Can excel filter characters other than letters/numbers?

RE: Filtering

Hi Nicola

Thanks for your question

The simple answer is yes. You can filter by any character that you can insert into a cell. The character will appear in the auto filter combo in the same way that letters and digits also do

Excel tip:

Editing Formulas in Excel Cells

Although people like to edit a formula in the Formula bar, you can also edit a formula in the cell.

To do this select the cell and press "F2". This puts Excel into Edit mode, and you can move around in the cell and make any necessary changes.

Double-clicking the cell also puts Excel in Edit mode.
