Excel Filter using reference cell

I have sheet I would like to filter using a reference cell "B2" which will have value like 2000

I have dataset that starts on row 5 and on column B, it will have values like: 2000, 2100, 2200, and etc.

I would like it so users can enter value in cell B2; and the data will automatically filter by using column B.

Hi,

You could actually do this by using a so called Advanced filter. The request sort of reads like a definition of the advanced filter. In the filter part you write the heading of column B (That would be cell B1), and in B2 the value (2000).

Than you just update the filter when the value changes.

Have a nice day.

Hi,

here is an example. You can change the value and than just press Advanced in the sort and filter group of the data ribbon.

Good luck.
