Workbook A is where the input of data is made;
Workbook B has a link to the input from workbook A;
Workbook A retrieves the altered data back as a link.
Although this all works fine with both books open, I note that if I open
workbook A by itself, that the data it retrieves from Workbook B is not
updated . If However, both books are open, there's no problem. I thought
linked books were updated automatically if the Update remote references has
been selected?? But it appears that the second book is not updated until it

then sort by status, then by date. this should group them

As Frank said, that's the maximum cols
But maybe you could try transposing your table / data ?

I have posted a cemetery survey on Excell spreadsheet. When I try to sort
the birth dates or death dates in ascending or descending order the range of
1900 dates will sort but the 1800 dates fall after the 1900 and will not
sort. Why? Is this inherit with this program?
The WinXL default dates start with 31 December 1899, so earlier "dates"
are interpreted as Text.
You can use helper columns and text functions (LEFT(),RIGHT(),MID()) to
put the Year, Month and Day in separate columns, then sort.
Take a look here for additional workarounds:

there a way to add them to a 3D chart?
I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
