Sub SortIndividualJR()
'Updateby Extendoffice 20161123
    Dim xRg As Range
    Dim yRg As Range
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Set ws = ActiveSheet
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Range Selection:", _
                                    Title:="Kutools for excel", Type:=8)
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each yRg In xRg
        With ws.Sort
            .SortFields.Clear
            .SortFields.Add Key:=yRg, Order:=xlAscending
            .SetRange ws.Range(yRg, yRg.End(xlDown))
            .Header = xlNo
            .MatchCase = False
            .Apply
        End With
    Next yRg
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

    Thank you so much for this. It really helped. I would also like to know how to sort by color. I have 26 columns, each having different types of items identified by the font color. I would like to alphabetize all the columns individually but in a specific color order. How do I do this?

    I love this, I'm curious as to the functionality of sorting by color for each column individually. I tried this but it didn't work:


    Dim xRg As Range
    Dim yRg As Range
    Dim ws As Worksheet
    Set ws = ActiveSheet
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox(Prompt:="Range Selection:", _
    Title:="Kutools for excel", Type:=8)
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each yRg In xRg
    With ws.Sort
    .SortFields.Clear
    .SortFields.Add Key:=yRg, _
    SortOn:=xlSortOnCellColor, Order:=xlDescending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    .SetRange ws.Range(yRg, yRg.End(xlDown))
    .Header = xlNo
    .MatchCase = False
    .Apply
    End With
    Next yRg
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    End Sub

    ¿Cómo puedo ordenar por color múltiples filas de forma independiente y que las celdas que no tengan color estén a la derecha?

    When I try to sort the columns it sorts data outside of the sected range! Why is this?
