Filter a table

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

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.

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

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!
