How do I remove the absolute value in lines 3 and 6?  The dataset will vary in size.

ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range( _
        "A2:A32"), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:= _
        xlSortNormal
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range( _
        "C2:C32"), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:= _
        xlSortTextAsNumbers
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort
        .SetRange Range("A1:L32")
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With
    ActiveWorkbook.Save
    ActiveWorkbook.Close

Perhaps.
Dim LastRow As Long

    LastRow = Sheets("MODetails").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range( _
        "A2:A" & LastRow), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:= _
        xlSortNormal
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Range( _
        "C2:C" & LastRow), SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:= _
        xlSortTextAsNumbers
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("MODetails").Sort
        .SetRange Range("A1:L" & LastRow)
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With
    ActiveWorkbook.Save
    ActiveWorkbook.Close

Note I've also changed line 9 as that's actually for the entire range you want to sort by columns A and C.
