Any ideas why this formula won't work in VBA but will in the worksheet? The responses tab exists. How should it be updated? THANK YOU!

Code:
    ActiveCell = "=IF(VLOOKUP(E2,Responses!E:R,8,FALSE)=0,"",(VLOOKUP(E2,Responses!E:R,6,FALSE)))"
    Range("J2").Select

Can you sort left to right?
To sort left-to-right, use the Sort dialog box. Click Options. Choose "Sort left to right"

Double the quote marks (Bold Red above) so VBA recognizes them as part of a string.
