- In this workbook, we're looking…at a worksheet called Filter.…When you work with large lists of data,…there may be times when you don't want…to see all of the data.…Seeing just a portion of this list…might lead you to come up with the question,…"Could we see only the full time people?"…You surely could with filtering.…"Could we see just the people in on department?…"Or two? Or three departments?" Yes.…We can do that with filtering.…"Or people in a certain building?" Yes.…And we can do this in combination.…As with sorting, make sure the list…you're about to work with has no empty rows…or empty columns within it.…
And a bit of advice,…simply press Command A,…possibly zoom back or simply press…"ctrl + period" a few times…to move the active cell around the corners of this list.…Always make sure, when you come to the bottom,…scroll a little bit more just to make sure.…If you work with your data frequently,…you don't need to do this very often.…It's just a quick reminder that…the list you're working with should be compact…
