# Maximum Number Of AutoFilter Criteria

Feb 6, 2008

I've done some searching, but haven't been able to find a reference anywhere to:

what is the maximum number of criteria that autofilter will support?

## SUMPRODUCT With 2 Criteria, But One Is A Maximum Number Of Items To Include

Jan 14, 2009

I have no problems figuring out SUMIF or SUMPRODUCT with multiple criteria, but I'm trying to help someone with an issue that the second criteria is actually not all-inclusive.

Column B - Lots of numbers, the SUM range
Column C - Yes and No flags. Y or N

C1 = maximum number of matching items to include.

So, =SUMPRODUCT((C2:C100="Y")*(B2:B100)) sums up ALL the Yes rows, but the guy wants to restrict it to the last X matches, and put that X factor in C1. So if C1=5, only the last 5 Y matches are included.

## SUM MAXIMUM Or Index/Max: Count Number Based On The Maximum Time??

Oct 23, 2008

I was hoping that my formula would give me the count number based on the Maximum time (latest time) and the Name field...My result is a 0 instead of 62 (the correct answer).

Would a Index/Match/MAX function be more efficient?

## Autofilter Macro: Goto The Next Criteria Down Until Certain Criteria Is Reached

Oct 22, 2008

I am trying to make an "intelligent" auto filter that with filter with increasing restriction until a certain criteria is met.

The list runs from A5:G20. In coloumn G is the number of hours associated with each event. And in A1 I have the percentage of items showing/whole list so it I have 15 rows on the list, and I filter so that only 5 are showing, cell a1=33%

How can I make a macro that will autofilter until the the a1=5%
Like having filter criter = equal or greater then 1 hour,
if a1 > 5%
Then criteria + 1 hour
If A1=<5%, then stop.

basically a seed criteria of 1 hour, adding 1 hour until the value in a1 = 5%

## Maximum Value Using Criteria?

May 19, 2014

I am working on the report where is have diffferent Inst Numbers (Column "C") and also Frame (Column "D").

Now i need to know the maximum Frames in (Column "F") for Instrument Number. I used below formulae but it takes much time get the output.

={max(if(C:C=C2,B:B))}

So i need easier way thru VBA Code where it automatically pulls the MAx Frames with the specified criteria.

## Maximum If With Multiple Criteria

Dec 17, 2009

I want to find the maximum in column C if Column A = b but I don't want the number if it equals 11 or 9. So, the answer should be 7, but I don't know how to create the correct formula..I'm sure I have to nest a couple of things into an array, but I just can't seem to get it to work.

ABC
a17
a34
b27
b711
b109
c93
c86
d78
e44
e92
e31
f27

## Match Criteria According To MINIMUM And MAXIMUM

Nov 27, 2008

I need a macro that will search MIN and MAX columns and identify which horse has the maximum number in both the MIN and MAX columns an example is highlighted yellow in the attached spreadsheet. If there is a selection i want the macro to keep the horse that matches the criteria along with the race date and time e.t.c (header) but delete all other horses in that race. If there are no selections that meet the criteria in a race i want it to delete all details for that race including headers and go to the next race.

## Return MAXIMUM Based On Criteria

Aug 13, 2008

i have a spreadsheet like the following

A B C
Country Revenue Month
1 UK 10 Jan
2 France 20 Jan
3 US 30 Jan
4 UK 25 Feb
5 US 35 Feb
6 France 5 Jan

and so on...

So where country = UK, France or US I want to retrieve the MAX revenue from all months and which month it was in. Eg UK max revenue was in Feb of 25. I am not sure how to apply the max formula with criteria. Is there any way to do this?

## Finding The Maximum Value Of All Those Meeting A Certain Criteria

May 7, 2005

Problem:
Range A2:C10 contains the login and logout times of various ID's.
Each ID could log in and out a number of times a day.
How could we find the first time a specific ID logged in and the last time that same ID logged out?

