I have Excel worksheets.
I want to write a code to sort it.
But because I have first three rows as headers.
I need to use 4th row and on to sort it.
Say there are 20 rows so I need to sort from 4th to 20th rows.
Because users will add more rows I won't know the last row numbers.

I want to find out if I can code to sort from 4th row to whatever row I have.
How can I do that if this can be done easily??
Thanks much.

how about

ActiveSheet.Range("C5:C" & ActiveSheet.Range("C1").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row).Sort _
    Key1:=Range("C5"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
        OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
        DataOption1:=xlSortNormal

Assuming column A is the column to sort upon, and the data will be sorted in ascending alphabetical order:

ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Resize(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count - 3).Offset(3).Sort Key1:=[A4], Order1:=xlAscending

If you wish to sort on, say, column A ascending, then column B descending, then column E ascending...

ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Resize(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count - 3).Offset(3).Sort Key1:=[A4], Order1:=xlAscending, Key2:=[B4], Order2:=xlDescending, Key3:=[E4], Order3:=xlAscending
