Things become easier when you process database data with a database application. If your entire sheet is only one table with its origin at A1, then you can automatically sort all columns, even empty ones, and even if your table has empty rows. Otherwise, you may need to repeatedly scroll to the top or left of the sheet to remember what's in what row or column. For instance, to lock the first 2 rows and 2 columns, you select cell C3; to fix 3 rows and 3 columns, select cell D4 etc. This applies a filter to each column that can be used to sort.