Solution:
For each of the ID's in range A2:A10, enter two Array Formulas.
To find the first login time (Column B) enter the following formula:
{=1/MAX((A14=\$A\$2:\$A\$10)*(\$B\$2:\$B\$10
To find the last logout time (Column C) enter the following formula:
{=MAX((\$A\$2:\$A\$10=A14)*(\$C\$2:\$C\$10))}

1 ______02:40___________03:10
2 ______00:15___________03:20
1 ______06:20___________09:30
3 ______09:14___________11:05
4 ______11:00___________19:30
2 ______04:05___________06:55
3 ______12:08___________17:17
1 ______10:00___________16:20

Need formula to match C1 to Sheet2 E:E and return the corresponding value from F:F into C2.

## Add Numbers In Column That Meet Criteria And Find Maximum Sum?

Dec 31, 2013

I'm developing a spreadsheet for a nonprofit that provides feedback on their major fundraiser/auction. I'm trying to create a formula in a cell that will look at the bidder #'s in column B and add the value of the their purchased items found in column C and return the number of the bidder that has the largest total value of purchases.

This can be done with a pivot table and give a table of all bidders, their total amount paid for items, and the number of items purchased.

## Identify/highlight Maximum Value Based On Multiple Criteria

Dec 4, 2009

I have a file with telemetry data for n individuals. For each individual I have data on a number of days, over the course of a couple of years. On any given day, I have from 1 to several "fixes" for an individual. Fixes range from 1 to 3, with 3 being the "best". Note that I do not necessarily have data for all individuals on a given day. What I want to do is extract the row with best fix for each individual, on each day for which I have data for that individual. If there is more than one best fix for an individual on a given day, then I want to choose the first best fix (temporally). Right now my data is set up with columns:

INDV DATE TIME FIX ....other attributes

INDV = unique code identifying the individual

The data is sorted by INDV, then by DATE, then by TIME.

I figured I could do this using nested IF statements, where "TRUE" would be added to a new column (e.g., HIGHFIX) in the row of the first highest fix on each day for each individual, but have not been successful in doing this. I've also tried conditional formatting. Again, no success here.

## Autofilter On More Than 2 Criteria

May 15, 2008

Say you have a long list of data, and you go to Data menu --> Filter --> AutoFilter

And then you want to use the Custom AutoFilter. Here's a screenshot:

Is there any way to do MORE than two autofilters?

## MSG Box Autofilter Criteria

Jul 23, 2009

Been looking at various options. Just want something to simply show the autofilter critera (1 & 2 or how every many there are) in a text box. The range being filtered is column A : M.

Basically taking this further, want to use the criteria of column C to lookup an email address e.g.

'C' is filtered by "Company 96"

Lookup "Company 96" from sheet2 range A:B, with column A containing name, and column B containing email address

## Macro - AutoFilter And Criteria

Aug 7, 2014

My problem is following: I have a list of data that are classified according to a particular character, and I want to copy (with auto filter through the macro) the relevant information to the appropriate place in the sheet where it belongs. That's no problem. The problem is that if I want to copy data, classified by a character that is not listed in the table (that is not in the filtering criteria), then all the data are copied to the appropriate place. But I do not want to copy in this case nothing. How should such a macro look like?

## Autofilter With Offset Criteria

Dec 4, 2011

This is the following code i have a problem with:

ActiveSheet.Range("\$B:\$J").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=Sheets("Report").Cell(0, -2).Value

I am trying to filter items on a sheet called "all the answers" and i want to look up a value on the sheet called "Report" to filter.

The cell i want to filter is two cells to the left of the active cell on that sheet.

## Autofilter With Multiple Criteria?

Oct 5, 2012

I have some data which I want to apply multiple criteria to for a particular column. Searched around on the internet and it would appear I should use an array and pass that to my criteria. What I can't find an answer for is how to say "does not equal any of the values within the array"

Code currently is:

Code:
Dim NumberFilter_Array(0 to 2)
NumberFilter_Array(0) = 2
NumberFilter_Array(1) = 9

[Code].....

I've tried variations for that in red but can't get it to work, how to correct the line in red to filter for none of the values in the array NumberFilter_Array?

