Filter With Formula: FILTER A Range And Display The Unique Items, One Below The Other, WITHOUT Blank Cells
Feb 10, 2008
How can I FILTER a range and display the unique items, one below the other, WITHOUT blank cells - with only a FORMULA. What I came up with is shown in the attached WB. I would like to present the countries like in C11:C15.
As shown in the sample attachted Excel spreadsheet, I have a UserForm set up to display 2 colums of the range "Elist" using a ListBox. The Userform is called by a Button. I want my UserForm to display subsets of the "Elist" range thus restricting the users choices based on the results of a Filter operation performed on the Elist range. I wrote some filtering code that does select my intended subset of "Elist". I then use the initialize event of UserForm to set the RowSource of the ListBox to "Elist" hoping to display the filtered subset of "Elist". However, the ListBox continues to display the full range "Elist", not the desired filter subset.
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 :
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...
I am looking for some code that will use A,B,C as filters to find duplicate cells, and if duplicate found, there should be deleted the duplicated row (but not only the row from a,b,c column, but the whole 8 cells from that row - A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H).
As filter I would like to be used A,B,C columns.

I have a large array of data which I'm filtering out and copying to a new spreadsheet using an advanced filter. I have 2 filter criteria, one works... the other doesn't.
The second criteria is supposed to filter out rows that have blank cells in column C or D. I tried various things:
a. at first I tried following: Column header: Name |Surname Criteria: <>"" |<>""
b. since it didn't work I tried that Column header: Name |Surname Criteria: =<>""""" |=<>"""""
I also tried <>0 and <>null with absolutely no joy.
c. once I figured out that doesn't work either, I tried: Column header: (empty) Criteria: =OR(NOT(ISBLANK(C2)),NOT(ISBLANK(D2)))
now, the last one did have some effect, most of the empty-celled rows have been filtered out. However the filter persistently picks up ONE row that has blanks in column C2 and D2. I checked the data to check if the cell is really blank and it's as blank as it gets.
Obviously, I need help. It's been 3 days and I still can't figure out what's wrong with my filter. Is there a way of fool proofing the criteria, so that it will filter out all cells that are or appear to blank?
I have a list of about 200 companies in column a. Columns B, C, D, E, etc. list revenues for 2005, 2006, 2007, etc. The problem is not all of the years have values. Is there a way to filter out the companies that have a blank cell for any of the years? For example, if company 1 has a blank in 2007 can I filter it out, even if all of the rest of the revenues are filled in?
I have a spreadsheet which is used by users unfamiliar with Excel. They are using the filter to select records, however when this is used some records appear which have no entry in the cells of that column. Can I overcome this? There is no data in the blank cells, other than a data validation drop down.
Is there any way to allow autofiltering and sorting even with locked cells within the range to be sorted? I've conditionally locked some cells based on user input, and at the end of my vb code I have allowsorting and allowfiltering. But I want to sort cells that are locked even after that. Does anyone know if that's even possible with VB?
I would like to filter between a date range. the dates i need to filter between are in cells A1 and A2. this range contains the start and end of month. It is referenced from another sheet in the same workbook (='Job List'!C2).
i want to filter; greater than or equal to A1 and less than or equal to A2. How I can do it using the advanced filter method. My data range is C2:C9.
I've created a PivotTable using VBA that contains hundreds of PivotItems, which would look bad when a PivotChart is made.
I'd like to set the PivotTable to make visible only the first X items (let's say 10). How would I do this in VBA?The macro recorder gives me the name of the PivotItem, but this varies so I'd like to use an index:
I have created a spreadsheet copying and pasting data from other workbooks. When I select filter it all looks right but there is no items except select all which is unchecked, when I check it still nothing. I have added a screen shot of the sheet.
I'm running reports in one workbook on different types of spend for 12 business units using 1 worksheet containing the raw data, and 6 other sheets with pivot tables showing different levels of detail.
I've used simple VBA to prepare to standardise the raw data and refresh all the pivot tables with no problem
I need to filter the data to show spend for specific business units. I'd like to do this using a listbox showing the units where I can select the unit(s) to report on, which in turn will only make the units selected visible on each table in the workbookwith no other intervention.
There is another thread on here (showthread.php?t=55041) that shows how to use the list box to control 1 pivot table on one sheet but I can't find anything which shows me how extend this to cover multiple tables over multiple sheets.
I have a spreadsheet that includes a column with location names and a column with location numbers. What I need to do is count the visible unique numbers and names (seperately) in a certain column when using a filter. I have found the formula to count the unique values and a formula to count the visible cells, but not a formula that does both.
I have two pivot tables, both of which source the same sheet of data. Each record in the data has two fields, Region ID of person and Region ID of facility, that reference the same list of Region IDs via vlookup (it's just numbers 1-12). Either one or both can be blank. One pivot outputs counts by person Region ID, and the other, by facility Region ID.
Using a combination of nested IF statements and vlookups, I tried making a third Region ID field that could be used as a slicer to control both tables, but what I end up with is an undercount in one of the tables. The only thing that works so far to output the correct counts is having two separate slicers, the facility Region ID being the slicer for one and the person Region ID being the slicer for the other. If the end user wants to see counts for one Region ID, they have to manually set one slicer equal to the other. But what we want is just for the end user to be able to control both tables just by pushing a single number, Region IDs 1-12.
I can make one of the slicers hidden but then how do I get the hidden slicer to automatically select Region ID values equal to the nonhidden slicer? Alternatively, I could somehow program a combo box or list to control the two different slicers, then the slicers would be hidden and the user would see only the combo box/list. (I guess in either of these alternatives, I could just use a report filter instead of a slicer; either way, I still have to get items in one to automatically select based on the user's selected items in another).
FYI, some of the options I looked up involved PowerPivot, which I do not have access to. VBAs/macros are ok.
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.
I have a long column of 9-digit numbers which represent the swipe-card-ID's of patrons accessing a parking facility. Most of them occur more than once, some of them many times. There is an operational rule that bars them from using the facility more than x times. (I can't implement this limitation in the parking software/hardware, or I would happily do so.)
So my question is, is there a way to process through that column, identifying each unique ID, and reporting any that occur more than x times?
