AutoFilter Menu Dialog Box

Looking for help with Power Pivot in Excel 2013? Go to Power Pivot Help on Office.com.

The AutoFilter menu enables you to sort and filter data in the PowerPivot window. To access this menu, in the heading of the column on which you want to filter or sort, click the down arrow.

To filter by one or more columns, select specific columns from a field list, or specify criteria in the Custom Filter Dialog Box. Filters are additive, which means that each additional filter is based on the current filter and further reduces the subset of data. For more information, see Filter Data in a Table.

The following list describes options for text columns.

Clear Sort from '[FieldName]'

Clear any sorting that is based on the selected column. If no columns are sorted, data is displayed in the same order that it was when it was originally imported.
