I've been able to add more columns to the "search results" and a sorting option, the 'commented' line (the first with statement to sort C7 ascending) worked, but .SortFields.Add Key:=Range("E7"), Order:=xlDescending does not sort the dates correctly. Any ideas??

Also, I'm trying to figure out how to add boarders to the resultant list....but it ain't workin! Any suggestions??


VBA Code:
Sub Search_criteria_pricing()
  Dim sh1 As Worksheet, sh2 As Worksheet
  Dim a As Variant, b As Variant
  Dim i As Long, j As Long
  Dim cad1 As String, cad2 As String, cad3 As String
  '
  Set sh1 = Sheets("pricing")
  Set sh2 = Sheets("search")
  '
  a = sh1.Range("A1:Q" & sh1.Range("A:Q").Find("*", , xlValues, , 1, 2).Row).Value2
  sh2.Range("A8:H" & Rows.Count).ClearContents
  ReDim b(1 To UBound(a, 1), 1 To 16)
  
  If sh2.[B2] <> "" Then cad1 = "*" & LCase(sh2.[B2].Value) & "*"
  If sh2.[B3] <> "" Then cad2 = "*" & LCase(sh2.[B3].Value) & "*"
  If sh2.[B4] <> "" Then cad3 = "*" & LCase(sh2.[B4].Value) & "*"
  
  'j = sh2 columns, a = sh1 corresponding columns
  ' ///// need to add boarders to resultant list /////
  For i = 1 To UBound(a, 1)
    If LCase(a(i, 1)) Like cad1 And LCase(a(i, 2)) Like cad2 And LCase(a(i, 3)) Like cad3 Then
      j = j + 1
      b(j, 1) = a(i, 1)
      b(j, 2) = a(i, 2)
      b(j, 3) = a(i, 3)
      b(j, 4) = a(i, 9)
      b(j, 5) = a(i, 12)
      b(j, 6) = a(i, 14)
      b(j, 7) = a(i, 15)
      b(j, 8) = a(i, 16)
    End If
  Next i
  
  If j > 0 Then sh2.Range("A8").Resize(j, 16).Value = b
  
'moves to top of displayed list
  Range("A8").Select

'sort results by column C then E  --- **** dates (col E) not sorting correctly
    With ActiveSheet.Sort
        '.SortFields.Add Key:=Range("C7"), Order:=xlAscending
        .SortFields.Add Key:=Range("E7"), Order:=xlDescending
        .SetRange Range("A7:H5555")
        .Header = xlYes
        .Apply
    End With
  
  
End Sub

Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
