'"SORT" selected range
'cutting and inserting rows, so that links to the actual
'cells will "follow" the cells after they are sorted.
'
'The selected data range should contain headers/field names.
'The sort "key" will be the header in the column of the active cell.
'The range to be sorted can be one or several columns.

'EXAMPLE
'BEFORE
'sheet1 sheet2 display
'H1 =sheet1!A1 H1
'a3 =sheet1!A2 a3
'a1 =sheet1!A3 a1

'AFTER
'sheet1 sheet2 display (not changed)
'H1 =sheet1!A1 H1
'a1 =sheet1!A4 a3
