I have multiple sheets that need to be sorted based on the values in Column I.  I have used code given below but this is throwing error.

    lc = workbook1.ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 8).End(xlUp).row
     Range("A5").Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    ActiveSheet.Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveSheet.Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range("I6" & lc) _
        , SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlDescending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    With ActiveSheet.Sort
        .SetRange Range("A5" & lc)
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With


Am I missing anything??

Try:
lc = workbook1.ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 8).End(xlUp).Row
     Range("A5").Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    ActiveSheet.Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveSheet.Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range("I6") _
        , SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlDescending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    With ActiveSheet.Sort
        .SetRange Range(Selection.Address)
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With

what you are doing is determining the last used cell in column H and storing the row number in Ic (eg with value 8)
you then select some cells with which you do nothing
you remove previous sort rules
and add a sort rule based on single cell (with Ic value 8 : I68)
which you edit with range based on the single cell A58

you could use this :
Sub sort_on_i()
    UsedRange.Sort Range("I:I"), xlDescending   
End Sub

This will sort each worksheet in the workbook.

It can be altered so only certain worksheets will be sorted.

Option Explicit

Sub SortSheets()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim rngData As Range
Dim LastCol As Long
Dim LastRow As Long

    For Each ws In Worksheets
    
        LastCol = ws.Cells(5, 1).End(xlToRight).Column
        LastRow = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, 8).End(xlUp).Row
        
        Set rngData = ws.Range("A5:A" & LastRow)
        
        Set rngData = rngData.Resize(, LastCol)
        
        ws.Sort.SortFields.Clear
        ws.Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=ws.Range("I6:I" & LastRow), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, _
                                                                        Order:=xlDescending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
        With ws.Sort
            .SetRange rngData
            .Header = xlYes
            .MatchCase = False
            .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
            .SortMethod = xlPinYin
            .Apply
        End With
     Next

End Sub
