I have a macro that loops through multiple worksheets and filters a row based on a user selection. When it gets to the second worksheet, it throws the error "Select method of Range Class Failed."

I think this might be because the second sheet is active but it's trying to select the range on the first sheet, but i don't know what I'm doing wrong... can you help?

Sub FilterAllWorksheets()
        Dim FilterRange As Range
   


     Set FilterRange = Application.InputBox(Prompt:= _
      "Please select the Row to be Filtered", _
       Title:="Filter Range", Type:=8)
               If FilterRange Is Nothing Then
        Exit Sub

   Else


    On Error GoTo 0

 Dim i As Integer
        For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
        Sheets(i).Select
       
       
        FilterRange.Select
       
     With ActiveSheet
    Selection.AutoFilter
   
    End With

           

        Next i
          End If


 Sheets(1).Select

 ActiveWindow.View = xlNormalView
End Sub

Try this:

    Dim i As Integer
   
    For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
        Sheets(i).Range(FilterRange.Address).AutoFilter
    Next i
