    Great macro for filtering a unique list - some fine tuning

    Found this originally from
    http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.asp?ID=4941

    I modified it a little bit to fill my own needs. So this code selects some range from column C to filter data and asks for the cell where to paste it.

    Now I got these questions.

    1. Is there any code to keep my current formatting on the sheet. So that when the macro pastes the unique list, it wouldnt sweep my cell colors out?

    2. Actually I would like to use the macro so that I wouldn't need to take the headline row within the range. If I don't take it now, code duplicates the first value. (It is how advanced filter is built.) Is it easy for you to change the code little bit that it some how wouldn't take into account the first value? If not, forget this second question.
    e.g. This would be filtered as two, one, three.
    C5: one
    C6: two
    C7: one
    C8: two
    C9: three

    To best describe or illustrate your problem you would be better off attaching a dummy workbook, the workbook should contain the same structure and some dummy data of the same type as the type you have in your real workbook - so, if a cell contains numbers & letters in this format abc-123 then that should be reflected in the dummy workbook.

    If needed supply a before and after sheet in the workbook so the person helping you can see what you are trying to achieve.

    Doing this will ensure you get the result you need!

    Re: Great macro for filtering a unique list - some fine tuning

    I agree, it's a lot easier to understand with a file. Sorry for not putting it in the first place.

    So I want to filter a list to another place as unique and keep the destination place formatting like colors and heading. Added later: Also it would be nice if the destination column could be colored so, that after the last unique item there would be two light blue colored empty cells below it.

    The macro code comes with the file and I change the line to match the layout:
    Range("B3", Range("B65536")
    --> This way it doesn't work correctly, because it's duplicating the first value.
    --> You can change in the code B3 to B2. But then I have wrong heading name.

    Also the first way deletes some colors.

    Then the macro should first perhaps to empty the destination values, because it is not copying anything if there are values?
    EDIT: Actually just found a simple macro to clear cells to include in the code.

    Still need help for the rest, thanks!
