Creating An Automatic Filter

Jun 21, 2007

I am running Excel 2003.

In my Excel file, I have one worksheet with about 36 columns and 2500 rows of data.

I am looking for a way to create an automatic filter which will look at one column and filter out 13 specific phrases, placing the entire rows which contain the phrases in a new worksheet in the same file. Every row that does not contain one of the phrases I would like to place in another new worksheet in the same file.

I want to run this macro/add-in on multiple files.

Automatic Sort After Filter ...

Mar 21, 2007

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.

Excel 2007 :: Creating Automatic Sort Of Overall Rankings?

Feb 22, 2013

I am building a country ranking model which ranks several different macroeconomic indicators and applies a weighting to each of the indicators. I have an overall ranking column which is an average of all the ranks. The problem is whenever I change any of the individual indicator's weighting it obviously affects the country's overall ranking. Is there a way that the model can automatically "re-sort" the overall rankings without me having to manually click on the sort by smallest to largest filter each time?

PS I'm using Excel 2007.

Conditional Formatting And Automatic Filter By Color?

Dec 4, 2013

In the attached spreadsheet, I have a limit value which is used to set the color of other cells based on their values.

So if the value is greater than limit, the color is red.

When I change the limit, I do see the changes in color.

However, I also want to show only the red values.

Automatic Custom Filter On Dynamic Data

Nov 27, 2008

I need a function/macro that will find all rows that have a specified value in column A and extract selected columns to a new spreadsheet. More, I need it to do it for every value in column A.

I would also like it to skip creation of new worksheet if value in selected row and column is null.*

I've been trying to combat this problem with advanced filters, which helped, but due to size of the data and range of values in column A it takes an entire day to process manually. Because the data is exported to another program after it's processed, it can't stay in the same sheet, also, linking back to the original sheet doesn't work because the data changes all the time.

Automatic Auto Filtering: Filter The List And Have A Box For Users To Type In Text

Aug 25, 2006

I have a list of a couple of thousand (and more) individual items. I want to filter the list and have a box for users to type in text (there are no numbers) and the results will be seen automatically reducing in number as more text is entered. (Similar to the Windows HELP files )

eg, typing A (or a) will show all entries beginning with A (without pressing
"Enter" or similar
typing AB will show only entries beinning with AB
typing ABO will show .........I guess you will understand the idea.

I have tried various forms of Filter - Auto and advanced - but still cannot get the spreadsheet to do what I want. Unless I am not doing the Autofilter (or Advanced filter) correctly (I am still a relative beginner!) I still cannot find a way of simply adding letters to a cell or input box and the filtering takes place 'automatically' as the letters are added.

Creating VBA Code To Filter By Dates

Jun 3, 2012

I have a macro I am using that uses several date filters. There are filters for the previous month, previous 6 months, previous year, all dates in the future, etc.

Every month I have to edit the macro and change the dates in the macro so it remains accurate. Is there any way I can modify the macro so that the dates are stored in a cell within the workbook and not in the macro?

What I would like is to type the date ranges in a sheet within the workbook and have the macro look to those cells for the date filter instead of typing in exact date ranges within the macro. This way the actual macro code does not need to be modified every month. I would like to only have to change cells within the worksheet and not touch the macro code.

Creating Macro To Filter And Copy Data

Jun 19, 2014

I have a spreadsheet. This has columns begining with A to S (with data in it)

It has rows beginning on row 5 and goes down to 85 but it gets bigger every day.

I want to create a macro with several phases

Phase 1 - Select the rows I specify, ie pop up box to decide on the rows
Phase 2 - Filter down and select the rows in this selection where column K has a value (unselecting the rest)
Phase 3 - Copying Columns A, B, D, E, F, K, from the selection
Phase 4 - Pasting these columns into A, B, C, D, E, F, of the sheet the macro sits on....

Creating Custom Pivot Table Report Filter

Aug 8, 2012

I was wondering if it is possible to create a custom pivot table report filter? I would like to take an existing pivot table report filter and manually add values into it. I would like to do this because I have multiple pivot tables, some with the same values and some with different values and I have a VBA code from Contextures that applies a mass filter to all fields with the same name. So if i could manually add values into one report filter, I could filter from one location and have all my pivot tables update at the same time if they contain the value that i would like to filter by.

Advanced Filter Code - Criteria Range More Than 1 Row Breaks Filter

May 1, 2014

I found a great bit of Advanced Filter code that works great, and fixed a problem of clearing a cell breaking the filter.

But if I want to increase the criteria from 1 row to 2, so you can start to include And , Or operations, it breaks the filter. Even an attempt at a manual one fails, until you put the criteria range back down to one row, then it's fine again.

I've tried changing the Target Row to >2 but that didn't work. how to make the criteria range bigger, and no problems of breakage if you clear the cells? It makes for a very useful automated Advanced Filter.

Here's the code :

[Code] .....

Database = the named area of raw data.
DATA is the name of the raw data worksheet
The criteria range should be AZ1:BC3, but of course royally breaks it...

Excel 2013 :: Filter Date Using Timeline Filter

Dec 23, 2013

I just got into the world of PowerPivot, Excel 2013 and Pivot Tables and am in the process of creating a Dashboard which I will then be uploading to SharePoint 2013.

On top of page I added the new timeline filter which I've linked to my pivot charts. Now what I would like to do, is create an additional pivot chart which looks at whatever date range has been used in the timeline filter and subtract 5 years from that. So, when I select a date range of November 2013 - December 2013 in timeline filter, the additional pivot chart will show the details for November 2008 - December 2013. This is where I get stuck.

I'm using two SSAS cubes which I'm combining together in PowerPivot and then display in Pivot Tables and Pivot Charts.

Filter Results Of Primary Filter Sort

Feb 11, 2008

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.
