Will someone please help me with this? I have been trying for a couple weeks on and off and I keep giving up out of frustration. I am trying to sort by column T, by cells colors for the rows I have selected which changes. I recorded a macro and tried applying solutions from similar questions Ive read while looking for a solution. I know this has been asked many times, but I just cant get it to work for my criteria. This is the recorded macro with the sorting criteria I need followed by the closest solution/explanation I have found.

Code:
Sub Sort_Selection()


    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Live").Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Live").Sort.SortFields.Add(Range("T419:T452"), _
        xlSortOnCellColor, xlAscending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(79, 129 _
        , 189)
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Live").Sort.SortFields.Add(Range("T419:T452"), _
        xlSortOnCellColor, xlAscending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(153, _
        255, 204)
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Live").Sort.SortFields.Add(Range("T419:T452"), _
        xlSortOnCellColor, xlDescending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(153, 0 _
        , 204)
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Live").Sort.SortFields.Add(Range("T419:T452"), _
        xlSortOnCellColor, xlDescending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(0, 255 _
        , 0)
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Live").Sort
        .SetRange Range("A419:AE452")
        .Header = xlGuess
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With
End Sub

Code:
Public Sub sSortSelection()


'use the keyword "Selection" for the currently selected range
With ActiveSheet.Sort
    .SortFields.Clear
    'the key you want to use is the column to sort on. I used column 1, which is "A", column "B" is 2, etc
    .SortFields.Add Key:=Selection.Columns(1), Order:=xlDescending
    .SetRange Selection
    .Apply
End With


End Sub
 

Excel Facts

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

If I understood correctly, you want to select several rows and sort that selection by the colors you have in column T.
Try the following.


Code:
Sub Sort_Selection_1()
    Dim rng As Range, rngT As Range, ini As Long, fin As Long
    
    Set rng = Selection
    
    ini = rng.Cells(1, 1).Row
    fin = rng.Rows.Count + ini - 1
    Set rngT = Range("T" & ini & ":T" & fin)
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Live").Sort
        
        .SortFields.Clear
        .SortFields.Add(rngT, xlSortOnCellColor, xlAscending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(79, 129, 189)
        .SortFields.Add(rngT, xlSortOnCellColor, xlAscending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(153, 255, 204)
        .SortFields.Add(rngT, xlSortOnCellColor, xlDescending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(153, 0, 204)
        .SortFields.Add(rngT, xlSortOnCellColor, xlDescending, , xlSortNormal).SortOnValue.Color = RGB(0, 255, 0)
        
        .SetRange Range("A" & ini & ":AE" & fin)
        .Header = xlGuess
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With
End Sub
