    Dear Sir,
    I am using Advanced filter and everything is working well.... However what I can't figure out is how to make the advanced filter I have setup search for a certain word or letters within text.

    For Example: I type the word (butter) in the Criteria range, and I want to search for any transaction that conatins this word, However currently it returns no value, Unless I type the exact search as it is listed in the data list precisely...

    How Can I overcome this Problem and be able to enter a word or any letters and return results that contain any of this using Advanced filter.
    Note: I know how to do this using Regular filter and drop down, but I want to be able to do it with advanced filter. Please anyone can tell me simply how to do it?

      you can try typing as

      "*"&"butter"&"*"

      in place of butter. This helps to search the text at all position in a cell.
