Filtering Unordered Lists in Excel – Excel Tips

So here is the problem.  You, your Momma and your sister all made separate grocery lists.  Yours is beer, beer, pizza and beer.

But you Mom and sister are a bit less dignified, they have fruit, salad, nuts, etc.  You know…  Mom food.

Now these lists are very unstructured.  Salad may be in position 17 for your Mom, position 3 for your sister.  Beer shows up 3 times on your list, your sister has it listed in last place, and your Mom can’t believe that you really need more beer.

Seriously, Rick?  More beer?

Anywhoo…  this is a problem in Excel.  Things aren’t in order (and not just because beer is at the bottom of my sister’s list).  Never fear, sriracha gulping Oz du Soleil comes to the rescue with this tip on filtering unordered lists in Excel.
