ouestque asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I was given code that creates a collection and puts that collection into a form in my Excel spreadsheet. See below...

How do I take my collection (After it has been created, and re-create it in alphabetical order?

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
Dim r As Range
Dim MaxRow As Long
Dim sName As String
Dim c As New Collection
Dim n As Long


MaxRow = Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    sName = ActiveCell.Value

Set r = Cells(1, 1)
    On Error Resume Next
    Do Until r.Row > MaxRow
        If r.Value = sName Then
            c.Add r.Offset(0, 2).Value, r.Offset(0, 2).Value
        End If
        Set r = r.Offset(1, 0)
For n = 1 To c.Count
    ListBox1.AddItem c(n)
Next n

End Sub
