VBA code is sorting on some worksheet but not all

New Contributor

i have a vba code to search out a worksheet and then sort by date. it was working on the original 15 sheets i had in the workbook. when i copied and added a 16th worksheet it does not run the sort on that sheet. microsoft excel 365 mso version 2211                                                                    With Workbooks("30#group.xlsm").Worksheets("22").Sort
.SetRange Range("F10:L608")
.Header = x1Yes
.MatchCase = False
.Orientation = x1TopToBottom
.SortMethod = x1PinYin
End With


it seems to me that when i added the 16th sheet that it does not see it. the 15th sheet is (code sheet 23) or that the new (16th) worksheet can not run the vba code?

If you change the line


With Workbooks("30#group.xlsm").Worksheets("22").Sort




With ActiveSheet.Sort


you should be able to run the macro on the active sheet, whichever sheet that is...

Could you add a screenshot of the list of sheets in the VBA editor under the VBA Project pane?



Maybe consider replacing your existing code with a loop through all the sheets, rather than repeating the code for each sheet. This will make it easier to keep consistent and debug. 


You could try this (not tested):


Public Function SortSheetsInGroup30()

Dim wb As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim sheetsToSort() As String
Dim addressToSort As String

addressToSort = "F10:L608"

'put any sheet names you want to sort comma-separated in the first parameter of Split
sheetsToSort = Split("14,18,11,20,20.5,23,24,25,26,27,28.5,29.25,30,33,0,22,12.5", ",")

Set wb = Workbooks("30#group.xlsm")

For Each ws In wb.Worksheets

    If Not IsError(Application.WorksheetFunction.Match(ws.Name, sheetsToSort, 0)) Then
        'the sheet is in the sheetsToSort array
        'sort it
        With ws.Sort
            .SetRange ws.Range(addressToSort)
            .Header = x1Yes
            .MatchCase = False
            .Orientation = x1TopToBottom
            .SortMethod = x1PinYin
        End With
    End If

Next ws

End Function


Call that function from your OnChange event in the control workbook.
