Why Use Color

Perhaps, at one-time, color sorting and filtering wasn’t available, but you can do it now. The tutorial below can be used for font colors or cell color. For these instructions, I’ll be using Microsoft Office 365. However, the steps can be used in older Excel versions.

It’s probably my laziness, but I find it useful to change a cell’s background color. I might use this when I’m prioritizing or grouping a list. I need to highlight a cell and choose a background color.

In my screen snap above, I’ve applied the cell background color to Column C. However, some people might prefer using color across a row. In the second screenshot below, I used conditional formatting. Regardless of whether you’re using columns or rows, the process is the same. It also works with Excel tables.

How to Sort by Color in Excel

Tick the My data has headers checkbox in the top-right if your worksheet uses them.

Select your first fill color and keep the Order value as On Top.

Add in your other color levels. If you prefer, you can also use the On Bottom option.

You should now see your sorted list by color. You’re not limited to just 3 colors, but you can keep adding if they’re on your sheet. You also don’t need to enter the last color as Excel will put it on the bottom. In my case, that was ” No Cell Color.”

Select the column you wish to filter that has color.

Select your cell color from the side menu.

The same process works if you wish to sort by font color.

How to Filter by Color in Excel

Excel allows you to sort and filter by color

The color can be either the cell background color or font color

You can place colors on top or bottom

The system knows which colors you’ve used

No cell color is for normal cells

You can add multiple color sorts

Sort rules are processed in order

Some people prefer to filter instead of sort. This is great if you want to focus in on certain items. Even better, the procedure is shorter.

In my example, I was using a background color. However, when I added colored text, Excel adjusted the options. On the side menu for Filter by Color, you would also see Filter by Font Color.

Select all the cells in the list. This is the safest approach to sorting. In most cases, you can select one cell and Excel will correctly detect the rest of the list — but it’s not 100% certain. Some of the data may be missed.

Sort Data by 4+ Columns

Occasionally, you may need to sort by more than three columns. For example, in a mailing list, you may want to sort by Country, Region, City, and Name. To do this, you can sort the list multiple times, starting with the least important sort.

In the mailing list, there are four columns to sort. Name and City are the least important fields in the sorting process, so they can be sorted first.

Excel will retain what it can of this sort while you sort by the remaining fields.

From the Sort by dropdown, select Country.

From the Then by dropdown, select Region.

After sorting, the list is sorted by Country, then by Region, then by City and finally by Name.

How To Sort And Filter Data In Excel

Sorting and filtering data offers a way to cut through the noise and find (and sort) just the data you want to see. Microsoft Excel has no shortage of options to filter down huge datasets into just what’s needed.


The first and most obvious way to sort data is from smallest to largest or largest to smallest, assuming you have numerical data.

We can apply the same sorting to any of the other columns, sorting by the date of hire, for example, by selecting the “Sort Oldest to Newest” option in the same menu.

How to Filter Data in Excel

Because our list is short, we can do this a couple of ways. The first way, which works great in our example, is just to uncheck each person who makes more than $100,000 and then press “OK.” This will remove three entries from our list and enables us to see (and sort) just those that remain.


We can also combine filters. Here we’ll find all salaries greater than $60,000, but less than $120,000. First, we’ll select “is greater than” in the first dropdown box.

In the dropdown below the previous one, choose “is less than.”

Next to “is greater than” we’ll put in $60,000.

Next to “is less than” add $120,000.


How to Filter Data from Multiple Columns at Once

In this example, we’re going to filter by date hired, and salary. We’ll look specifically for people hired after 2013, and with a salary of less than $70,000 per year.

Add “70,000” next to “is less than” and then press “OK.”

Type “2013” into the field to the right of “is after” and then press “OK.” This will leave you only with employees who both make less than $70,000 per year who and were hired in 2014 or later.


Excel has a number of powerful filtering options, and each is as customizable as you’d need it to be. With a little imagination, you can filter huge datasets down to only the pieces of information that matter.
