    Filter on Multiple Colours in Excel 2007

    Is there a way to filter on more than one colour at a time in Excel 2007? I have a column where certain cells have been coloured according to their content (the majority of cells are not coloured) and I need to be able to display just the coloured cells, as they are the ones I need to work on.

    Hoping someone can help me.

    Check out MS MVP Chip Pearson's Primer and code for sorting at: http://www.cpearson.com/excel/SortByColor.aspx

    Using the functions you can create a column with cells contining an indicator of the color of the cell (or tell if it is colored) and filter on this column.
