Got a sort problem

Ok here goes, I have a number of sheets in one book.

What I need to do is - in sheets 1 to 10 I need to do a sort, then in sheets 11 to 20 which are linked to sheets 1 to 10 I need to sort also.

If I sort sheets 1 to 10 there fine, but, when I go to sort sheets 11 to 20 because they are linked to the first 10 sheets it doesn't sort right.

For example in sheet 11 cell G4 is linked to sheet 6 cell F16, but because I have sorted the information in sheet 6 it does not tie in with the information that was previously in row 16 as that information is now in row 4. How can I sort sheet 11 so that the information relates to the information that is now in row 4 of sheet 6?

Hope I have explained this OK!

Test for Multiple Conditions in IF?
Use AND(test, test, test, test) or OR(test, test, test, ...) as the logical_test argument of IF.

Hi Jimboayr

I think a userform may help you in this query. If you had a combo box on it for each range you wanted to filter then link them to your sheets. You would need to use quite a bit of VBA code to make it work depending on the amount of columns etc you wanted to filter.
