I have a list of people (by rows) and their favorite colors(by columns). I want to be able to have a drop down that will create a table that will show everyone with favorite colors of either red blue or green. I also want to be able to select the person in the column to see the colros they listed. How di I do that in the most efficient way?

Source Data

Red Blue Green Yellow Purple Black.....
Joe 1 3 2
Bob 4 2 1
Sue 1 3 4

Example of Result after Sort

Black Purple
Joe 2
Sue 4
Bob 1




Thanks!

Hi there, welcome to the board!

You can't post data like that, as you can see, it won't show up right. You need to read the FAQ and download/install Colo's HTML Maker to post an example of your spreadsheet. I think that will shed some light on your question.
