EE Pros,

I have a simple graphic that depicts priority based on two factors.  I need a macro that looks at a helper cell (column) and determines "priority" (high to low) and properly place a set of sequencial rows in the proper order (highest priority first).  I have attached a worksheet so you can see exactly what I'm trying to accomplish.

Thank you in advance,

B.

Hi, Bright01.

Please see attached. The code (below) uses the Helper Cells column to determine how many rows are in the table - the last row is considered to be the one before the first blank cell.
Option Explicit

Sub Prioritise()
Dim xLast_Row As Long

Sheets("Risk_Return").Activate

Range("E6").End(xlDown).Select

xLast_Row = ActiveCell.Row
Range("A7").Select

If xLast_Row = Cells.Rows.Count Then
    MsgBox ("No data found - run cancelled.")
    Exit Sub
End If

With Sheets("Risk_Return").Sort
    .SortFields.Clear
    .SortFields.Add Key:=Range("E7:E" & xLast_Row), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlDescending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    .SetRange Range("A6:E" & xLast_Row)
    .Header = xlYes
    .MatchCase = False
    .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
    .SortMethod = xlPinYin
    .Apply
End With

Range("A7") = "1"
Range("A7").AutoFill Destination:=Range("A7:A" & xLast_Row), Type:=xlFillSeries

End Sub

Open in new window