## AutoFilter With Multiple Criteria

Nov 1, 2012

I am trying to use VBA to set an autofilter that hides all zeros in Column AL and then excludes all values in Column E that start with "312" or "502". For some reason I can't get this to work as expected, it still continues to display unwanted values in Column E.

HTML Code:
ActiveSheet.Range("\$A\$1:\$CS" & LastRow).AutoFilter Field:=5, Criteria1:=Array("312*", "502*")
ActiveSheet.Range("\$A\$1:\$CS" & LastRow).AutoFilter Field:=38, Criteria1:=Array("0")

Apr 30, 2014

Is there a way to add a dynamic number of criteria(based on user input) to an autofilter.

Code:
ActiveSheet.Cells(1, 1).AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:= dynamicfilters

## Use Cell As Autofilter Criteria

Aug 18, 2008

I have one master sheet of data, with a large number of fields and data.

I need to turn this master data into individual records, each record exisiting as an individual worksheet - lets call it a 'U'. The U is a template sheet which has calculations and lookups built into it to complete further information. The completed U's are then used by a number of people for different reasons. There are 3 main 'flavours' of these sheets which have slightly different uses.

I've gone from knowing nothing about macros to having learned enough about them in the last week or so to populate each individual sheet with the data, and save the new file in the location I want it to go.

What I want to do now is filter the fields displayed by the individual U sheets, as not every field is applicable to each 'flavour'. I've marked up the rows as to the appropriate flavour - e.g. Row 17 is applicable to 'P' 'F' and 'R' ( Cell which is auto filtered contains PFR), but Row 18 is only 'P' and 'F' (Cell contains PF).

I've gone through the master file and identified each entry as a the appropriate flavour - to summarise what I'd like to do now:

1) Automatically populate the template file with the relevant data. (which my macro will do)
2) Use an autofilter to filter the rows equal to the data in the reference sheet so these are the only ones displayed. Eg. Reference sheet says 'P', so I want to filter the U sheet where autofilter column contains the letter 'P'
3) Rename the file and save as my reference in the location I want it to (which the macro is doing).

Here's what I've got:

Range("CF3").Select
Selection.Copy
Windows("USS iss1.xls").Activate
Range("G158").Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=ActiveCell, Operator:=xlAnd

(where CF3 = the cell in the master data with the flavour in it, "USS iss1" is the template U file, G158 is a spare cell and Autofilter Field 1 contains the row reference which tells me which data applies to which flavours).

I've tried using the macro recorder, which when I paste the value in the autofilter/contains box records it as the value I've just put in rather than a copy of the reference cell. I've tried

Criteria1:=*ActiveCell*

and other variations on the same theme, but to no avail - I get "Compile error: Expected:expression".

## Show Autofilter Criteria

Apr 16, 2006

You posted this code and it works well

could u advise how to display just the criteria ie no heading, no :, no =, and when it displays the criteria could it fill the cell with a colour. When filter is set to "all" give a blank cell

This would over come lots complaints from operators not realizing that filters are on because they can not find the silly blue button.

Are microsoft aware of is and are they changing it in the new release.

## Autofilter With Variable Criteria

May 16, 2006

I'm actually trying to write a Macro that applies autofilters and the information just doesn't show! The autofilter is properly applied and everything, but the only visible row is the header. The code is the following.

mes = Month([M2])
filfecha = Range("M2").Text
Columns("E").AutoFit
Rows("1:1").Select
Selection.AutoFilter
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=5, Criteria1:=filfecha

## Autofilter Criteria From Textbox

Mar 5, 2007

I would like to do some search function. As I know, to have "contains" in criteria, I can simply add *. But then, the asterisk(*) doesnt work with forms. I want my user to put the word they are looking for in a form then the system will select from a different worksheet. Below is my coding and bold is my biggest problem.

company = Workbooks("CONTRACT").Sheets("Advanced Find"). Cells(9, 3).Value
Workbooks("CONTRACT").Sheets("Sheet2").Activate
Range("C3"). AutoFilter Field:=3, Criteria1:=*company*, Operator:=xlAnd
Sheets("Sheet2").Rows(3).Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
Selection.Copy
Application.WindowState = xlMinimized
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
End Sub()

## Comparing Autofilter Criteria

Mar 16, 2007

I want to write a VBA routine to compare the Autofilter criteria found on two different worksheets. If the criteria is not the same I will display an error message. The range the Autofilter is working on could be one to many columns. The criteria could be anything from selecting a value from the autofilter list to multiple columns using a custom autofilter with multiple conditions.

