Convert Excel Sort Macro to usable code for dynamic range

Excel Experts:

When a macro is recorded to select a range and sort it a range like "Y2:Z10" is selected.
if new data is placed in the cells the range cannot change dynamically when the count of rows changes.

What is the best way to rewrite this code to recognize a change in column count when the macro runs?

please see attached Excel file

Try this.....

Set the ws as per your requirement in the below code.

Sub SortColumns()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim lr As Long

Set ws = Sheets("Menu")
lr = ws.Cells(Rows.Count, "Y").End(xlUp).Row
ws.Range("Y1:Z" & lr).Sort Key1:=ws.Range("Y2"), Order1:=xlDescending, Orientation:=xlSortColumns, Header:=xlYes
End Sub
