When I do this I should get AutoFilters on columns 1 and 3. But I get 2 and 4 (see image).
Tried to fudge it with Field:=0 I get an error.

The odd behaviour that I get
According to here it should work.

Sub AutoFilterDropdownsON()

    With Range("E6:I6")
        .AutoFilter Field:=1, visibledropdown:=True
        .AutoFilter Field:=2, visibledropdown:=False
        .AutoFilter Field:=3, visibledropdown:=True
        .AutoFilter Field:=4, visibledropdown:=False
    End With

End Sub
