    Olá,


    Como faço para saber o número da célula toda vez que realizo o filtro automático no vba via loop?
    Por exemplo, ao filtrar o valor 1, retornou as linhas 2, 3 e 4. No próximo loop filtro o valor 2 e retorna as linhas 19, 20, 22.
    Como faço para que eu realizar esse filtro eu pegue exatamente o valor da linha atual da linha do filtro e não o valor da primeira linha da planilha?
    Obrigado.
