Is it possible to use range names to do a sort? see macro code below!
What syntax would I use to input the Range Name Data Sort in the place of B5.AS100?


Sheets("Project Prioritization Queue").Select
Range("B5:AS100").Select
Selection.Sort Key1:=Range("L5"), Order1:=xlDescending, Key2:=Range("S5") _
, Order2:=xlDescending, Header:=xlGuess, OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:= _
False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Set rid of the Range().select code

Range("yourdatarangename") replaces Selection in the sort code, as follows:

Range("yourdatarangename").Sort Key1:=Range("L5"), Order1:=xlDescending, Key2:=Range("S5") _
, Order2:=xlDescending, Header:=xlGuess, OrderCustom:=1, MatchCase:= _
False, Orientation:=xlTopToBottom
