How to include filter in the column list

Hi Experts,
      I am stucked with a problem.I want to know how can I include filtering option on any column so that users can view data that they want to see. i.e. Suppose my report has three columns, CustomerType, Orders, Quantity and I want not to filter the data from the stored procedure but need the user to filter out on the basis of their requirement, and again not by choosing the parameter, something like what we have in Excel sheet, the one I have attached here, how will I do that? I tried using filter option in the SSRS but that's not showing any option for the user. Rather its just doing filtering on the set of condtitions we are giving while preparing the report. Can someone help me out here? Please let me know if I am not clear. Example.xlsx Example.xlsx Example.xlsx

The only way to do such stuff is using , parameters or the visibility options

So, we don't have any facility that excel sheet provides. In that case, what is the use of filter option?

filter is using operators such as = > < , if filters records, like group filter to get the first 30 records.

that will give you better idea

As huslayer said, the filter options in SSRS are indeed not meant for what you're trying to do.  In fact, they are best avoided if possible: performance-wise it's better to filter your data directly on the source (using the WHERE clause in your dataset query or stored proc).

As for your requirement: perhaps it's an option for the users to first export the report to Excel and apply their custom filters in Excel?

Sorry, but even though your problem is not solved and it wasn't mentioned specifically, you did actually get an answer.  That answer is "it's not possible"...
