Turning Off AutoFiltering

Using the AutoFilter feature of Excel is a powerful way to review the data in a long list. At some point you may want to undo AutoFiltering. To undo filtering, you have these options:

  • Turn off the AutoFilter feature by selecting Filter from the Data menu and then AutoFilter from the submenu.
  • Reset all filtering criteria by selecting Filter from the Data menu and then Show All from the submenu.
  • Select the pull-down arrow for a field that has criteria set, and then choose the (All) option.

What about Excel Online? There is no Filter option on the Data menu, at least once the filters are already on. I added columns, and they are not participating the autofiltering sort.
