I have a simple list of data with one column headed NAME and several columns each headed with a month of the year (Jan, Feb etc). What I am looking to do is filter the list so that those individuals in the name column who have no data for any of the months are hidden - leaving those rows that contain either some, or complete data. In other words I want to hide blank rows in my data area.
Autofilter doesn't work as "nonblank" only filters by a single column. I've tried an advanced filter using a criteria range with a blank first line and computed criteria =isblank(a2)=FALSE etc but whilst that gets rid of the completely empty rows it also removes the rows that are partially complete!!
Any suggestions?

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.
One way to do this:

Add an additional column which will contain a condition formula (eg: if(b1="",if(c1="",if(d1="","Hide")))

Filter on this column where value is HIDE

Just put a total at the end of the data (=sum) and the filter on >0

Thanks for that Yeheya - did the trick - I've adjusted the formula slightly by putting an AND function in as part of the logical test (not quite so many brackets that way!!) and it's working like a charm.
