i have a spread sheet that i use for a pool league i am in.... in one sheet i enter all of the players scores.... in another sheet i have a consecutive wins spreadsheet set up that needs all of the players to be listed twice on the same sheet.... the sheets are all linked together like this...

score sheet names =top list of names on consecutive sheet ... and the bottom set of names on the consecutive sheet = the top set of names... the name portion of these are all identical... but the info to the right of them is all different.... if i try and sort 1 by itself it screws up one or both of the other lists.... the lists are getting so long tho that it is hard for me to find names and I would like them all to be alphabetical.

any way for me to sort 3 identically sized ranges at the same time???

Hi d0wnt0wn,

Thinking out loud without really knowing your sheet layouts. Can you not make the first columns of the second and third sheets read something like =Sheet1!A1, Sheet1!A2 and so on down the page and then use a VLOOKUP to get the rest of the pages. Then when you sort the first page the other pages will automatically re-arrange the first columns to match the first page with the rest of the data "looked-up" using col1 as the lookup criteria.
