AutoFilter equivalent in Google Docs Spreadsheets?
October 7, 2008 2:28 PM   Subscribe

I want to be able to filter my data in Google Docs Spreadsheets like the Data > Filter > AutoFilter function in Excel 2003.

I am fairly familiar with Excel, but still learning my way around Google Docs Spreadsheets. The help file on the filter function confuses me:
http://docs.google.com/support/spreadsheets/bin/answer.py?answer=82712&query=FILTER&searchSyntaxExact=1

I just want to do something like the AutoFilter command. Is that even possible? If not, any suggestions for how to set up alternatives?

Thanks!

Try this link, then this one. On the second link, scroll down to the bottom and follow the instructions:

Drag this button: [Open in AutoFilter] to your bookmarks toolbar to install the bookmarklet. To use it, click the bookmarklet when you're visiting the Spreadsheets document you want to auto-filter.

Let me know how it works, I'm a bit curious myself!
