Adding a range definition (e.g., All for the entire sheet) works, but then the definition is persistent across all sheets, so trying to sort another sheet fails again. There needs to be a way to change the default action to Range contains column labels

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you thank you.

I moved from Windoze to Linux in 2002 and never looked back, except haltingly at my zillions of VB and VBA scripts. The OOffice attempt at a macro language was just 'way too arcane. This LibreOffice Basic version seems much better, but still not a match, unless I can find a really good tutorial, which I have not yet. Probably the most pressing need is for a keyboard recording macro, which is basically how I learned VB. Record a series of actions, then analyse them and now you know it, rather than spending hours wading through man pages...

Excellent solution. Thank you again, so much.

Kind regards, Andy
