Hi,

Can a filter be placed on the "author"?  Much like a filter is placed in excel but I want the filter to be in word.  I realize there is only one author so you cant filter but this file is pared down.

thank you

This looks like data that should be in excel, not word. Are you able to switch to excel, and if not, what is word giving you that excel is not?

I probably could copy and paste to excel and filter there.  I have code in word that extracts the tracked changes to word.  I thought that I could filter in word.  I guess i can  not do this?  thank you

There is no filter function like that in word that I am aware of. There is a sort function though, if that is of interest to you. It is found under the Layout ribbon, which is the last ribbon visible when clicked on a table.

I should mention, I am using Word 2010 to view that document. I can't remember off the top of my head if 2003 or 2007 have that sort feature as well, but none of them can filter.

Hi, I think the sort function is good enough.  I did forget about it.  I see I can sort by multiple columns.   Thank you for the help!
