Do you mean unhide all columns and rows or expand all columns to the width of their content or something similar?

Quick way is to press Ctrl-A to select entire worksheet. Then double click on a vertical line between the column headings. This will auto expand the columns to the required width.

Just wonder whether it is possible to modify the field on the existing silcer, rather than remove and create a new one. Tks

Assuming you mean for a pivot table, you could use something like this:

Sub ExpandAll()
    Dim pf                    As PivotField
    Dim pfs                   As PivotFields
    
    Set pfs = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1).RowFields
    For Each pf In pfs
        If pf.Position < pfs.Count Then pf.ShowDetail = True
    Next pf
    Set pfs = ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1).ColumnFields
    For Each pf In pfs
        If pf.Position < pfs.Count Then pf.ShowDetail = True
    Next pf

End Sub

Open in new window

On the Data Tab there should be a Sort & Filter group. In that group there is the large funnel button to apply a filter, there should also be a smaller one with Clear next to it. This will clear all filter settings on the current sheet.

Thanks
