    Sort based upon cell color (2000 sp3)

    All,
    I have a rather large spreadsheet with color coding in the cells. Is it possible to sort based upon the color? if so, how?

    All,

    I used the link Kieran supplied and placed the resulting code into the "this Workbook" section. I then placed the information in the cell to call the function, however all I am getting is #NAME?

    Attached is the information from the website. Any thoughts???? I followed the directions on the website.......

    Try putting the code in a module...
