I need to sort my worksheet by 3 different columns. The first 2 have to be ascending and then the last one is descending. I do have headers in row 1 so the sort would need to start in row 2. I need to sort as follows:

Column F - Ascending
Column L - Ascending
Column M - Descending

How can this be written in excel vba?

I'm a fan of the old-style sort:

Sub SortActiveSheet()

    Range("a1").Sort Key1:=Range("f1"), Order1:=xlAscending, _
        Key2:=Range("L1"), Order2:=xlAscending, _
        Key3:=Range("m1"), Order3:=xlDescending, _
        Header:=xlYes

End Sub
