How to Quickly Identify Applied AutoFilters in Excel

When working with large data sets in Excel, it can be helpful to apply an AutoFilter to quickly identify and extract the data you need. However, if you have multiple AutoFilters applied, it can be difficult to keep track of which filter is which. This guide will show you how to quickly identify applied AutoFilters in Excel.

  1. Open the worksheet that contains the data you want to filter.
  2. Click the Data tab on the ribbon.
  3. In the Sort & Filter group, click the Filter button. This will display a drop-down arrow next to each column header.
  4. Click the drop-down arrow next to the first column header. This will display a list of all the unique values in that column.
  5. If there is a check mark next to any of the values, this indicates that this value is being filtered by the applied AutoFilter.

You can repeat this process for each column header to see which values are being filtered by each AutoFilter. This is a quick and easy way to identify which filters have been applied to your data set.
