When you have an array of data in Excel you can quickly select an item and press the AutoFilter button which will filter that selection in your data.

You can then go over to another column within your data and select another item, apply the same steps above and further filter your data.

This is a quick and easy way to drill down into your data.

For this trick to work you need to put the AutoFilter button in the Quick Access Toolbar by going to File > Options > Quick Access Toolbar.

Then you need to go to Choose commands from > All Commands > AutoFilter > Add > OK

You can then click anywhere in your data, click the AutoFilter button in your Quick Access Toolbar and see the magic!
