I would like to filter out the word computer. The problem is that I have the word computer in multiple columns. So if a row has the word computer, no matter what column, I'd like that row to appear and to hide the rest. Also, Is it also possible to have this selection in an input box. Whatever I type in the input box, than that will be my filter selection. Is this possible, thanks in advance

Hi davidhall80

You can use the advanced filter. In the criteria search for the word in all the columns where you have data.

Hope this helps
