excel – Filter multiple columns with non blanks

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’m attempting to filter columns D, E, G, H, I all at the same time. I need to
display rows that have values and filter off blanks in all the columns simultaneously.
Does anybody know if it’s even possible to do what I’m trying to do?

How to&Answers:

It is not a straightforward task, but can be achieved if you make a new column typing in the formula:

IF(OR(ISBLANK(D2:I2)),1,0) and hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

Now, you can filter this column and all the rows having even a single blank entry would be filtered.

Also, if you want to filter only when all entries are blank in these columns, you can replace the OR with AND.
