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).

Mouse Scroll WITHIN A Data Validation List & Option Macro Assistance

Jan 7, 2010

I'm trying to do a few things actually. I am somewhat a newb at programming, although I do understand how C++ and the coding works within Excel. To me, it's like the English language...knowing all of the vocabulary and formatting it right is important. If I don't know the vocabulary, I don't know what options I have.

This tool is being used in the call center I work in. It is to help eliminate repititious information used to notate accounts. I have attached a picture of what the tool looks like so you can have a better idea of what I'm working with. Here are a list of things I'm trying to do which I have searched and not found answers to:

1. I am trying to use a middle mouse scroll to scroll through validation list. This list information is located on a different locked tab. Basically, I have a few rows where a drop down selection can be made and it would be easier to scroll rather than manually moving the slider within the validation list.

2. As you can see, this "tool" an employee and I have created has many buttons. What I would like to do is to be able to click a button on the right and have it "stack" text within a single cell. In other words, if I click the button once, the text may be entered into the "actions taken" cell. If I click another button, I can have the option (or maybe a little "+" next to the button) to add this button's information to the end of the information already entered within the "actions taken" box. I've tried recording and using the keyboard and selecting "end" and then having the text added, but it didn't work. I've seen "loop" VBA code, but I don't want something to repeat, I want it to stack in the cell when clicked manually.

I'm sure there is a way to make the tool much better using VBA code and not use Excel, but I don't have an extensive knowledge of Excel to do something like that. I'm a very fast learner and understand how the coding works, so if you have an idea which may help, and you understand what I'm trying to do here, please provide your .02.

Basically, it's used so the Customer's name and phone number are entered manually, and then just about everything else is automated by the use of the buttons on the right. If I could get the 2 above options to work, it'd be perfect. I just figured out I could eliminate screen flicker and hide the macros working by using:

Filter Based On 2 Inputs Or Option And Copy The Date To Next Sheet One After The Other

Sep 25, 2008

I have some data in sheet1 with 10 columns and 5000 rows.
I want to filter the data with 2 criterios.

When I go to 4th column and Click custom filter, I will give one criteria and select "or" and give another criteria. SO I will get the result in sheet1, I need to copy the data and paste the same in sheet 2 with the header.

The problem is, I need to filter more than 20 times giving the criteria and copy the result and paste in sheet 2 one after the other.

So i need a macro to solve this time consuming work.

I just paste the two criteria either in a text box or some cells and run the macro. the macro has to filter the data in sheet1 based on my input.( that is criteria1 or criteria 2) and the result should be pasted in sheet2 with the headers.
Again I delete the values in my input cell, and paste the new values, and run the macro, that result should be pasted after the first result, with the header. (would be great if that is pasted leaving one row above, that is if the first result is pasted in sheet 2 till 10th Row, then the send result should be pasted in 12th row and so on..

the similar kind of question with some changes, I posted in the below link with

Macro To Filter Out Data For Five Regions

Jun 24, 2006

I've a workbook in which I run an excel macro to filter out data for five regions W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, the macro creates five sheets (w1, w2, w3, w4, w5) and places them in the same workbook along with the original master sheet called "west".

The data in all the sheets is layed out in an identical fashion except that the the number of rows in each sheet will differ depending on the number of records for each region in the master sheet "west".

I was looking for some vba coding to automatically add sum totals in two columns (I & J) for all the five region worksheets.

The first record always begins from row 4, in all the sheets.

so as an example W1 sheet could have a sum formula in I20 = Sum (I4:I8)
and in COl J as Sum(J4:J18). Row 19 is a blank row, and the intention is to leave a blank row just before placing the sum total in all the sheets.

W2 will have the same starting range but might differ in how many rows to sum .

And so on for the 4 remaining region worksheets in the workbook.

Using Macro To Operate Filter On Variable Data?

Feb 28, 2014

I have a written a macro to populate a filter criteria with a comma separated list, but the filter fails to work as each individual item on the list needs to be surrounded by speech marks (") and I don't know how to do this.

This may not be an actual vba issue?

The list I am using is derived from =SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(BK9&" "&BK15&" "&BK21)," ",",") There are 120 different cells that this formula references that could be blank. The SUBSTITUTE TRIM functions allow me to just use the cells that have data in. But I can't seem to get the " symbols in there. (I've tried the TEXT function on the original cells, & this doesn't work.

AdvancedFilter (macro To Filter Some Data From One Sheet To Another)

Jul 8, 2009

I'm having with creating a macro to filter some data from one sheet to another. I used the "record a macro" function to get the code I've posted below but part of the code is always changing.

