sort within a sort in Excell 2003

I tried to get an answer to this by replying at the end of another
thread, but I've gone back since & noticed that the last entry was
a month or 2 old. My apologies.

I've got a macro going that has done sorting on multiple worksheets,
changed background color, etc. All kinds of good stuff ...

I've used this in several places in the macro to get the last row
of data: LR = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "G").End(xlUp).Row

Where I'm hung up, is in the middle of a sort (column G has all 0
values on top). What I need to capture, is the next row after the
bottom 0 value, so I can sort from there till the end of the data,
using column K.

I've been assuming I need to be tackling this a piece at at time,
since I need the 0 values on top & I'm not concerned with what's
happening in column K while sorting column G. Or is there a way
to get this all done in one swell foop?

You could count the zeros in column G. (using worksheetfunction.countif()) then since you know where your data starts, you can figure out which row the zeros end on.

I've had my head so stuck on "there must be some kind of 'fancy' way to do this", that I've overlooked the obvious.
