Simple Excel problem regarding filtering

Hi Experts,

I have designed an excel to tell the distribution of various workstation types, their models at some venues.

As shown in the attached sample Excel that I have designed, we faced several problems:

While the filtering is working properly by filtering "Workstation Type",  how can I make it work by filtering "Venues" (or both "Workstation Type" and "Venues"), such that I can show for the total for each workstation type.

What I mean is that I would like to show also all types of workstations in the second section (i.e. the total for each type of workstation) by only filtering "Venues".

Please be noted that I don't want to use VBA, since the Excel will be viewed also by other colleagues that are not good at Excel.

Thank you for your help.

I changed your formulas in C23:K27 to a simpler version.  I also added an asterisk in cell A28.  If you change the asterisk to V1, your totals will change to show V1's workstations.

Hi buttersk,  Thanks a lot. It is working, but can I make it to be combined into a single filter (i.e. filtering on the table above only) and the total is reflected in the pivot table also?

IrogSinta, your solution is also good, but I don't know how it can work if I select multiple venues.
