Auto Filter Won't Sort


For some reason I have a worksheet that won't sort stuff by Autofilter any more. I built it as a customer database but for some reason today I just can't get the names to ascend or descend. there is something simple I can check for, I can post an empety sheet if needed but right now I can't really post a list of all my customers info.

Filter Results Of Primary Filter Sort
I am in the process of making a database more efficient and am running into a problem with sorting data. I currently am trying to use AutoFilter to sort the data. When I want to then narrow the results further using the same column as the critical and there is nothing that matches the critical, I get everything from the entire database that matches that critical rather than what I want to see, which, in this case, would be nothing.

I have attached a sample file. In it, when All AF 1000 is run and then Selected MAC 2000 Wash is run, I want to see no results instead of seeing all MAC 2000 Washes from the original data set. I can do it using IF/THEN but I am looking for a faster way to do it.

Sort / Filter Rows: Sort A Range Of Row
I would like to ask if it is possible to sort a range of row? What I mean is, if I sort like Row 1, the entire block of row 1 will move as well? Like if i have column A to F, then row 1 of column A to F will move together at the same time.

With Sort And/or Filter
I have two columns of numbers. The first column is numbers of customers seeking specific products. The second column is of total competitors for the products. I am wanting to find a sort or filter that will show me the "sweet spot" where I can "weight" the best products that have greatest seekers but lowest competition.

Here are a few examples of what I am working with:

Product a - People seeking product: 167 / Competitors providing product: 5740
Product b - People seeking product: 111 / Competitors providing product: 133000
Product c - People seeking product: 74 / Competitors providing product: 105000
Product d - People seeking product: 60 / Competitors providing product: 109000
Product e - People seeking product: 33 / Competitors providing product: 22200

(I have many more products than this, this is only a small example)

So what my goal is is to run through all my data and find the most ideal products (the "sweet spot") that have greatest number of seekers/potential customers with the least competition.

Is there a way to sort this? Or do I use a filter of some type. My knowledge of Excel is pretty minimal.

VBA Macro To Filter And Sort
I'm tryin to set up a macro to filter and sort and when I record the macro correctly it does not run properly.

I have detailed info below:

I created a sheet "Met Logbook" which contains all links to the source "Master Logbook". This master logbook has a lot of info added daily and we add info at the top of the sheet (we insert new rows every time at the top for different reasons). So what happens is the master logbook always changes its cells (when inserting new rows at the top, all the cells change row number). So I have just linked all the cells and more that we may be using in the Met logbook. This is why I need to filter and then sort the Met logbook (since there will be so many blanks, unuseful info and in the wrong order). (It will be in the wrong order because the "master logbook" has newer info at the top and I have more than one sheet of info for the master logbook) (so my links in the met logbook are somewhat out of order).

So what I need is to have code to filter column B with:

and column H with "Blanks", then I need to sort column A (rec'd) in descending order (so that newer info will be at the top). I will post my Met Logbook sheet on my second post since its a little large.

Automatic Sort After Filter ...
I'm trying to write one macro that filters a set of data based on 2 criteria and then automatically sorts the filtered data by date. The filter works fine but when I then try to write code that handles the automatic sort, I get the following message when I run the macro: "Run-Time Error 1004: the sort reference is not valid. Make sure that it's within the data you want to sort, and the first Sort By box isn't the same or blank."

I realize it would only take one or two more clicks to sort this data manully after the macro is run, but the lazy person in me is trying to eliminate this step. Does anybody have any suggestions as to why the sort is not working? I parsed basic sorting code, but it hasn't worked. The other part of this that is causing me trouble is that the number of filtered rows will vary, so I'm only needing to sort the visible range.

Auto Filter Macro
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?

Limit To Auto-Filter
I have a worksheet with 24k rows. Column C Contains the State, Column D contains the city.

Right now I am looking for accounts in chicago and surrounding cities..if I use Autofilter and just look for the city on the drop down..sometimes it isn't there..but if I choose the state (IL) and THEN look at the auto filtered cities..it's there.

Is there a limit to the number of unique values that an auto-filter can show?

Auto Filter The Record
I have a spreadsheet that i am trying to filter. I have tried auto filter but
it is not working. What I have is a coumn with a part number and then 4
columns with other numbers. I am trying to pull out the part numbers that
have a 1 in any of the other 4 columns. below is a sample of my spreadsheet.
A number 1 may show up in column A for one part number and a number 1 may
show up in column C for another part number. I need to be able to put all of
the part numbers that have 1 in one of those columns together and so on. This
is for cycle counts for inventory so the 4 columns represent the week that
those part numbers need to be counted.

wk wk wk wk part #
1 13 26 39 19080
2 14 27 40 100039
4 16 29 1 101007

Auto Filter On Selected Row
After posting a thread regarding sorting issues with multiple columns (under the thread heading "Bulk Sorting" I have conceded that unless I have a sort filter on every column I will not be able to keep data in respective rows when sorting.
My new plan of attack is to insert an empty row (it will be row 13) and apply auto filter across every column (not what I wanted visually but no other option).

Is there a way that I can do this at row 13 on an almost completed sheet? I may just be dumb but I can't stop the filter applying itself to row 1. If I select the whole of row 13 the auto filter or "right click - apply filter" options aren't available. If not I could start a fresh sheet. Is there a way to copy and paste a large amount of cells with different width columns into a new worksheet?

