How to Filter in Google Sheets

There are a few ways to filter data in Google Sheets. One way is to use the "Filter" function under the "Data" tab. Another way is to use the "Advanced Filter" function. The "Filter" function is a quick and easy way to filter data, while the "Advanced Filter" function gives you more control over the filtering process.

To use the "Filter" function, select the cells that you want to filter, and then click on the "Filter" button under the "Data" tab. This will open the "Filter" menu. The "Filter" menu has three tabs: "AutoFilter," "Filter by selection," and "Filter views." The "AutoFilter" tab is the default tab. The "Filter by selection" tab lets you filter data by selecting specific cells, and the "Filter views" tab lets you filter data by creating a custom view.

To filter data using the "AutoFilter" tab, select the column that you want to filter, and then select the filter type from the drop-down list. The filter types are: "equal to," "not equal to," "less than," "less than or equal to," "greater than," and "greater than or equal to." You can also filter data by text string, number, date, or time.

To filter data using the "Filter by selection" tab, select the cells that you want to filter, and then select the filter type from the drop-down list. The filter types are the same as the filter types in the "AutoFilter" tab.

To filter data using the "Filter views" tab, create a custom view by selecting the column headers and the filter type. The filter types are the same as the filter types in the "AutoFilter" tab.

The "Advanced Filter" function lets you filter data by more than one column. To use the "Advanced Filter" function, select the cells that you want to filter, and then click on the "Advanced Filter" button under the "Data" tab. This will open the "Advanced Filter" dialog box. The "Advanced Filter" dialog box has three tabs: "Criteria," "Output," and "Options." The "Criteria" tab lets you specify the criteria for the filter, the "Output" tab lets you specify the output range, and the "Options" tab lets you specify the options for the filter.

The "Criteria" tab has two fields: "Criteria range" and "Criteria list." The "Criteria range" field lets you specify the range of cells that contain the criteria for the filter. The "Criteria list" field lets you specify the criteria for the filter. The "Criteria list" field has three tabs: "Equal to," "Not equal to," and "Text contains." The "Equal to" tab lets you specify the criteria as an equality test, the "Not equal to" tab lets you specify the criteria as a non-equality test, and the "Text contains" tab lets you specify the criteria as a text string.

The "Output" tab has two fields: "Output range" and "Copy to." The "Output range" field lets you specify the range of cells that the filtered data will be copied to. The "Copy to" field lets you specify the destination range for the filtered data.

The "Options" tab has two fields: "Header" and "Sort." The "Header" field lets you specify whether the header row of the output range should be copied to the destination range. The "Sort" field lets
