Finding error condition in a table

I have an autofilter applied to a table. The table headers are

Ename      Ecode      Division      Date      Project      Hours      Ccode

I would like a code which would search under all headers and filter out all rows which have either an error condition like NA, REF, VALUE or have a blank cell. The objective is to get rid of all such conditions so it would be just fine if it filters out only the first set of such items. Once corrected, it can look for the next set.

I am uploading a file for ease of testing.

Ok, something like this may work:
Sub filterForError()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim rng As Range, rngData As Range
    
    Set rng = Range("A1").CurrentRegion
    Set rngData = rng.Offset(1).Resize(rng.Rows.Count - 1)
    
    For i = 1 To rng.Columns.Count
        rng.AutoFilter Field:=i, Criteria1:=Array("#REF!", "#VALUE!", "#N/A", "="), Operator:=xlFilterValues
        
        On Error Resume Next
        If rngData.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Rows.Count < 1 Then
            rng.AutoFilter Field:=i
        Else
            Exit Sub
        End If
    Next i
End Sub

Maybe something like this to loop through all columns and filter for errors:
Sub filterForError()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim rng As Range
    
    Set rng = Range("A1").CurrentRegion
    For i = 1 To rng.Columns.Count
        rng.AutoFilter Field:=i, Criteria1:=Array("#REF!", "#VALUE!", "#N/A", "="), Operator:=xlFilterValues
        'Do something with the filtered result
        rng.AutoFilter Field:=i
    Next i
End Sub

Open in new window

For the "Do something ..."
I would simply like to have an exit sub but only if it has found some filtered data otherwise continue.

Perfect, thanks a lot.

I myself also managed to exit sub using this statement

If rng.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Cells.Count > rng.Columns.Count Then Exit Sub

That seems even better!
Thanks for sharing. I'll remember that one.
