Add Auto Filter (unique Records) Option To Macro

Dec 22, 2009

I have been modifying a workbook and the original macro will send to the sheet Results once the "Search" button is clicked, but I have found that this macro is displaying duplicate records. Can anyone help me put in an auto filter to find only unique records? My second workaround option is if someone can help me remove the go to/select sheet option from the "Search" macro so that a user will not automatically be sent to the Results tab and will instead hit the "Confirm Category Selection" button (which auto filters before sending the user to the Results tab).

Auto Updated - Filter Unique Records

Feb 10, 2009

A worksheet has a column named "Grade". There are may entries into this column, and most are used multiple times. I'd like a list in another location (to use in a list box on a user form) that contains all of the unique entries in the "Grade" column.

I know how to do the Advanced filter for unique records, but when I add different grades to the column, the filtered list does not update to reflect the addition. Do I need to run a macro to run the filter after every new entry?

Filter Out Unique Records

Jan 8, 2008

I have a very basic table of customers. In one column there is duplicate data. I guess in most cases an Excel user would only want to filter the table to show the unique records only. In my case I want to do it the opposite way round, to delete the unique records so I have multiple occurrences of strings that appear in that one column. I've used the "Conditional Formatting" trick, which is great = COUNTIF($G$1:$G$44000,G1)>1 highlights all of the strings that appear more than once. What I'd like to do from there though is to either just have that data, and to remove the unique records.

Either that, or.. is there some way to have a field/column which shows "True" or "False" if such a string has appeared more than once in a column. Auto Merged Post;I forgot to mention.. the reason I'd want a column of "True" and False" would be because then I'd have the ability to sort/group the data into all the recurring records and all the unique ones. I'd then be able to do away with the unique ones by just copying the recurring ones.

Automatically Filter For Unique Records Only

Mar 15, 2007

I know how to use an Advanced Filter to sort for Unique Records Only and copy them to a new column, but I am looking for a way to do this automaticly everytime I update my worksheet.

I have a worksheet that populates an e-mail distribution list based on what you imput. Some e-mails are duplicates and I would like to eliminate them automatically before I Concatenate them into a single cell.

I imagine this could be easily done using VBA, but I am not firmiliar with writing any code so it is above my head.

Remove Duplicates :: Advanced Filter, Unique Records Only

Jan 14, 2010

I'm having a problem deleting duplicates from list in excel. I’ve attached a sample. I’ve tried the following:

1-Advanced Filter, Unique Records Only

2-Remove Duplicates function in Excel 07.

3-Pivot Table

4-Colour Conditional Formatting, sorting by colour

5-B2=IF(A2=A3,”Dup”,”Not-Dup”). The entire column returns “Not-Dup”

6-I’ve tried to resolve using the fix shg & teylyn suggested to Hillto in this thread, but am unable to get the ‘Numeric’ Keypad to appear in the ‘Find’ Function.

Auto Filter Macro

Sep 22, 2008

Sub Custom3()
Range("A785:BW1455").AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:="a"
Range("A785:BW1455").AutoFilter Field:=3, Criteria2:Range ("N").value
End Sub

Is Field 2 referring to Column B? So if I want to filter on the 9th row heading (going from left to right), my Field: = 9?

In the example above, the 1st criteria revolves filtering on dates with the goal of exceeding a certain date (i.e. > 1/1/08). Is there a way to reference the cell (which is in another workbook which is already open) in the criteria?

Auto Filter Controlled By A Macro

Aug 6, 2007

I'm trying to set up a macro to to run and control the AutoFilter in my Excel Spread Sheet. Essentially, all i want to be able to acheive is, instead of inputting the cryteria myself in the auto filter, i want the macro to select the cryteria from a specific cell.


Running the autofilter, normally you would select "equals or grater than" option and you would input a figure then click the "or" option then input "equals or less than" and a new figure and then click ok. This would sort the range; see the example macro...

Selection.AutoFilter Field:=10, Criteria1:=">=01/09/207", Operator:=xlOr _
, Criteria2:="<=31/09/2007"
ActiveCell.Offset(774, -1).Range("A1").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-15
End Sub

What i want to beable to do is to run a macro which will do the above but instead or requiring the user to input the range cryteria for the filter it would point to a cell to get the value from.

' test1 Macro
' Macro recorded 06/08/2007 by Nigel M Bailey
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=10, Criteria1:="> Cell A2", Operator:=xlOr _
, Criteria2:="< Cell A3"
ActiveCell.Offset(774, -1).Range("A1").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-15
End Sub

In doing this i can validate the selection field and just add a search button which then will be perfect!

