Chapter 7. Finding, Filtering, and Sorting

Chapter 7. Finding, Filtering, and Sorting

If a table has only a handful of records, it's easy to scroll through it and find the information you need. But if you're the impatient type, or if your table has too many records to scroll through, you can search for records that fit any criteria you care to define.

You can also filter and sort your data. Though filtering and sorting are similar, they have one important difference: where sorting a table arranges the table's records according to the criteria you set, filtering finds records that match a set of criteria, and hides any remaining records in the table. You can sort your filter's results as well, so don't think filtering and sorting are mutually exclusive.
