    Managing Filtering of Rows of User Data
    In This Topic

    You can create filters for data. The basic steps are to create a filter and then assign the filter to a column. You can specify certain details for the filter such as creating a background color for filtered and non-filtered rows with a style filter or creating a hide row filter that hides the rows.

    Spread provides several types of filtering, simple and enhanced. The simple filtering is the style of filtering provided in this and previous releases of Spread. The enhanced filtering is similar to Excel's filter feature. Spread also provides a filter bar that uses the enhanced filtering options.

    Each type of filtering provides a way for users to change data's appearance or temporarily hide data based on conditions that they specify, as shown in the following figures. This figure illustrates the simple filter.