Unique IDs For Records Run Each Week

Jul 19, 2013

We have our new employees fill out a form with name, address, tax info, etc. each week. (They all do it at the same time.) I then get 20 PDFs and export all the data to a CSV. We now want to import that CSV into our payroll software. However, the payroll software requires a unique ID for each employee.

So, we'll have this CSV each Monday, and each Monday, I need to "continue" the unique ID. So if this past Mondays started with 1000 through 1020, then next week, when I export, I want to start those records at 1021 and end at 1040. Then the following Monday, 1041-1060, etc.

Is there a way I can keep a record of what IDs are used and continue from that point each week?

Sequencing Unique Records

Feb 18, 2008

I am working on a data integration and have transactional data sets with multiple columns of data. In reviewing the data, I can see that based on values in 2 different columns, I can identify unique transaction records. The data is already sorder by transaction # and date. Creating a pivot table gives me back summary info for header records (I can get unique header records based on a concatenation of the trx # and Date), but I am having a difficulty obtaining uniqueness for the line items. The id that I created for purposes of header record summation means nothing from a user standpoint and I need to come up with more meaningful info.

What I have and what I want is...:

Tranaction#DateWhat I want is…15801911/23/2005015801911/23/2005015801911/23/2005015801911/22/2005115801911/22/2005115801911/22/2005115801911/22/2005115801911/22/2005115801912/12/2005215801912/12/20052

If I can get the data defined like that, then I can concatenate the trx# and the increment to block out the transactions into individual transactions.

Count Of Records With Filter

Mar 22, 2007

I have a challenge when using autofilter.

In the attached file I have sales reps with sales numbers.

I found out from Ozgrid to use subtotal formule in C2 to sum only lines visible. Ozgrid, thx a lot for that input.

However, in cell C3 I want to count number of records, but when filtering sales rep "A", then formula "counta" still counts all records, i.e. 27.

What formula should I use to count only visible records, e.g. 7 records for sales rep "A"?

Filter & Move Records

I have a spreadsheet with two sheets. One with car sales on and 1 with cars that have been sold on.

In the sheet that contains cars if a car has been sold i type sold in the price field and move it to the sold sheet. This is done by cut and paste. This is very time consuming as you can imagine.

Is there a way i can create some sort of if function that when i click a button searches for all records that have the word sold in it and moves it to the correct sheet?

Extract Unique Records From Table?

Feb 13, 2014

I am trying to populate a tab with all the unique values from a data table. For example, list all the SKUs, SKU Names, Buying Groups, etc. for "Owl Filled Candles" on the "COLLECTION - SKU" tab. For reference, the "VENDOR - SKU" tab works perfectly. I want the COLLECTION tab to do the same thing as the VENDOR tab. The only difference is the VENDOR-SKU tab is pulling data based on a Vendor's name in a drop-down list in B3 and the COLLECTION tab is pulling data based on the Collection name in a drop-down list in B3.

I tried to just copy the tab and reset the reference cells but that isn't working.

Unique Records In A Column With A Twist

For example, the first record is a white dog, so at that point there is 1 category of dog, next is a brown dog, so there there is now 2 categories etc.

I initially tried to adapt an array formula 1/COUNTIF($B$2:$B8,$B$2:$B8) but this wont quite do the trick.

ADVANCED: Extracting Unique Records

Oct 25, 2006

At the moment i am having great trouble taking two sets of records, comparing the two based on certain criteria and then extracting any records (rows) that do not appear twice, that is unique records.

So here it is:

I have two lists of sales.

1. our list from our point of sale system with order numbers and other details, entered by the sales agent.

2. the company that provides the products we sell for them sends us a list of these sales back to us from their end so we can see outcomes of these sales, that is the progress of the order, like cancelled, accepted, etc

The two lists need to be compared to see what sales are missing from either one..

so, I could colour the second list RED and the first list GREEN and add the second list underneath the first list (on the same sheet) and then sort by ORDER NUMBER, which would provide a red, green, red, green, red, etc pattern and i could easily identify sales that are unique, but there are so many thousands of sales this manual process is impossible.


Here is an example of the data i am using:


the numbers do NOT have the .. - or + next to them, thats just there to show you what list each is from.

so as you can see the order numbers with ".." next to them are reconciled, in that they have a partener record and do not need to be shown at all..

and the order numbers with "-" next to them are from our list

and the order numbers with "+" next to them are from THEIR list

i want to end up with a list like this:
