# VBA Sort RossetaCode

The solution for “VBA Sort RossetaCode” can be found here. The following code will assist you in solving the problem.

``````Public Sub Quick(a() As Variant, last As Integer)
‘ quicksort a Variant array (1-based, numbers or strings)
Dim aLess() As Variant
Dim aEq() As Variant
Dim aGreater() As Variant
Dim pivot As Variant
Dim naLess As Integer
Dim naEq As Integer
Dim naGreater As Integer
If last > 1 Then
‘choose pivot in the middle of the array
pivot = a(Int((last + 1) / 2))
‘construct arrays
naLess = 0
naEq = 0
naGreater = 0
For Each el In a()
If el > pivot Then
naGreater = naGreater + 1
ReDim Preserve aGreater(1 To naGreater)
aGreater(naGreater) = el
ElseIf el < pivot Then
naLess = naLess + 1
ReDim Preserve aLess(1 To naLess)
aLess(naLess) = el
Else
naEq = naEq + 1
ReDim Preserve aEq(1 To naEq)
aEq(naEq) = el
End If
Next
'sort arrays "less" and "greater"
Quick aLess(), naLess
Quick aGreater(), naGreater
'concatenate
P = 1
For i = 1 To naLess
a(P) = aLess(i): P = P + 1
Next
For i = 1 To naEq
a(P) = aEq(i): P = P + 1
Next
For i = 1 To naGreater
a(P) = aGreater(i): P = P + 1
Next
End If
End Sub

Public Sub QuicksortTest()
Dim a(1 To 26) As Variant

'populate a with numbers in descending order, then sort
For i = 1 To 26: a(i) = 26 - i: Next
Quick a(), 26
For i = 1 To 26: Debug.Print a(i);: Next
Debug.Print
'now populate a with strings in descending order, then sort
For i = 1 To 26: a(i) = Chr\$(Asc("z") + 1 - i) & "-stuff": Next
Quick a(), 26
For i = 1 To 26: Debug.Print a(i); " ";: Next
Debug.Print
End Sub``````
