    Automatic filtering in Excel

    Hello,

    I want to automatize a filtering of an Excel file but have no clue where to start from as I know nothing of Visual Basic...
    From 1 table I need to get 2 different summaries:
    1) filter column 2: 2 values to be removed. Then filter column 10: 3 values to be removed
    2) filter column 2: 2 values to be removed. Then filter column 8: 2 values to be left. Then only coulmns 1-2-8-11 should be displayed
    Anyone can help me? Hope it's clear...

    Thanks,
    RenNoClue

    Re: Automatic filtering in Excel

    If you're using an Excel Table, it has built-in filtering features. If your data is not in an Excel Table, follow these steps to add an Excel 2007 AutoFilter.
    1. Select a cell in the database.
    2. On the Excel Ribbon, click the Data tab, and then click Filter.

    To use automatic filtering, filter your data, choose Data> Filter> AutoFilter. Your column labels will be a drop-down menu. All the columns will be the only entry listed in the drop-down, together with all the top 10 choices ...... .... You can select Custom from the drop-down menu, select the column selection criteria.
