Matching Dynamic Data Feed with Static Manual Input

I have website data sent to a spreadsheet on my PC and it always writes in columns A (person's name) to J, but the number of rows (people) is variable. People can be added to or removed from the list. I can control the starting position of the data feed (e.g. Workbook name, sheet name and starting position, currently A1) and also the frequency of the feed and turn the feed on and off. To the sheet, I manually add additional data in column K, and perform calculations in columns L, M, N etc based on column K and D and E.

The problem I have is that once I entered data in column K, the names and number of lines on the data feed can change making the data I entered incorrect. So, A to J is dynamic, but K onwards is static.

Additionally, the data feed is not in alphabetical order, but the data I have is arranged alphabetically. It would save a lot of input time if both lists were sorted alphabetically.

My Excel knowledge is fairly basic, and I would be really grateful for any suggestions on solutions.

PC/Windows10/Microsoft 365.
