Select unlocked cells

Poor form to cancel the request when you haven't solved the problem as per your comment " but when another user open it, still appear "Advanced Filter". "

Here is an article that steps it out.

Also I have tried this on Excel 2003 between two machine and users can not un-hide the hidden sheet.
