excel – Filtering Out Specific Value

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


I want to filter out a specific value in a column, but the record feature seems to only support selecting specific values to keep instead of take out.

For example, if the column is filled with arbitrary words not known beforehand, I want to make sure a specific word is not there. If a column was filled with names of fruits, I would want to take out “apple” without having to know the name of every other fruit in there.

I would have to select every fruit but “apple” to filter “apple” out.

How to&Answers:


Sub Macro1()
    ActiveSheet.Range("$G$1:$G$21").AutoFilter Field:=1, Criteria1:="<>apple", _
End Sub

just as an example.
