Display AutoFilter criteria after filtering using VBA in Microsoft Excel

In this article, we will create a macro to display the criteria used in auto filter.

Raw data consists of client details, which includes Name, Phone number, Email id and Company name.

ArrowRawData

 

We have applied a filter in the Company column and now we want to determine name of the complany on which the filter is applied.

ArrowFilterData

We will click on “Separating filter data” button to get criteria for which the filter is applied.

ArrowOutput

Code Explanation

IntRow = Range(“A10″).CurrentRegion.Rows.Count + 12

The above code is used to get a row number, where output should be displayed.

ActiveSheet.AutoFilter.Filters(IntCol) .On

The above code is used to check whether the filter is applied on the particular column.

For Each StringValue In .Criteria1

MainString = MainString + Mid(StringValue, 2) + “|”

Next

The above code is used to create a string which consists of all the criteria values, used in the filter.

Range(“A10″).CurrentRegion.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy _

Cells(IntRow + 1, 1)

The above code is used to copy visible rows to the specified destination.

 

Please follow below for the code

Option Explicit

Sub FilterCriteria()

'Declaring variables
Dim IntRow, IntCol As Integer
Dim MainString, StringValue As Variant

'Initializing the row and column number
IntRow = Range("A10").CurrentRegion.Rows.Count + 12
IntCol = 1

'Looping through all the cells until blank cell is encountered in the 10th row
Do Until IsEmpty(Cells(10, IntCol))
    
    With ActiveSheet.AutoFilter.Filters(IntCol)
        'Checking whether filter is applied on the column
        If .On Then
            
            MainString = "Filter On Column no. " & IntCol & " on values : "
            
            'Creating text which consists of values used in the filter
            For Each StringValue In .Criteria1
                MainString = MainString + Mid(StringValue, 2) + "|"
            Next
            
            'Assigning value to cell
            Cells(IntRow, 1).Value = MainString
            
            Exit Do
            
        End If
        
    End With
    
    IntCol = IntCol + 1
Loop

'Copying the visible cells to row after the filter data
Range("A10").CurrentRegion.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy _
   Cells(IntRow + 1, 1)

End Sub

  1. Not declared properly

    ‘Declaring variables
    Dim IntRow, IntCol As Integer
    Dim MainString, StringValue As Variant

    Should be

    ‘Declaring variables
    Dim IntRow as Integer, IntCol As Integer
    Dim MainString as String, StringValue As Variant

  2. I have a question. Is it possible to use VBA to display a list of filters in a range of cells. Example, I have a list of names in column C, cells C10 to C40 and I have the filter option applied for that range. I want to display the first name in the filter list in cell B1, the second in cell B2, third in cell B3, etc
