Hi,

I have filtered a list for unique entries only, but my code for bring that list into a list box still picks up the hidden rows

Can i change the below code to only import visible entries

Thanks
Seamus

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()

Dim j As String
   
    j = 2
    Do While Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(j, 1).value
        j = j + 1
    Loop
   
    Me.ListBox1.RowSource = "Sheet1!Q2:Q" & (j - 1)



End Sub

This will get you your unique list without the filter.

Private Sub UserForm_Activate()
    Dim cell As Range
    Dim tempList As Variant: tempList = ""
    For Each cell In Range("Q2:Q" & Range("Q65536").End(xlUp).Row)
        If cell.Value <> "" Then
            If InStr(1, tempList, cell.Value) = 0 Then
                If tempList = "" Then tempList = Trim(CStr(cell.Value)) Else tempList = tempList & "|" & Trim(CStr(cell.Value))
            End If
        End If
    Next cell
    Me.ListBox1.List = Split(tempList, "|")
End Sub
