    Help Needed to get Filters Using "Include" and "Exclude" multiple values on one column.

    HI Guys,

    I have this file with me with about 25k products and I have to categorize them based on their name, so the best way to do so is filter them based on values and give all the same category name, however if I use terms I get values that are not required and i would Like to exclude those from the result set.

    I wanted to know if its possible to filter values based on one column has "Include" and remove the results that contain matches from the values in the second column " Exclude" and this should be realtime, like when I type in a word and I hit enter it should filter or some button i can click that will rerun the filters.

    I've attached a file and a sample search, show all results that have "fish" but dont show those that have book,guide, charts, in this example there are only 2 columns to be filtered, title & description. The filter should be done on the Title column and that will be constant.

    any ideas on how I can do this? with some form? or something that can just use two columns to filter data?

    Any help is really appreciated guys, I have 200k file to work on next and this could really make my work easier, I've always loved the help and love giving out reputation and shoutouts!

    Thanks

    Alfred

    Hi Alfred,

    I would suggest you to look into "Advanced Filter" option of Excel.. where you can give multiple criteria for inclusion / exclusion as "Criteria" somewhere in that sheet.

    Hi Dilipandey,

    As I said, in the post, i;ve tried Advanced filter, but its not worth having to keep setting it up everytime, Im looking for a realtime filter. Im looking to create a form/macro that will do it for me.

    Cheers

    Alfred
