Hi,

In an open workbook with multiple sheets, is there a way to select all sheets, and add a filter (Data - Fileter) at one time?

I am only able to one sheet at a time.

Thanks

No, the option is greyed out when you select multiple sheets.  You can do it through code though, with one click.

The below will add the autofilter to every sheet in the workbook for row 1.  If the autofilter is already applied it removes it.  So it's like a toggle on and off.
Sub ToggleAutoFilter()

    For Each wksht In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
        wksht.Rows("1:1").AutoFilter
    Next
    
End Sub

Open in new window
