I need to filer Row 1 Column 'T' to find items that are 'New' When filtered I need to copy the items [but not the header] and paste these onto a new sheet, but if wheh I filter there is no data I do not want to copy anything.

I was trying to use the below code but if there is no data it copies the header

ActiveSheet.Range("$A:$T").AutoFilter Field:=20, Criteria1:="<>"
    If ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row > 1 Then
    End If
    Dim LR As Long
    LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Range("A2:T" & LR).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Select

    ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select

Appreciate some help.
Thank you

pls try

Sub macro()
Dim myRange
ActiveSheet.Range("$A:$T").AutoFilter Field:=20, Criteria1:="<>"
Set myRange = Range(Range("T2"), Range("T" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
If myRange.Row = 1 Then ' no data
    Exit Sub
    myRange.EntireRow.Copy Destination:=Sheets("Sheet2").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
End If
End Sub

Try this:
If WorksheetFunction.CountIf(activesheet.Range(Range("T2"), Range("T" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp)),"new") <> 0 Then
'place your filtering code here

End If
