    Filter on Conditions (Excel 2003 SP2)

    I've built a worksheet that includes a significant amount of Conditional Formatting to turn cells in Col A red if certain Conditions in other columns are met. I regularly copy updated data from an external source into this worksheet.

    I'm looking for a simple way to then filter the worksheet to show only the rows that meet the Conditions (rows where Col A is Red).

    My thought is to add another column with an IF statement that matches the Conditions (IF Condition is true, THEN "Y", ELSE " ") and then Filter on that Column.

    Is there a simpler way?

    thanks

    That is the simplest way, in my opinion. You can also then adjust the conditional formatting to simply look at the new column rather than calculating the same information twice.
