You can try:
   ActiveSheet.RangeUsed.AutoFilter Field:=37, Operator:= _
    xlFilterValues, Criteria2:="<=" & Array(0, DateValue(Now) )

For some reason this is failing.  I forgot too that I need to take out the blanks and the #N/A's.  All I need to see are the cells that have dates and are =< today.

ActiveSheet.RangeUsed.AutoFilter Field:=37, Operator:= _
    xlFilterValues, Criteria2:="<=" & Format(Date, "m/d/yyyy")

This should eliminate blanks and #NA

Here is the sheet that I am trying to run the autofilter on and here is the code that is failing.

' Macro13 Macro
'Sheets("CDPSRECRPT-Yesterday").Select
    Rows("1:1").Select
    Selection.AutoFilter  'filter on
   
'    ActiveSheet.RangeUsed.AutoFilter Field:=37, Operator:= _
'    xlFilterValues, Criteria2:="<=" & Array(0, DateValue(Now))
    
    ActiveSheet.RangeUsed.AutoFilter Field:=37, Operator:= _
    xlFilterValues, Criteria2:="<=" & Format(Date, "m/d/yyyy")

    RowCnt2 = ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlVisible).Count
    Sheets("MOT-MeasureData").Select
    Range("C2").Select 'put the number complete in the previous day
    Range("C3") = RowCnt2  'places the number in MOT-MeasureData

'

End Sub

I believe it was failing because you had "RangeUsed" instead of "UsedRange".  
     ActiveSheet.UsedRange.AutoFilter Field:=37, _
    Criteria1:="<=" & Format(Date, "m/d/yyyy"), Operator:=xlFilterValues
