How to filter multiple columns simultaneously in Excel?
When you apply the Filter function, after filtering one column, the next columns will be only filtered based on the result of the previous filtered column. It means that only AND criteria can be applied to more than one column. In this case, how could you apply both the AND and OR criteria to filter multiple columns simultaneously in Excel worksheet?
For example, I have a range of data, now, I need to filter them based on the criteria from multiple columns: Product = AAA-1 and Order > 80, or Total Price >10000 to get the following filter result:
The Advanced Filter may help you to solve this job as you need, please do step by step:
1. Create the filter criteria to your need, this example, I will enter the criteria in range G1:I2, see screenshot:
Note: To create an AND criterion, put your criteria on the same row, if creating OR criterion, put the criteria on separate rows.
2. After creating the criteria, please click Data > Advanced, see screenshot:
3. In the Advanced Filter dialog box, do the following operations:
(1.) Select Filter the list, in-place option under the Action section;
(2.) Click button to select the range of cells which you want to filter from the List range box;
(3.) And then click button to select the filter criteria you want to filter based on from the Criteria range box;
4. Then click OK, and multiple columns have been filtered simultaneously based on the criteria, see screenshot:
If you cannot apply the Advanced Filter expertly, the Kutools for Excel’s Super Filter also can do you a favor. With it, you just need to select the criteria as same as using the Filter feature without typing the criteria manually.
