 How to apply same filter to multiple sheets In Excel?

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2020-05-07

It may be easy for us to apply the Filter function to filter data in a worksheet, but, sometimes, you may need to filter across multiple worksheets which have common data formatting with the same filter criteria. To filter them one by one will waste lots of time, here, I can introduce an easy way to solve it at once.

Apply same filter to multiple worksheets with VBA code

For example, I have four worksheets as following screenshot need to be filtered with the same criteria that the Product = KTE at once.

doc filter multiple sheets 1

There is no direct way to filter data in multiple sheets in Excel, but, the following VBA code can help you to finish this job, please do as follows:

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

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

VBA code: Apply same filter to multiple worksheets:

Sub apply_autofilter_across_worksheets()
'Updateby Extendoffice
    Dim xWs As Worksheet
    On Error Resume Next
    For Each xWs In Worksheets
        xWs.Range("A1").AutoFilter 1, "=KTE"
    Next
End Sub

3. And then press F5 key to run this code, all products of KTE have been filtered in all worksheets at once, see screenshot:

doc filter multiple sheets 2

Note: Within above code, in this xWs.Range("A1").AutoFilter 1, "=KTE" script, A1 and =KTE indicates the column and criteria which you want to filter based on, the number 1 is the column number you filtered based on, you can change them to your need. For example, if you want to filter the order greater than 50, you just need to modify this script as this: xWs.Range("B1").AutoFilter 2, ">50".


Filter data by multiple criteria or other specific condition, such as by text length, by case sensitive, etc.

Kutools for Excel’s Super Filter feature is a powerful utility, you can apply this feature to finish the following operations:

Hello, your code works really well. What about if I want to filter more than one cell value. For example: KTE and KTO? thank you for your help

Is it possible to use the code to filter where it does not contain a zero.

I have a workbook with sheets up to 20 sometimes, where one column is always the same in each sheet, want to filter out all zeros.

Hope this makes sense.

Hello, Richard,
To filter the data exclude the zeros, please apply the below vba code:
Note: in the code, in this xWs.Range("C1").AutoFilter 3, "<>0" script, C1 and <>0 indicates the column and criteria which you want to filter based on, the number 3 is the column number you filtered based on, you can change them to your need.
Sub apply_autofilter_across_worksheets()
'Updateby Extendoffice
    Dim xWs As Worksheet
    On Error Resume Next
    For Each xWs In Worksheets
        xWs.Range("c1").AutoFilter 3, "<>0"
    Next
End Sub


Please have a try, hope it can help you!

I want to use this code to filter on a column across multiple worksheets, the column will always have numbers in it, but I want the auto filter to remove zero values, leaving just minus and plus numbers.

Is this possible?

I am copying and pasting exactly but keep getting "Compile Error: Invalid outside procedure". I have only changed the criteria to match what I need specifically.. below:

Sub apply_autofilter_across_worksheets()
'Updateby Extendoffice
Dim xWs As Worksheet
On Error Resume Next
For Each xWs In Worksheets
xWs.Range("D3").AutoFilter 1, "=Paige"
Next
End Sub

Hello, Paige,
I have tested your code, and it works well in my workbook.
Could you upload your excel file here, so that we can check where the problem is.
Thank you!
