Filtering Multiple Columns

Jan 28, 2008

I am trying to filter three columns of data to a given range without having to using auto filter on each column. I would like to have a Macro or Control Button or something easier than picking each set of data each time I want to filter.

Attached is a sample file.

I am not well versed in Excel and this is my first post so please bear with me in this process.

Excel 2010 :: Filtering Multiple Columns (OR)

Jul 18, 2012

I have a worksheet with

Col A being Name,
B being primary skill,
C secondary skill and
D tertiary skill.
(Sanitised example below)

There are about 15 diferent types of skills ("Skill x, Skill y etc") listed in each of column B,C and D.

I would like to have a filter (or similar) where all names would show if a certain skill is present in either column B, C or D.

For example, a filter that on the below spreadsheet would allow me to view the names of all people who have "Skill x" either as a primary, secondary or tertiary skill.

I am using Excel 2010.

Filtering Columns When Adjacent Columns Are Blank

Apr 15, 2013

I import a text file that displays outstanding parts orders. The order Number column only displays one number even if there are multiple parts ordered I.E. so if three parts are on order then the order number is displayed once with the other two underneath blank. I would like to filter the column that displays the amount of stock that is available so that even if the row has no stock but the other two have all three rows are displayed that reference the order number.

Filtering Columns

May 13, 2009

I have an excel with the following information

A1 - Is a dropdown which will have names of the systems (EAI,Mediation,CDF

Row2 will be header which will have following data

B2 - Project Id
C2 - System ID
D2 - Project name
E2 - Project Phase
F2 - Status
from g2 to GN2 there are about 60 resources names entered

From C3 to F3 the data wil be entered and appropriately a chk mark will be
made to the corresponding resource wroking on that project

Say i have about 10 systems provided as dropdown for entering data in A1
(Ex: EAI, MEdiation, .....)
There are resources working for each system

when i apply filtering on a system name i shoud be able
to show only those resources working for that system and all others should be

Also under the "system" dropdown i will have an option "All", when "All"
option is selected i should be able to see all the data for all the systems.

EX: if i take system "EAI" and if the resources working for eai are there in
AO2 to AX2 then i want the resources from AX2 onwards and before AO2
not to be shown.

If i take a system "Mediation" and if its resources are from Z2 to AI2
then i want resources before Z2 and after AI2 notto be shown.

If "All" option is chosen then i should be able to see the whole sheet
with all the data for all the systems and all resources.

Filtering Data Using Two Separate Columns

Dec 10, 2009

I have text in column A and text in column B. I would like to create column C and place the number 1 in each row whenever columns A and B contain the text I am looking for. I could then use C to filter all the 1's with ease (by way of macro or the autofilter). In my problem, column A contains the following text per cell:


Column B contains:

I need to filter based on column A having the letter "A", or column B having the word "MATT". Columns A and B do not have to contain both "A" and "MATT", respectively, in order for column C to have a 1.

Filtering Data In 2 Seperate Columns

Feb 25, 2007

I'm trying to put together a sheet to track football results. For simplicity sake, the sheet looks like this...

Home ; Away ; For ; Against ;
a ; b ; 2 ; 0
c ; d ; 1 ; 1
b ; c ; 1 ; 3
d ; a ; 2 ; 4
a ; c ; 1 ; 2

By using Autofilter on the home or away columns, i can obviously filter it in order that I can see all A's home results or all of A's away results, but by doing this you can't just filter the sheet in order to see the results of every game A plays in. I have a feeling that I need to do something with Advanced filter but have been playing around with this and not getting any joy. Can anyone advise on what I need to do?

Ultimately, my end goal would be to be able to create a drop down list where i would select the team from a list of all teams and this would automatically filter the sheet to their results only (and then I could use an autofilter to look at just homes or aways).

Filtering Via Multiple Criteria From Different Sheet?

Jul 30, 2014

I have a workbook that has the main user interface on sheet3 and the main database i'm trying to filter on sheet2. Sheet3 has the button that executes the code to open the worksheet with the database and filter based on certain criteria and will filter unique id if a numeric value is entered and surname if text is entered.

Originally this worked ok when i had the button and the' rcrit' cell reference on the same worksheet as the database i'm trying to filter, but i decided to move them to the interface page as it was interfering with other things i'm trying to do.

Ever since then i can't seem to edit it to make it work from the other page! I've tried changing the filter ranges to reflect the new set up, but it seems to no longer be able to recognise numeric/none numeric values.

here's the code I'm using.

Sub filter()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim rCrit1 As Range

Setting Filtering Across Multiple Sheets?

Jul 31, 2013

I work with project data.... I have attached a small sample. I will have data across 8 - 10 tabs with respect to costs associated with different projects.

What I do now is go through each tab and set filters based on what project and date range I am looking for ... if I am not careful, there may be other filters previously set that I do not notice and my data isn't accurate and I may spend quite a bit of time reviewing all the filters and resetting as needed.

But, the filtering will be the same across all tabs (i.e. I may want to see all project data for a single month, or I may want to see all project data for a single project across all date ranges.)

is there a way to create another tab which I can identify the desired filtering than can populate across all the tabs? not all the tabs contain the same number of columns of data, but they do all contain some similar columns that represent the typical filtering range.

Multiple Criteria Filtering With Formulas

May 2, 2013

I have a database with 10 properties of a certain kind of material #.

IE: Material 1206 is Black, SG is 1.2, Duro is 70, Cure, tensile, price, etc.

I want a user to select 5 criteria from a drop-down list and have the 6th drop-down box populate available materials that meet the previous 5 criteria. I am trying to do this automatically and avoid user trying to autofilter (have to make it easy). I've extended the database out to show either a "0" or "1" if the 5 criteria match, but I can not get them into a drop-down list with a formula due to a #REF! error. I am not sure where the circular reference is coming from or what I have to do to change it.

