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,

Leo

how do we call the sub ?

BubbleSortNumbers(Arr_First5Highest(),0,6)   <---returned an error type mismatch: array or user defined type expected

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
