# Advanced filtering - formula criteria

#### PATSYS

##### Well-known Member
Hi all,

I have the following simplified data:

Field1 Field2
a in
b in
a out
c in

I would like to filter all the Field1 values where the Field2 value is "out".

In the example above, I would like a filter that will show all the "a" in Field1.

Field1 Field2
a in
a out

Can this be done? I'd imagine will require formula criteria.

Thanks

### Excel Facts

Convert text numbers to real numbers
Select a column containing text numbers. Press Alt+D E F to quickly convert text to numbers. Faster than "Convert to Number"
Got it.

Assuming my table is in J8:K12

=J9=INDEX(\$J9:\$J\$12,MATCH("out",\$K9:\$K\$12,0))

It is amazing how the prompts (\$) makes a lot of difference in the formula criteria.
