    Slicer Alternative

    I have a table, and I have defined named ranges. My data sources is one sheet1 which has headers; I would ultimately like to use data validation on sheet2 - so I would have each header listed and have a drop down with distinct values (from the data source in sheet1). The trouble I am having is for the filters to actually work and filter the data. In a sense, I am trying to do what the little filter arrows would do on sheet 2.

    I have tried advanced filtering, and even using INDIRECT as part of the source in the data validation - but I might not be using it correctly

    I do realize there are slicers that do this method, but I keep getting this slicer cache error when opening up the document and can't figure out why.

    It's difficult to figure out from the description what is going on. A sample workbook will help us visualize the issue more clearly.

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and then scroll down to Manage Attachments to open the upload window.
    One spreadsheet to rule them all. One spreadsheet to find them. One spreadsheet to bring them all and at corporate, bind them.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, but a sample spreadsheet is more likely to be worked on.
