You could make separate worksheets in which you set the desired sorting, and use hyperlinks to point to the specific sorted worksheets.

If you want to change the sorting on the active worksheet, you would be needing macro code to change the sorting to your liking.

In the latter case it would be helpful if you could post an example for us to work on
