How to auto number or renumber after filter in Excel?

As we all known, after filtering the data which has a list of series numbers, the row numbers on the worksheet will be displayed as the same as the original numbers, they are not renumbered automatically. But, sometimes, you want to renumber the rows as sequence in the filtered worksheet as following screenshots shown. And this article, I will talk about how to auto number or renumber after filter in Excel.

Auto number or renumber after filter with VBA code

In the filtered status, you can’t apply the Autofill handle to fill the number sequence, you just can fill them by typing the numbers one by one. But, this will be tedious and time consuming if there are a lot of cells needed renumbering. Here, I will introduce a VBA code to solve this task.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys, and it opens the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following macro in the Module window.

VBA code: Auto number or renumber after filter

Sub Renumbering()
	Dim Rng As Range
	Dim WorkRng As Range
	On Error Resume Next
	xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
	Set WorkRng = Application.Selection
	Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type: = 8)
	Set WorkRng = WorkRng.Columns(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible)
	xIndex = 1
	For Each Rng In WorkRng
		Rng.Value = xIndex
		xIndex = xIndex + 1
End Sub

3. After pasting the code, please press F5 key to run this code, and a prompt box will pop out to remind you select a range cells that you want to auto number or renumber the rows, see screenshot:


4. Then click OK, and your selected range cells have been renumbered sequentially as below screenshot shown:


Note: This code will destroy the original series row numbers when you cancel the filter function. So you need back up your data first.
