Hi,

Im looking for code to filter for "XYZ in column A

If there is no "XYZ" then i need the code to just ignore and move on, not to bomb out!

Has anyone such code?

Thanks!

Hi, Seamus2626,

I'm not sure I understand your requirements properly as filtering on a non-existent value doesn't cause an error...
Option Explicit

Sub Column_A()

If Not ActiveSheet.AutoFilterMode Then ActiveSheet.UsedRange.AutoFilter
If ActiveSheet.FilterMode Then ActiveSheet.ShowAllData
ActiveSheet.Range("A:A").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="=xyz", Operator:=xlAnd

End Sub

Open in new window

Regardsm
Brian.
