Dear EE experts,

I'm trying to figure a way to filter data from an userform. I know that a filter can be added on any column, but what about doing this from an userform ?

Thanks for any help you can provide,

Hi Sid,

I'm happy to see you around and yes I have a sample file.
If you go to ''Sheet 3'', I've already added a button ''Filter Acctopid''. This button opens the form ''UserForm 2''

Thanks

Ok Try this. I added a button to that userform. I entered 03 in the textbox and it worked.

Sid

Code Used

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    On Error GoTo Whoa
    
    If Len(Trim(TextBox1.Text)) = 0 Then
        MsgBox "There is no value to filter"
        Exit Sub
    End If
    
    With Sheets("QUERY_FOR_GSL2").Range("$A$1:$BC$5")
        .Range("$A$1:$BC$5").AutoFilter Field:=15, Criteria1:=TextBox1.Text
        Unload Me
    End With
    Exit Sub
Whoa:
    msgbos Err.Description
End Sub

Open in new window

Oops, a small typo.

Just remove ".Range("$A$1:$BC$5")" from line 9

Thanks :)

Also one more thing.

In case you are unsure about the number of rows in Sheet "QUERY_FOR_GSL2" then use this code.

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    Dim lastRow As Long
    
    On Error GoTo Whoa
    
    lastRow = Sheets("QUERY_FOR_GSL2").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    
    If Len(Trim(TextBox1.Text)) = 0 Then
        MsgBox "There is no value to filter"
        Exit Sub
    End If
    
    With Sheets("QUERY_FOR_GSL2")
        .Range("$A$1:$BC$" & lastRow).AutoFilter Field:=15, Criteria1:=TextBox1.Text
        Unload Me
    End With
    Exit Sub
Whoa:
    MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub

Open in new window

Corrected it :)

If the number of rows change, I'll use the code you provided. For now, it's ok and I hope it will not go further more.

How I can add the other small part of code to go directly to sheet QUERY_FOR_GSL2 ? If I enter the Acctopid id number on Sheet 3, then click on the button, can it show the sheet QUERY_FOR_GSL2 without having to click on it ?

Before this line

Exit Sub

Type this

Sheets("QUERY_FOR_GSL2").Activate

It works perfectly! Thanks!

I'm going to open a new question on the same sample file I sumbitted earlier, but a little more complex.

Hold on as I open the question and post the link here, then close the actual question and award you full points.
