Get Value Of First Visible Cell Using Auto Filter
I'm using auto filter to gather information from a giant list. I'm able to use Subtotal function in Row(1) )to gather all the numbers for a person.What I havent been able to do is figue out a way to get the value of the person that I am auto filtering.
Row 1 contains my subtotal formula's
Row 2 Header Row
Row 3 Auto Filter Buttons
Row 4 All The Data
Column(A4:A65000)has the names of the people So when I use the Auto filter by Name how can I get the first visible cell name to show in (A1)?

Return Count Of Visible Rows After Auto Filter
I have tried and tried to get the VBA code working that will tell me the number of visible rows in an autofiltered set of data, but the result I seem to be getting is always "1". Below is the most simple form of the code that I am using (it is based on previous posts and tutorials on this site). (I have also attached a workbook with sample data and the code)
Set rnData = .UsedRange
. AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="5"
.Select 'demonstrate that the rnData range is valid
lcount = .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Rows.Count
Delete Visible Rows After Auto-Filter & Exclude Headings
I am asking if it is possible to delete filtered rows? With code.
What I mean is after setting a filter, then deleting all shown rows except row 1, (Titles)
I did a search but nobody seams to have asked this yet, so recorded it, but that did not seam to enlighten me much either.
Or is this the wrong approach, should I delete using a loop, using the filtered criteria as to say delete row, or move on to the next row?, this would be far more time consuming as when all can be deleted at once if possible of corse.
Changing Auto Filter Based On User Inputted Cell
I have a Workbook that has 2 worksheets, one called CALL QUERY and one called CALL LOG. On the CALL QUERY sheet, cell D9 is a user inputted cell with the cell validation set to list. The user uses the dripdown list to pick an office identifier (3-Letter Code).
On the CALL LOG sheet, I have info about individual calls. Column E has the 3-letter office identifier for each call.
I am trying to find a way to automatically auto filter the list on the CALL LOG sheet with the user input in cell D9 on the CALL QUERY sheet.
I was given the following (N2 is a cell on the CALL LOG sheet that equals the user inputted cell D9 on the CALL QUERY sheet)
Countif - Visible Cells In Filter Mode
I have values in cell B2:B50 with values such as Quality, Eng, Purchasing etc. When i go in Auto filter based on Coulmn A2:A50 (with July only) and count "Quality" manually under B2:B50, the answer is 26. But if I write formula Countif(B2:B50, "Quality") I get answer 41.
Is there a way to use Countif function, if I am in the Autofilter mode so as it counts only that rows which are visible under Autofilter and not ALL rows.
Hide Columns, Filter & Copy Visible To New Workbook
I have an Excel sheet with all client information...For clinical supervision I want my team members to open their own "Supervision.xls" and click a button...this button will open "Client.xls" and select "Client info sheet"...It will then hide rows c,d,g & f...it will then filter column "e" based on the specific caseworkers name ( say "Joe") and copy only the visable columns back to their "supervision.xls" Values only (doesn't effect the colour formating of Supervision.xls) then close "Client.xls"

Auto Filter Macro
Range("A785:BW1455").AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:="a"
Range("A785:BW1455").AutoFilter Field:=3, Criteria2:Range ("N").value
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.

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 Won't Sort

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"
Looping Through Auto Filter Data - VBA
I have column A containing either "Correct" or "Incorrect".
I have another column D which also contain same values "Correct" or "Incorrect".

All the above is done using VBA.
Now, I want a code to convert the value in column A from "Correct" to "Incorrect", only for the rows retured by auto filter.

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.
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 _
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 _

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?
Copying Data From Auto Filter

Auto Filter To Apply To My Data

I was wondering If you would guide me on the If statements so that I could create a macro that works?
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.:
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.
Display Chosen Auto Filter Value
I am using the follow Array formula to display the value selected in an Autofilter:

I have recorded the following macros but need to fine tune them. In Field 1, I would like to be able to have criteria 1 be “=>” the value in cell “D9” instead of “160”. Likewise criteria 2 needs to be “<=” the value in cell “D10” instead of “170”. Fields 2 and 3 refer to columns “E & F” so they would be respective cell values.

Auto Updated - Filter Unique Records
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?
Auto Filter Then Move Subtotal To Another Sheet
I have 4 coloumns: Barcode, Date, Qty, Intials. The products will be scanned and the above cells will be populated via a VBA code. What the problem is that in the Barcode column - a product may be scanned on several different days, each entry may have a different Qty value. So how can I autofilter to show the various barcodes and get the total value of Qty (subtotal) and then transfer this value into a new sheet showing the relevant barcode and subtotal Qty?
Auto Filter Very Slow To Return Results
i have a work book of 12 sheets, the two main sheets 1+2 have 5000+ rows. by 30 columns. each row column b is a site number in ascending order(up to 4 for each site) so auto filter select = to site 5 about 10 seconds later i get the result of 3 sites try site 846 30 odd seconds later up pops the result. so i copied the sheet to a new work book and tried and it's nigh on instantaneous. next step
copied sheet paste special values into new sheet in same original workbook
and tried filter on that still slow as ever, thing is this book around 8meg and i cant for the life of me work out why ive cleared excessive formats and reset last cell on each sheet. there is a vlookup from sheet 1 to 2 for each site to return serial numbers. i have tried it in vba by turning autocal off/on but still no difference.
Custom Auto Filter Command Syntax
How can I perform a custom autofilter operation on the Column A data shown below that will filter out any cell that does not follow a "#.#.#" format. In other words I only want to see Level 3 paragraph numbers that contain two periods and suppress out all the other levels (variations containing 3 or more periods). I tried the following syntax in the custom aotofilter field with no success - "^#.^#.^#"
Automatically Re-Apply Auto Filter When Data Changes
Setting up all 50 states was not so bad, and I tried a Pivot Table but I have very little experience with them and could not figure out how to show only the nonzero states. So, I looked up how to filter the pivot table and discovered I could just filter the state data without the pivot table.
So, I put all 50 state abbreviations in one column. In the next column I put countif formulas to count how many customers came from each state. (In the meantime, I learned how to use an indirect formula to pull the state ID from the first column and copy it down and have the formula advance for each row... cool!) Then, I filtered the columns on the count twice. First, in descending order; then, without the zeros.
However, the weak side of the filter is that it does not automatically update when a new state is entered. I have to go and manually filter again. So, is there a way to get the filter to update dynamically? I know that a pivot table is dynamic but I have a lot to learn and I can probably browse around and figure out how to show only the nonzero states. Once I learned that, would it dynamically update when a new state is added?

Apply Auto Filter To Active Range

Add Auto Filter (unique Records) Option To Macro
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).
