Hello
I have an excel sheet like this example
Name      City       State      Age      Occupation
Jack      Boston      MA       25-40      Student
Paul      Miami      FL      40-50      Vetern
Nick      Boston      MA      40-50      Veteran
Nick      Los Angeles      CA      25-40      Business owner
                        


I want to filter the spreadsheet in an order to be able to create the customer profile for example  how many register from a specific State what is the average age and  occupation. After that a want to create a pie diagram to present the results.  
thank you

Excel has a tool called PivotChart that is perfect for your application.

Put your data in a Table
1) Select any cell in your data
2) Use the Insert...Table menu item (and click the prompt OK) to turn the data into a Table. Make sure the box for "My table has headers" is checked.

Create a PivotTable with PivotChart
1) Select any cell in your data
2) Use the Insert...PivotTable...PivotChart menu item and click OK in the resulting wizard. This will create a blank PivotTable on a new worksheet.

1) Drag State into the Axis field
2) Drag Name into the Values field
3) Right-click the chart and choose Change Chart Type ....Pie chart

Repeat the steps to create a PivotTable with PivotChart on previous page plus this one for Age and Occupation

The preceding instructions are written around Excel 2007 and 2010.

Excel 2003 and earlier will vary somewhat because there is no Table feature. You can use a dynamic named range instead with a Refers to formula like:
=$A$1:INDEX($E:$E,COUNTA($E:$E))

If the wizard uses a fixed address for the data, replace it with the name of the Table (or the dynamic named range).

If you add, delete or change data, you will need to right-click your charts and choose Refresh to get them to update.