## Range Name In Autofilter Criteria

Jun 22, 2007

I'm trying to make the criteria in an autofilter bit of code be the value of a cell in my spreadhseet. I have named the cell and would like to reference the named range rather than the cell address if possible.

Exp = Range("ExpenseGroup")

Sheets("Sheet2").Select
Selection.AutoFilter Field:=2, Criteria1:=Exp
Sheets("KPICharts").Select
Range("A1").Select

ExpenseGroup is my range which is located on sheet "cntrl" cell "G5"

When I run my code it referes to line 1 and says" Function call on lefthand side of assignment must return a Varient or Object".

## Display Criteria Of Autofilter

Dec 31, 2007

I have the following code based on Multiple user-selected dropdowns. What I need to add is I believe a Volatile Application, where if the user chooses the option "ALL" OR leaves blank (doesn't pick anything from the dropdown,) the respective column does not get Autofilter applied. I have 6 different criteria, including a Start Date and End Date. So, the final result I'm trying to get is to have autofilter applied to only those columns for which the user selected a specific option.

Dim dDate As Date
Dim strDate As String
Dim lDate As Long
Dim rDate As Range

Worksheets("Data").AutoFilterMode = False
Set rDate = Sheets("Summary").Range("B3")

If Not IsDate(rDate) Then 'Check if valid
MsgBox "Non valid date and time"
Exit Sub
End If

## Maximum Number Of Fonts Per Doc?

Apr 24, 2007

I am using Excel 2003 and have a spreadsheet that lists 1521 fonts. I am using VBA and looping through the list of font names in column 1 and want to put an example of the font in column 2. I am trapping for error 1004 and using Resume Next. This works fine for 480 lines and then it just stops working. No error message or anything. The only thing I could think of is there might be a maximum number of fonts allowed per spreadsheete, but I would have though I would get an error.

## Autofilter More Than 2 Criteria On Strings With Wildcard

Mar 12, 2013

I am trying to autofilter more than 2 criteria, for example 3 criteria.

Below code works fine as the criteria are exact match strings

VB:
ActiveSheet.Range("\$A\$1:\$O\$25").AutoFilter Field:=7, Criteria1:=Array( _
"=apple", "=orange", "=grape"), Operator:=xlFilterValues

However below code does not work when the criteria are strings with wildcard "*"

VB:
ActiveSheet.Range("\$A\$1:\$O\$25").AutoFilter Field:=7, Criteria1:=Array( _
"=*apple*", "=*orange*", "=*grape*"), Operator:=xlFilterValues

I need a wildcard * indicating strings contains instead of exact match the criteria.

Data looks like this

Fruits
apple, orange, peach
orange, strawberry
banana, peach
grape, peach

After autofilter, any rows that contains one of the criteria(in this case orange, apple, grape) will remain.

## Storing Autofilter Criteria In A Range

Sep 17, 2013

I would like to know that is there any way of recording criteria when I filtered data.

For example; A1,A2,A3,A4,A5,A6,A7,A8,A9,A10 and A11

I have this data such as Data,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 (starting from Range A2). Now when I created auto filter as

VB:
ActiveSheet.Range("\$A\$2:\$A\$11" _
).AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:=Array("2", "3", "4", "5"), Operator:=xlFilterValues

And this criteria can be changed by the user anytime. Now for some reason sometimes I trigger a code which works under Function key(F8) and it refresh some data from the database. Just before it gets the data, it will remove the filter such as :

VB:
ActiveSheet.Range("\$A\$1:\$A\$11" _
).AutoFilter Field:=1

My problem is after I run my code (under F8), I want to filter back with the same criteria. Is there anyway that i record my criteria in any cell whenever I filter?
