Hi all,

I'm trying to create a excel table of organizations for other people to be able to filter and look for specific organizations.

One of the fields you can use to filter the table is "Service areas", which can include things like employment, disability, housing, and etc. Many of the organizations have multiple services, and I want to be able to list all the services in one cell, but have each service be sortable from the header drop down. For example, if Org ABC does disability and housing, there is a way I can type "disability, housing" in the corresponding Services cell, and have the organization show up when someone filters to see either "disability" or "housing"?

I can only think of creating duplicate entries of an organization for each of its services, but this seems cumbersome, so if you know of a better way, please share! Thank you so much :)

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

Second question, if I have a field for service locations, is there a way to make sure an entry with service locations "ALL" shows up under every filter?
