I have a worksheet with columns A through R. I need to sort this worksheet by the value that is in Column C. I have searched for the answer and have tried several suggestions, but the worksheet never sorts. In my code below I have commented out all the things I have tried. Is what I am trying to do possible, and if so, how?

Code:
Private Sub cmdBuildOrders_Click()
cmdBuildOrders.Caption = "Running"
cmdBuildOrders.BackColor = RGB(255, 255, 0)
cmdBuildOrders.ForeColor = RGB(0, 0, 0)
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:01")) 'allows command button to change text and back color

lastrow = Sheet3.Range("A100").End(xlUp).Row

Sheet3.Activate
'Range("C1:C17", Range("C1").End(xlDown)).Sort Key1:=Range("C2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlYes

'ActiveSheet.Sort.SortFields.Clear
'Columns("A:R").Sort Key1:=Range("C2:C17"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlYes

'Range("A2:R17").Sort Key1:=Range("C2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlYes

'Range("C2").CurrentRegion.Sort Key1:=Range("C2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlYes

'LastRowSort = Sheet3.Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp).Row
'Range("A2:R" & LastRowSort).Sort key1:=Range("C2:C" & LastRowSort), _
   order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlNo


'For Row = 2 To LastRow
'    Sheet4.Cells(Row, 2).Value = "MPS"                             'Customer Code Parent Row
'    Sheet4.Cells(Row, 3).Value = "ATNA"                           'Project Code Parent Row
'    Sheet4.Cells(Row, 5).Value = "Standard"                     'Type Parent Row
'    Sheet4.Cells(Row, 6).Value = "Pick Pack and Ship"    'Attribute Parent Row
'    Sheet4.Cells(Row, 13).Value = "False"                         'IsAccessory Child Row
'    Sheet4.Cells(Row, 14).Value = "False"                         'IsConfiguration Child Row
'    Sheet4.Cells(Row, 15).Value = "False"                         'Reservation Parent Row
'
'Next Row
cmdBuildOrders.Caption = "Build Customer Page"
cmdBuildOrders.BackColor = RGB(0, 176, 80)
cmdBuildOrders.ForeColor = RGB(255, 255, 255)
End Sub

Dumb question here....but are you sure Sheet3 is the correct sheet ?
Have you tried activating the sheet by name to be sure?
Can you Upload your file to a sharing site, Dropbox for instance, and then post the link back here ?

Code:
Range("A1:R17").Sort Key1:=Range("C2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlYes

Range("C2").CurrentRegion.Sort Key1:=Range("C2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlYes
These above syntax should work.

What's the nature of the data in column C ?
Can you manually sort using the menu?

It's possible to have formulas that use relative row references that produce the same result order when you sort the formulas. In other words, when you sort the formulas, the formulas recalculate and return the same pre-sorted order.

Michael,
I am absolutely positive that sheet 3 is the correct sheet. I even double checked right now to be sure. I am not comfortable posting my file to any file sharing site as it contains customer sensitive information.

AlphaFrog,
I noticed that the range was changed in your line 1 above. I changed my code to match your line. It did not work. The data that is in column C is address information, street number and street name. I can manually sort the data. There are no formula in the spreadsheet, it is a direct data pull from a sharepoint page.

@Computerman...OK, understand that.
Hopefully @AlphaFrog has provided some help.

Maybe the street number is throwing your sort out.

Can you post a desensitized workbook that exhibits the same issue?

Do you have any rows or columns that are completely blank?

Fluff,
while there are no Rows that are completely bank, There is one column that is completely empty. I will test taking that column out and see what happens

***SOLVED***
Fluff, and all who made suggestions,
Thank you all for your suggestions. Following Fluff’s suggestion I removed a blank column from the spreadsheet and using AlphaFrog’s suggestion of Range(A1:Q17)… my spreadsheet is now sorting correctly.
Again, thank you all for your assistance it is appreciated
