Display first xx records of each date in Excel

Last Modified: 2019-01-25
I have a large spreadsheet that is sorted by date and time.  I only want to show the first 10 records of each date.  I.e., the first 10 records of 1/1/19, first 10 of 1/2/19, etc.  What's the best way to accomplish that?

You could add a column to the data counting the number of occurrences of a particular date and then apply a filter to that column which restricts the visible rows to the first 10.

Some sample data would help, can you upload a dummy file?


Thanks, Rob.  I have attached a sample file.
