# Thread: sorting 3 seperate sheets simultaneously (is this tough?)

1. I have three sheets that interact.

Sheet 2 is the prime entry and contains formula to the right that are horizontally relational to the left.

Sheet 3 contains col a to h that link directly to the same columns in sheet 2, the remainder of the cells are just archived prime entry pasted relevant to the left most cell value.

Sheet 1 links col a to h directly to sheet 2 col a to h. The column to the right are prime entry, which when activated over ride cells in sheet 2. "ap15:bf2000.end (xlup)"

I therefore have a couple of question re sorting.

1
The columns in sheet 1 ( a to H) when sorted do not sort the identical to sheet 2( a to h , prime entry). sheet 1 being formula referenceing sheet 2. WHY?

Data is alfa numeric.

2
I have a range in sheet 2 [ap15:bf2000.end (xlup)] that references the prime entry in sheet 1 [i15:w2000.end(xlup)]

I am able to sort any way I which, however I have one niggly problem. That is the formula in the range [ap15:bf2000.end(xlup)] does not stay in line ( horizontally), but changes with sheet 1.

In Lotus 123 you could sort with "no adjust" can you do that with excel, if so how as I cannot find it in the books.

3. If you cannot how can I sort range [a15:an2000] and [bk15:ih2000] together and at the same time, thereby not changing the reference.

I have tried various concatenates (& ) etc but cannot get the syntax right.

Range(Range("A15"), Range("A2000").EndUp(xlUp).Offset(0,39) & ____

Range(Range("BJ15"), Range("BJ2000").EndUp(xlUp).Offset(0,189))).Select

Can anyone explain the above.
I am sure the logic is right and I have tried sorting both ways. i.e. prime entry up and formula down with out success.

The ultimate goal is that all three sheet sort by column a or b and the prime entry stays in line in all three sheets.

This has stumped me all day and therefore any help would be appreciated.

thanks

2. Have you tried using another column in each of the sheets that are numbered, i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, and so on so each row is numbered. If you have the same rows numbered on each of the other two sheets you could then use the numbered columns to make sure that all stays in line.

3. I see your logic. Good idea, I'll give it a go and advise.

Thanks for taking time.
