This way requires basic sequence column at the beginning of data, and another help column. If there is no sequence column before you data, please add it at the beginning.

2: Select the range of E2:E17, and click the Home >> Fill >> Down to copy this formula to all cells in the selection.

1. Filter every other row (Even rows)

If you want to filter every other row (Even rows), take the same steps as we told you above, and check the 1 item in the filter box in Step 4.

2. Filter every nth row

In the help column, you got the 1, 0, 1, 0…, 1, 0 with the formula of =MOD(A2, 2). Actually, you can modify the formula and get different divisor for filtering.
For example, you can apply the formula of =Mod(A2, 5) to filter every 5th row with same steps we told you in Filter every other row (Odd rows).
