Hey!
Excelchat Expert 07/05/2018 - 11:56
It appears you have a question on fllters - correct?
User 07/05/2018 - 11:56
Yes!
Excelchat Expert 07/05/2018 - 11:57
Is this an assignment question or do you have a sheet we need to look at along with your questions?
User 07/05/2018 - 11:57
Just an assignment question.
Excelchat Expert 07/05/2018 - 11:58
Ok. I will set up a table of line and go thru each possible answer-is that how you would like to proceed?
User 07/05/2018 - 11:59
Yeah sure
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:02
Ok, in looking at the possible answers, like most of this type we can toss out a couple out right.
User 08/05/2018 - 12:02
Which ones?
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:03
I will try to illustrate in the viewer, but bear with me
User 08/05/2018 - 12:03
Yeah no problem
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:04
Never mind , this viewer does not have all the functions and will waste your time
User 08/05/2018 - 12:04
No problem, wjatever's best
User 08/05/2018 - 12:04
*whatever's\
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:05
Lets toss out a: because merely right cllicking on the column wont sort; just brings up the options.
User 08/05/2018 - 12:05
sounds right
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:06
Let's toss out D; since a standard table has no row of totals at the bottom
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:06
Not sure how that would work it it did.
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:07
C: c. Click the Filter button in the Sort and Filter group on the Data tab i possible
User 08/05/2018 - 12:07
is C right or wrong?
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:08
The question says by the contents of a single column; so need to think about it.
User 08/05/2018 - 12:09
yeah
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:09
need to just read the question it says NOT filter.
User 08/05/2018 - 12:10
true
User 08/05/2018 - 12:10
wtf is Amelia doing right now
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:10
So instead of debating which is better B or C;
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:11
We need to find the worst answer, which is D:
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:11
No way will that start or finish a sort.
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:11
The others either do the job or start the job.
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:11
Make sense ; sorry the print is a bit small and I missed the NOT.
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:12
Ok, anything else
User 08/05/2018 - 12:12
no thanks
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:12
Do we need to find out who Amelia may be??
User 08/05/2018 - 12:13
yeah we do
Excelchat Expert 08/05/2018 - 12:13
Ok, thanks for bearing with me and please stop by with any questions.
User 08/05/2018 - 12:13