In my workbook I have a main sheet called "Data" and another sheet called "Parts". The code below does what I need it to do, but the problem is that the cell range (A2:I139) is not constant and may change depending on how many rows of information I import on the "Data" sheet.

What I'd like to have happen is either have a dialog box pop up and prompt me to select the cell range (I've tried using the Application.InputBox function but can't figure it out), or since the first cell will always be A2 and the last column will always be I, have excel automatically figure out the last row that contains data.

Exclude Unwanted Data After Macro Filter

Sep 9, 2006

I have a sheet for addresses (Column 1 = Name, Column 2 = Address line 1, Column 3 = City, Column 4 = Postcode) and I run a macro that Filters that data based on the the city to different Tabs. This works fine except that sometimes, once the data is filtered I will find one or two addresses on my new filtered sheets that I really wanted to exclude. As my main address Tab information changes regularly, Ideally, I would like to see the Item on the City filtersheet, Double click it, and this would have the effect of deleting it from the City filtersheet but also copying it to an "Exclusions" Sheet which I could use before I run my normal filter macro to filter out these bad addresses.

Trying To Build A Macro Filter Based On Data In Either Of Two Columns

Jul 31, 2008

I created a contact list that incorporates buttons at the top of the page to sort the data based on two customer type columns (thanks to Richard for help getting this far!).

I am attaching the file so that it will be easier to take a look. Four of the five macros are working fine but the second one ("All Clients") filters on the premise that "yes" is answered in either of the two customer type columns. In other words I am trying to show the records that have "yes" entered in either of these two columns, not necessarily both columns.

VBA Macro To Pull Data From 3 Closed Workbooks And Filter

Dec 13, 2013

What I want to do is pull data from columns A,B,C,D in 3 other closed workbooks (export.csv, export1.csv, & export2.csv) to my main workbook (Thunder.xlsm)and append that data in columns A-D on my main workbook. In addition I created a list of 10 names (but need to expand or delete from this list as personnel change) in Column O that I would like to filter the data in A-D. The names in the list must find the data I want to keep in column D, the rest I want to delete (not the entire row, just A-D for that particular row that does not match the criteria in column O, and shift those cells up).

I've attached a sample spreadsheet that will clarify what I am asking. I'm preferably asking for 2 macro's, one for the pull of data, and the other for the filtering.

Column A
Column B
Column C
Column D

Excel 2013 :: CF With 2 Option Buttons / Multiple Option Groups?

Sep 6, 2013

I have several option groups (Y & N in each) linked to cells to display TRUE / FALSE depending on which option is selected in each group. I have another cell which I want to apply conditional formatting to if EITHER Y or N is selected in all groups. At present I use COUNTIF to check for FALSE=0 in the linked cells which works if all the answers are Y. How do I apply CF if there is a mixture of Y & N (TRUE / FALSE) in all groups (I'm not sure if I've explained that well or not).

Option To Not Run Macro On Startup With Timer

Apr 14, 2014

I have a macro that runs when a spreadsheet is opened however i sometimes need it not to run. Rather then furiously hit escape i was hoping to get a dialog box that would prompt yes/no to run the macro and if an option was not chosen after a few second then to run the macro anyway (so basically only by clicking "no" would you stop the macro from running).

I found this code here that gives me the yes/no message box and the 5 second time-out to get rid of the message box, however if the message times out it doesn't run the macro. what i need to tweak to make it do so if no input comes from the user? [URL]

Mapped Driver Macro Option

Feb 3, 2009

I finally completed a macro that would loop through selected workbooks in a folder and pull results to be shown in a new workbook.

This works fine by using a worksheet where the files are listed and in a1 of the worksheet, the path to the folder.

We have one workstation on the LAN with restricted access to the server, and therefore has mapped drives. Therefore the path to the folder containing the workbooks is different.

How could I instruct the macro when invoked - so in the case of that workstation - if the macro cannot find the files at the path stated in a1 of the workbook, it is to try a different location (The folder containing the workbooks is actually Drive:T)

Run Macro By Option Button Selection

Dec 26, 2007

I have done much searching, found some relevant, similar postings, but I have not been able to make it work for my code. I want to have multiple option buttons and have a macro determine which one is selected. One similar posting had macros run from the clicking on the option button, but I want the macro to determine which is clicked and then return some functions. From my research...this is my code.

Sub temp()
If OptionButton1.Value = True Then
Selection = "OB1"
Else 'assuming two buttons and first is false
Selection = "OB2"
End If
End Sub

This gives me an "Object Required" error on the first line of the code.
