Ahh. Now I understand. I can see how that might be useful.
Sorry, but I don't know a way to do that right now.
Seems like that might be a relatively easy thing to do,
but I don't know how.

I'm trying to display the AutoFilter values being applied to a table
so they can be read without opening up each filter at the top of each
column to see what the settings are.
For example, three columns Name, Weight, Dimensions. The table has
1000 rows. AutoFilter is in use and 727 rows are displayed. What are
the filter settings? Sure, can tell if a filter is applied by looking
at the filter list widget and opening it if it shows the filter is in
use. And even if all three are in use, no big deal. Only three to open
and check the values.
When the table has 30+ columns and hundreds or thousands of rows, not
such a simple task. Much more convenient just to have a formula that
will display the settings of all applied filters.
If I'm not explaining the requirement clearly please look at the link
to the Excel solution. That's got pictures along with an explanation
of the problem and solution.
That's what I'd like to reproduce in Calc.

You can use Ctrl-z to undo the command, but don't use Ctrl-Shift-y
to redo it
on another column. You must go through the command again on
and then do Ctrl-z again.

Many moons ago I was using some Calc sheets with AutoFilter routinely. The
filter value would be changed, the sheet closed and sometime later opened
To understand the displayed rows the filter values needed to be known. And
that involved opening each filter and checking the value.
So I asked, is there a way to display those values? No answers. And the
need went away.
Just recently had the same need in Excel. Found online the exact answer
needed to make it work.
The section "Display / Show auto filter criteria in worksheet with VBA
code" is what I referenced.
I've used that info to try and extrapolate a similar method in Calc to no
Have done a limited amount of searching in Andrew Pitonyak's OpenOffice.org
Macros Explained book and searched through OASIS Open Document Format
documents using terms like "filter" and "range". The answer might have been
staring me in the face, I'm thinking in particular of section 15.6.3 of
Andrew Pitonyak's OpenOffice.org Macros Explained, but I just didn't
Can anyone provide guidance to display the autofilter values in a Calc
sheet equivalent to the instructions provided for Excel at the link above?
