 How to update advanced filter result automatically in Excel?

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2021-01-06

When we apply the Advanced Filter feature, we will find that the filtered result will not change automatically with the criteria change. This needs us to apply the Advanced Filter function once again to get the new result. But, do you have any good and quick trick for updating the advanced filter result automatically as following screenshot shown in Excel?

The following VBA code may help you to automatically update the advanced filter result when you change the criteria as you need, please do as this:

1. Right click the sheet tab that you want to filter the data automatically, and then choose View Code from the context menu, in the opened Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window, copy and paste the following code into the blank Module:

VBA code: Update advanced filter result automatically:

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Range("A5:D21").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, CriteriaRange:=Range _

This is likely not relevant anymore. Office excel now has a FILTER function that auto updates from what I gather, making advanced filter a sort of weak pivot table. FILTER function is what should be used moving forward? Sounds like excel's solution to the issue you state above not requring VBA to do.

Hi, I am applying advanced filter for a single column for unique values(with no criteria) . I need it to be updated by itself.

Could you please help me with that?

Hello, this code works perfectly, there is just one problem, the copy/paste fonction doesn't work anymore.
How could it be fixed?
Thanks in advance

@Hannah: Yes, it is possible.
In the following code the criteria is on the sheet "Filter".


Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Range("A5:D23").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterInPlace, CriteriaRange:= _
Sheets("Filter").Range("A1:C3"), Unique:=False
End Sub

Bonjour, merci pour votre post qui m'aide énormément. Toutefois quel serait le code à ajouter pour coller le résultat dans un tableau d'une autre feuille de fichier et si possible pour au passage ne coller que certaines colonnes ?
Pour être plus précise, en utilisant votre exemple je voudrais copier uniquement les colonnes "Product" et "Name" du résultat du filtre et ce dans une nouvelle feuille. Merci.