Excel Advanced Filtering On Multiple Sheets

Apr 26, 2013

I am doing a project with these instructions:

The state, capital and population of all states with a population greater than 10 million or less than 1 million. (population)
The state, tree and bird of all states with a bird or tree that starts with Eastern or Western (symbols)
The state, population and area of all states with area between 100,000 and 200,000 (area)

I am having troubles with selecting just the three criteria (state, capital, and population) on my Population worksheet. Attached is my work. The copied filter keeps copying all of the data in the data set, and not those three.

Filtering Multiple Rows Based On Data In One Row

Apr 26, 2012

I have a 'dump' of a general ledger accounting system....about 20,000 rows. Column A contains the journal number for each set of transactions (there are usually two rows in each set but sometimes three), column C contains the name of the account, and column E the amount. For example:

Row 269 cell A269 = 487 (journal number) cell C269 = Cheque, cell E269 = $50
Row 270 cell A270 = 487 (journal number) cell C270 = Travel, cell E270 = -$50

What I am wanting to do is to extract the sets of journal entries, where the account name (in column C) is "Cheque" I would want to extract rows 269 and 270 based on the above example. If I filter using the account name it only gives me one row for each journal transaction - only half of the story. Given that the journal number links the two rows.

Sorting (or Maybe Filtering) Worksheet With Multiple Data In Cells

Nov 1, 2008

Background: I am HR manager for a construction company & keeper of the call-in list of personnel who are looking for work. I have a simple sheet that has columns:

Date Name Craft Experience ...more info...

If each call-in had only one craft, wouldn't have a problem. Those who are multicrafted ar listed e.g. "EL, MW, BM" In the column C. A caller two days later may be listed as "MW, BM, EL" We input the data as they say it since that is usually their order of expertise. (Yes, I know that it should have been set up with each craft having its own column, but I inherited the sheet & it has 4000+ entries)

I wrote a couple of small macros & assigned buttons on the sheet to allow the users to sort the sheet by date, or name, or craft. My customers (project managers) have requested to be able to sort by craft but have all the folks with any specific craft listed together.

Example (Excel 2003): ..

Filtering Pivot Using Cell Value (for Select Multiple Items)

Sep 27, 2013

I'm running a pretty huge database with Part Numbers across several Suppliers which fluctuate constantly.

For example: a HEXAGONAL BOLT may have a Part Number ABC123, but depending on the size of the bolt it could be a ABC123-001 ABC123-V28 ABC123-40mm (etc)

There's a lot of data (some of it sensitive) so I don't want the users to see everything - I'm creating a front-end sheet and am looking for a way for a user to type in the Part Number "ABC123" into cell A1, then the Pivot below to auto-update (with Part Number on the 'Report Filter') to show all variations of ABC123, including ABC123-1 ABC123-2 etc - i.e. not an exact match; everything that contains the characters in cell A1.

The relevant information has been ported in and password protected on a sepearate sheet within the workbook, so it's literally a code to make the cell value affect the filter.

Creating View By Filtering 2 Columns By Date (both Within 3 Months Of Today Date)

Mar 20, 2014

Trying to do a linkback from another post located here but not having much luck doing it: [URL]

I'm working with 2 date columns and trying to filter a view to only include projects with dates within 3 months of today's date.

I've attached a current working file of the data and the end result i'm hoping to achieve via a macro of some sort.

I've manually got it to work via formula by inserting 2 additional columns (highlighted yellow) which determine if the dates "YES" fall in this 3 month time frame of "" blank if not.

create a macro which does all of this automatically without modifying any columns if this is possible

Multiple Columns Which Need To Be Combined With Some Columns Not Having All Cells Fill

Apr 30, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with 10 columns which are for tags for products. Some columns are filled in for 10 products and some are not. For instance, product 1 has 7 tags while product 2 has only 2 tags and so on. Now what I am looking to do is combine all the tags for each product with a "," inbetween each one. The problem is if I just use a simple =A2&","&B2&","&C2 etc formula is that if there are only 2 tags then I get 8 ","s. I also tried it with an IF statement but by the time I was done nesting items I became cross eyed and said there has to be an easier way to do this.

I have create a spreadsheet with the data and the result that I typed into the "result" column.

Copy Multiple Columns Groups To 1 Group Of X Columns

Aug 6, 2009


The key point is that I have over 400 columns grouped in three, offset by one row down for each (this is due to a different formula I have working). Each column is 60 numbers long (not including empty cells above data). I want to copy all of these columns into a single set of three columns on another sheet (Sheet2). (These will be the fifth, sixth, and seventh columns, E, F, and G. If it would be simpler, I could simply copy the third of each set of columns on Sheet1 (C, F, I) to column G of Sheet2. Then there would be a total of 144 columns being copied (60 numbers per column).) All of this copying has to be values-only as the original columns consist of formulas referencing outside cells. Sheet2 should look like this:.............

Sort Multiple Columns, With Blanks, And Move All Columns Into One

Feb 15, 2010

I found this code on Ozgrid to sort all columns of a worksheet that were continuous with no gaps or spaces that works well:

Sub CopyToA()
Do While ActiveCell <> ""
Range(ActiveCell, ActiveCell.End(xlDown)).Cut Destination:=Range("a65535").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select
End Sub

However, I've tried to manipulate the code myself to 1) find all columns that aren't empty then 2) sort each column individually (WITHOUT expanding the sort to other columns) and 3) combining all the numbers into one seperate column. There are many posts concerning sorting but not one that addressed this particular situation.
