I have this macro to sort numbers into ascending order left to right on multiple rows.

Im getting a runtime error.

Could it be fixed ?

Public Sub SortRows()

   Dim Row As Range
   For Each Row In Selection.Rows
      Row.Sort Key1:=Row.Cells(1, 1), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlNo, Orientation:=xlLeftToRight
   Next Row

End Sub

All you probably need to do is to record a macro while you are doing what you want to do. If your range varies from time to time we can talk about that later.
