I have an excel spreadsheet with data that i am look to execute a query to filter it. I want to filter the data in "Measures List" tab by executing a query on the "Input" tab. The issue is I don't know how to query on multiple variables for each criteria.

So for example, I want to be able to select High & Medium in the Impact Potential column and also a number of time frames in the "Total Time" column & also be able to search for a wildcard in the Focus Area & Responsibility columns.

Can anyone help me on this?

You should populate a criteria range with your filtering data and the apply an advancedfilter to the data.  See the attached workbook for an example.

Also, I've done an EE podcast on advanced filtering, which is viewable on the EE YouTube channel, which you might want to watch.

I manually applied the AdvancedFilter.  Advanced Filter is one of your filtering options.

The video shows the VBA statements that can be used to apply an advanced filter.

I provided the data range and the criteria range to the AdvancedFilter dialog.  You can change the criteria cells (there are three rows, including the column name row) and reapply the Advanced Filter.
