Hi

Is there a way to use a data validation drop down list to filter results instead of adding a data filter.

The reason I ask is to simplify the filter process for not so computer literate people so they don't have to go through the process of unselecting all the selecting the required field.

I know the data filter is not complicated but a drop down menu would be easier for some folk.

cheers
