But I just got a blank grid ?

Public Sub LoadData()

      Dim usedRng As Range
      Sheets("List").Activate
      
      
    Cells.Select
    Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("A1"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlGuess, _
        OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:=False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom, _
        DataOption1:=xlSortNormal
      
      
      
      
      
      ' get the rnge from the spreadsheet
         DetermineUsedRange usedRng
           ' select the range for the listbox
            ListBox1.RowSource = "List!" & usedRng.Address

There is no RowSource property. Here's a sample showing how to load it from a range and how to implement column sorting (just click on a column header)

The code loads the contiguous range from A1 on the current sheet, if that's what you mean?
