VBA Excel Code

Hi...

We have many speadsheets within our workplace that alot of people have access to.

These spreadsheets have many sheets (tabs) which all have auto filters set.

The problems we have are people are leaving the auto filters on and then when somebody else goes in the spreadsheet they are reporting wrong information because they havent relaised the filter is still on.

I have in place a macro that removes all filters upon opening the spreadsheet put this currently only works on the first (active) sheet.

The code i have at the moment is below:

     'put the autofilter back on if it has been removed.
    If ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode = False Then Rows(1).AutoFilter
     'error handle the showalldata part
    On Error Resume Next
    For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.ShowAllData
    On Error GoTo 0

Is there something i can change for it to apply to all sheets.

Thank You.

Actually, that should be:

   Dim ws As Worksheet
   For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Worksheets
      ws.Rows(1).AutoFilter
      ws.Rows(1).AutoFilter
   Next ws

when i use the code given it give me a Microsoft Visual Basic Error

Run-Time Error 1004

The command could not be completed by using the range specified. Select a single cell within the range and try the command again.

Behind the error it does work the filters have been reset.

Do you have header values in row 1 of each worksheet?

Then you shouldn't get any errors. Are there ANY worksheets in the workbook that do not have headers and which you do not want to be filtered?
