In Sheet1, A:D has data about this year’s clients and column E has names of last year’s clients. Sheet2 is where new clients' data need to be copied.

With the below code, I'm trying to paste new 2022 clients' data (A:D) to non-filled cells of Sheet2 in columns A:D. the condition is if A2<>E2:E20 then paste A2:D2 into Sheet2 non-filled row.

but I'm getting run-time error 104: "you can't paste this here because the copy area and paste area aren't the same sizes. Select just one cell in the paste area or an area that's the same size, and try pasting again." and the VBA line "ActiveSheet.Paste" is gets yellow highlighted when I click the command button.
I don't understand why.
Sheet2 shows the desired outcome where green highlighted rows are new clients.

VBA Code:
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()

    c = Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
    cc = Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(Rows.Count, 5).End(xlUp).Row

  For j = 1 To c
    For jj = 1 To cc
      
            If Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(j, 1).Value <> Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(jj, 5).Value Then

                Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("a" & i & ":d" & i).Copy

                Worksheets("Sheet2").Activate


                b = Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

                Worksheets("Sheet2").Cells(b + 1, 1).Select

                ActiveSheet.Paste

                Worksheets("Sheet1").Activate

            End If


        Next: Next

    Application.CutCopyMode = False

    ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1).Select


End Sub

From Sheet1, 2021 clients data (E:H) needs to be copied to Sheet2 (E:H).

In columns E:H Sheet1, orange highlighted ones are those who are still with company so their data (E:H- from Sheet1) will be copied to Sheet 2 (E:H).

In Columns E:H Sheet1, non-highlighted ones are not with business anymore, so their data is not required in Sheet2.

How coding will be done? please help!

Try this. After the End With at the end of the sort and Before the Delete column add the code in blue below:

Rich (BB code):
    shtNew.Sort.SortFields.Clear
    shtNew.Sort.SortFields.Add2 key:=rngNew.Columns(lcolNew) _
        , SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet2").Sort
        .SetRange rngNew
        .Header = xlYes
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With

    ' XXX Additional code to colour code the old and new clients
    Dim rowFirstNew As Long
    Dim lrowNew As Long
    
    lrowNew = shtNew.Cells(Rows.Count, lcolNew).End(xlUp).Row
    With Application
        rowFirstNew = .IfError(.Match(999999, rngNew.Columns(lcolNew), 0), 0)
        If rowFirstNew <> 0 Then
            rngNew.Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(rowFirstNew - 1, lcolNew)).Interior.Color = 14083324
            rngNew.Range(Cells(rowFirstNew, 1), Cells(lrowNew, lcolNew)).Interior.Color = 15123099
        End If
    End With
    ' XXX End of additional code
