Sorting and filtering are tools that help you organize your data. Sorting arranges things in alphabetical or numerical order. Filtering hides data based on its value, allowing you to just focus on the most relevant data. Depending on what type of data you have, you can look for text matches, numerical values, or specific date ranges.
In this video, we’ll be focusing on sorting and filtering tables, but you can also use these tools with forms, queries, and reports.
