Excel - Advanced Filters

Excel filters are great for seeing just a subset of your data. You can use filters for text, numbers, and dates, but also by color. You can use font color or fill color (the paint can). You can also use Advanced Filters. You Advanced Filters when you are looking at multiple fields but for different criteria. For example, I want to filter and only see people in Georgia and New York. That is easy to do and can be done with the drop-down filter. But, for Georgia, I want to see people who are Single, and for New York, I want to see Family. That requires an Advanced Filter.
