Hello all,

Okay, so I have a table with 100+ columns... I'm wanting to format the Header to a different color scheme when it has been filtered down so when I'm scrolling across I can readily see the column that has been filtered without having to look for that little "tree" icon. Started thinking conditional formatting, but how do you tell it what to look for to differentiate between filtered and unfiltered? ...then looked at doing a macro, but don't know the syntax to look at F. vs. unF. Anyone have a suggestion??

Thanks!

How about
VBA Code:
Sub chuggins()
   Dim i As Long
   With Sheets("Sheet1").AutoFilter
      For i = 1 To .Range.Columns.Count
         If .Filters.Item(i).On Then
            .Range.Columns(i).Rows(1).Interior.Color = rgbPurple
         Else
            .Range.Columns(i).Rows(1).Interior.Color = xlNone
         End If
      Next i
   End With
End Sub
This will need to be run manually, as there is no direct way to tell if the filters have been changed.
