filter columns in excel

I have 2 columns in an excel sheet that I want to filter. The cells in each column contains either "YES" or "NO".
I only want to show the rows which have a "YES" in one or both columns. (In other words, hide rows that have "NO" in both columns). I am not sure how to do this by filtering/sorting.

You could use a third column

=OR(A2="Yes",B2="Yes")

that will give TRUE in the columns you want. Filter by that third column

You want to use autofilter.

Either select the whole data section, or if it is a table i think you only need to select a cell.
Then turn on autofilter

You will get a drop-down filter tool in each column heading that you can use to adjust filtering.

I knew how to do it using an additional column but I wanted to see if there was away to filter it without adding another column
