Filter Range problem in Excel

Hi Guys, I recorded a Macro for a daily process whereby I put an auto-filter on row 3.Then do End(xlDown) and copy the region. However, the Macro recorded the exact Row range and it will be variable every day so I need to adapt it.
Rows("3:3").Select
    Selection.AutoFilter
    ActiveSheet.Range("$A$3:$R$166").AutoFilter Field:=13, Criteria1:=">=1", _
        Operator:=xlOr, Criteria2:="<=-1"

Any ideas?

Hello Justin,

try the following:
Dim lr as long
lr = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row

Rows("3:3").Select
    Selection.AutoFilter
    ActiveSheet.Range("$A$3:$R$" & lr).AutoFilter Field:=13, Criteria1:=">=1", _
        Operator:=xlOr, Criteria2:="<=-1"

Open in new window

where Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row finds the last row used in column A.
If needed, replace A with a column in which there's always a value in the last row.

Btw, you can also leave this part out:
Rows("3:3").Select
    Selection.AutoFilter


So, this works as well:
Rows("3:3").AutoFilter
