Sorting Sections again, this time on different sheets

Recently I asked for help sorting sections on an Excel spreadsheet.  I have three sections separated by blank rows and I want to sort the first section by the last column and have the other 2 sections sort the same way as the first.  I received a solution that worked great and I really appreciate it.  Now I'm wondering if I can do the same thing but I have an additional three sections on another worksheet.  So the sheet I used originally looks like the attached.  I would have another sheet with three similar sections (different metrics) and would want them to sort when this sheet sorts and to sort in the same order as the first section on the first sheet.

I hope this is not too confusing...

Sorry I didn't mean to accept my own solution.  There really was no solution given but I was going to give the points to the responder anyway.  I'm not sure what to do in the case where no solution worked.

Please the attached file, you need to indicate the full path of the second workbook that you want to sort as well.
Please let me know if this works for you. The assumtio is : we are also sorting in sheet 1 of the other workbook.
If you need more exception handling code (such as second workbook does not exists etc) can be added.

Sorry I am so late in responding.  I think I was unclear.  I don't need to sort another workbook, just another sheet in the same workbook.  So the first worksheet has the sort button on it and has three sections.  The sort button sorts the first section and the following two sections sort the same way as the first section -- this is all done on the same worksheet.  The next worksheet (right after this first one) does not have a sort button on it because it also has 3 sections and they need to be sorted in the same order as the first section on the first sheet.  Let me know if this makes sense.

Thanks,

I came up with a solution that is kind of messy but it works for now. &nbsp;I basically create an index on the first sheet and match the second sheet to that index and then sort.<br /><br />Thanks for your help

I created an index from one sheet to another and then used the match function but included sheet names
