I have a list that I would like to be filtered based on the value in a cell.
In the attached file, there are two sheets.
The first sheet is the complete list of books and authors.
The second sheet is a filtered list based on "*mi* being contained in the author's name.
I would like to change the value of *mi* to something else and have the list automatically filtered.
