How to determine if an Excel Table filter is on or off

I have a Command Button to Update a table connected to an Access Query.  Sometimes the table is filtered and sometimes it is not.

Currently my VBA code looks like this:


If the filter has been turned on this works fine.  However, if the table is not filtered, I get the error :

ShowAllData method of Worksheet class failed.

Is there a way I can set up a check to see if the table is filtered or not?