Auto Filter Compatibility
I have a spreadsheet created in Excel 2003. All the non-entry cells are locked. When I protected the sheet I ticked the option for the auto filter to work. The problem is when I send the spreadsheet to my user - she uses Excel 2000. The auto-filter buttons do not work for her but they do work for me. Is there anyway round this? I need to have the sheet locked (apart from the entry cells) but I also need the auto filter function. I've attached the spreadsheet I'm talking about. The protection password is set to "password"

Auto Sort
I am trying to figure out how to auto sort information on a spreadsheet so that when update notes are added by date at the bottom of the list, they are automatically sorted (moved) to the top of the list so the latest update is shown first. I am pretty clueless when it comes to macros although I have given it some attempts after reading other posts without success. I am including a copy of the spreadsheet. The info that I need sorted starts at B43:E43 and goes to B104:E104. That same sort info would then be used for the similar info to the right of this one. For example everything on the line B43:E43 would move together.

Auto Filter Controlled By A Macro
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.

Example...

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!

Auto Filter Paste Error
I'm running Excel 2003 and I have a workbook with an Auto List in Column G. When I attempt to paste a row of data I get the following message.

The operation is not allowed. the operation is attempting to shift cells in a list on your worksheet.

To work around this, I have to convert the list to a range, copy the data and then reapply the Auto List.

Is there another way to work around this or will I have to create vba code or record a macro?

Auto Filter - Data Format
I am having trouble with using the auto filter, and I suspect it is due to my data format.

I am importing data from an outside source (I have no control on how the data is output). The data in the column I am concerned with contains various formats, such as numbers, letters, and a combo of the two. e.g.:

12345
sample
sam123ple

I have been taking the entire column and formatting it as text to make all of the data consistent. The problem I see comes when I go to use the autofilter, to say custom>begins with "123". The value 12345 does not show up in my filter. However, if I double click the cell 12345, then hit enter, and re-run my autofilter, it shows up.

Does anyone know the reason why this double-click-enter method forces Excel to recognize the value? And is there a way to mass-produce this command for the entire data set? Right now, I'm up to 5000 lines of data, so to do this on each would take a while.

Auto-sort In Worksheet
I have a worksheet in Excel which contains scores for a quiz I am organizing. The rows contain the team names, the columns the scores per round per team.
I would like to have the worksheet automatically sort the columns in descending order (so that the winner will come out on top after the quiz has finished), everytime I change something (everytime a score is updated). I can't find anything in Excel which would allow me to do that, so I'm guessing it's only possible in VBA? Unfortunately, I don't know anything about VBA, so I'm stuck.

These are the ranges I would like to have sorted, in order of priority:

Row 1 is the row with the column titles (Round 1, Round 2,...).
C2: C26
N2:N26
M2:M26
L2:L26
K2:K26
J2:J26
I2:I26
H2:H26
G2:G26
F2:F26
E2:E26
D2:D26

VBA Auto Sort The Column
I have the below small code which auto sorts information in column A & B but I am having trouble trying to get it to sort from row 3 and not sort the first 2 rows. The first row is the column header the second row I want left blank and then sort after that.

Plus at the moment after I enter something into column A it auto sorts itself but what I would really like to do is have it commence the auto sort after I have entered information in column B and pressed "enter". Because at the moment I enter info in column A then it auto sorts itself then I must then find it and then enter the info into column B.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim rg As Range
Set rg = Columns("A") 'Column containing names to sort
If Intersect(Target, rg) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Range("A:B").Sort key1:=rg.Cells(1, 1), order1:=xlAscending, header:=xlGuess

Auto Sort Set Range
I know that I could just click sort, decending, "points" etc but I figure there must be a way of it auto updating.....

Please see the attached file - I have attempted doing it with Ranking Formula but forgot that it would just give me error messages when two have the same points so I got rid of that.

Have tried doing it with other formula found on this website and others, however I appear to be stuck. I might be doing it wrong but as I'm not manually putting in the "points", they are being worked out with =( SUMPRODUCT((H4:H16={"W","D","L"})*({3,1,0}))+58) for example, it does not move their position.

What I would like it to do:

1. People select from drop down list whether they think the team will W, D, L
2. The Table to the right should automatically change the points dependant on the result
3. The Teams position should change automatically in line with their new points total.

Auto Sort Of Data
As you can see from the attached spreadsheet. I have a page called Pattern Etch where we enter the data for all the processing done in a single machine.
Each device type is slightly different, and therefore has a different calculation fasctor for its etch time. This all weorks fine. What I had previously was another spreadsheet with the pages b and g in it. This is where the factors are calculated and updated from.

I'd like to make this update automatic, and suspect the easiest way is to combine the two spreadsheets, as in the attached version. Can the sorting of the data from the patternetch page to the apprpriate pages, b and g be done automatically? If so can it be done for many pages as I have cut down the spreadsheet, I actually have 50 variants, each will need its own page (as for b and g).

Filter & Sort Multiple Columns With Single Criteria
I have a spreadsheet with multiple columns. The first column defines a "route", and the next two list "start" and "end" cities for that route. The fourth column lists the length of each route. There are only a limited number of cities, so the same entries appear in both "start" and "end" several times. I would like to use Autofilter to sort the list for every appearance of a given entry in either "start" or "end". Is there a way to make Autofilter sort mutiple columns simultaneously?

I could achieve the desired end result with Advanced Filter, but I want something with the ease-of-use and immediate update/response of Autofilter. Advanced Filter requires explanation (as well as lots of clicking and typing) whereas Autofilter is self-evident. I also want to avoid VBA Macros as they are not well-understood by the users who will use this spreadsheet (and any VBA Macro will require very specific input to work properly.) Is it possible to do what I want? Or is Advanced Filter / VBA the only way to do it?
