(iArray As Variant)
Dim lLoop1 As Long
Dim lLoop2 As Long
Dim lTemp As Long

startTime = Time()
For lLoop1 = UBound(iArray) To LBound(iArray) Step -1
For lLoop2 = LBound(iArray) + 1 To lLoop1
If iArray(lLoop2 - 1) < iArray(lLoop2) Then
lTemp = iArray(lLoop2 - 1)
iArray(lLoop2 - 1) = iArray(lLoop2)
iArray(lLoop2) = lTemp
End If
Next lLoop2
Next lLoop1
endTime = Time()
timeToSort = endTime - startTime
timeTaken = "Bubble Sort: " & timeToSort
End Sub

Cheers,

how do we call the sub ?

Is Arr_First5Highest() an array of Integers or Long?

If you are using:
Sub BubbleSort (List() As Long, ByVal min As Integer, _
ByVal max As Integer)

It expects an array of Long values
