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

Works fine for me. What error do you get and what does your rows look like?

Run time error 1004

sort method of range class failed.

Im using 2003, could this be for a later version perhaps ?

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.

I don't have 2007 but here's an article that explains how.


Edit : Oops I see you use 2003. Be back soon.
