How To... Create a Simple Filter in Excel 2010

It' been a while since I made a video for my Learning with YouTube Channel. I have not posted any since early June, but I am delighted to see that while the viewing figures dropped off a bit during the summer months, there were over 70,000 views during June and July. That's an average of over 1,000 per day. Viewing figures peaked during April and May - I'm guessing that the increase in numbers reflects students checking them out for study and revision. The current total views stands at 428,316 as I write this post - at the current rate of viewing I expect to reach the half-million mark in October/November. A nice landmark that I'm looking forward to - I continue to be astonished that so many people are watching my videos and (hopefully) finding them useful. I have a lot of fun creating the videos and checking out the viewing figures.

My latest video is about the basic use of the Filtering tool in Microsoft Excel 2010. This allows you to filter out data that you do not wish to view to make data analysis a bit easier. There are more advanced uses of the filter tool, but this video is intended to get people started. I'm looking for more videos to make (suggestions welcome) - I will continue to concentrate on Excel, PowerPoint, and Problem-Solving videos. Have a look at my latest video below if you would like to learn about filtering data in a spreadsheet:
