As an example:
I highlight columns C, D, and E.
Click Data, Filter, AutoFilter
Column C, D, and E now have the arrows to filter

In column A and B there is some information.

Is it possible to make it such, that when C, D, or E are filtered that it does not effect column A or B at all?

Despite being able to select which columns to AutoFilter it effects every row that is not part of the AutoFilter columns.

Anyway to restrict the rows filtered to just the columns selected for AutoFilter?

I am using Excel 2000

Thanks

If what you mean is, "I want to see all rows in Cols A & B, and only the filtered rows in C - E", then the answer is no.

The AutoFilter hides rows that do not fit the criteria, and only entire rows can be hidden.

Let's take a step back: what are you trying to accomplish, and can you supply a sample file?
