 How to update advanced filter result automatically in Excel?

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?

    @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.

    it refreshes every time when any data changes.

    is it possible to refresh only when criteria changes.
