Macro for filtering by a range of dates

I have a spreadsheet with approximately 10,000 rows of data. Column A has tentative dates and Column B has actual dates.

I need a macro where i can set the lower and upper range of the dates, within the macro not by user input and filter according to that range. Column A and B are not dependent on each other.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Hi,

This would give the output if the dates from either Col A or Col B falls within the range.

Sub kTest()
    
    Dim ka, k(), i As Long, n As Long, Flg As Boolean
    Dim dtStart As Date, dtEnd  As Date
    Dim sDt As Long, eDt As Long, UB1 As Long
    
    ka = Intersect(ActiveSheet.UsedRange, Range("a:b")).Value2
    
    dtStart = DateSerial(2000, 1, 1)    'year,month,day
    dtEnd = DateSerial(2012, 3, 1)      'year,month,day
    
    sDt = CLng(dtStart): eDt = CLng(dtEnd)
    UB1 = UBound(ka, 1)
    
    ReDim k(1 To UB1, 1 To 2)
    
    For i = 2 To UB1
        Flg = ((ka(i, 1) >= sDt) * (ka(i, 1) <= eDt)) + ((ka(i, 2) >= sDt) * (ka(i, 2) <= eDt))
        If Flg Then
            n = n + 1
            k(n, 1) = ka(i, 1): k(n, 2) = ka(i, 2)
        End If
    Next
    
    If n Then
        With Range("e2") '<< adjust this range
            .CurrentRegion.Resize(, 2).Offset(1).ClearContents
            .Resize(n, 2) = k
            .Resize(n, 2).NumberFormat = "dd-mmm-yy"
        End With
    End If
    
End Sub

It's not at all clear what you want.

Do you want to see only rows where both dates fall within your date range, or where at least one of the dates falls within the range?

By "filter", do you mean the standard AutoFilter functionality where the rows are hidden, or do you actually want to remove the rows from the set?

Assuming you mean normal filtering, this would apply it if both dates must fall within the range:


Sub FilterOnBoth()
    
    Const StartDate As Date = #1/1/2012#
    Const EndDate As Date = #12/31/2012#
    
    With [a1]
        .AutoFilter
        .AutoFilter 1, ">=" & StartDate, xlAnd, "<=" & EndDate
        .AutoFilter 2, ">=" & StartDate, xlAnd, "<=" & EndDate
    End With
    
End Sub

If you want to filter on either date falling within the range, you need a helper column:


Sub FilterOnEither()
    
    Dim LastR As Long, LastC As Long
    
    Const StartDate As Date = #1/1/2012#
    Const EndDate As Date = #12/31/2012#
    
    With ActiveSheet
        .[a1].AutoFilter
        LastR = .Cells(.Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
        LastC = .Cells(1, .Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
        .Cells(1, LastC + 1) = "Filter"
        .Cells(2, LastC + 1).Resize(LastR - 1, 1).Formula = "=OR(AND(A2>=DATEVALUE(""" & StartDate & """)," & _
            "A2<=DATEVALUE(""" & EndDate & """)),AND(B2>=DATEVALUE(""" & StartDate & """)," & _
            "B2<=DATEVALUE(""" & EndDate & """)))"
        With .[a1]
            .AutoFilter
            .AutoFilter LastC + 1, True, xlAnd
        End With
    End With
    
End Sub
