    Locking Cells to avoid Filter in a Table

    I have a table that lists information about other college MBA programs for the purpose of comparing to my MBA program. The list includes many programs, so I'm using a table that can be filtered by state, price, concentration, etc., but I want to lock the first row of the table, my program, so it shows up on any filter. Right now, if I filter by California, for example, my program in Oregon will disappear. Freezing the top row with my program doesn't work. Is there a way to make sure the table row including my program will show up in every filtration, even if the filter doesn't apply to the data in my program?

    Not sure about advanced filters in later versions, but you could always do this with a bit of VBA and a filter button something like this...
