    Filter Using Contains

    Is there a way to filter using contain. I need to change the following code to pull up anything that has the array below in it. For instance: "QA Approval (Amended) Offer 3"" should pull up.

    You can use an array with filter with many criteria, but if you want to include asterisk * for partial match, it works with 2 criteria ONLY

    You could put a compilation of what you're looking for into a single named list, then use a set of formulas to filter instead of the values, using the formula:
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    where "A1" is the value in the column you would have been filtering and "mylist" is the name of the list of things you want to find contained in the values in column A, then filter the column of these formulas for TRUE.
