FILTER function - Zoho Sheet - Help Guide

FILTER

Tests a given range and returns a filtered version of the cell range that meets the specified conditions.

 

Syntax

 

FILTER(range; condition; [condition1];...)

range: The source range to be filtered. Eg., A2:E28

condition: The conditions used to filter out the given data range. Eg., C2:C28=H1

 

Remarks

  • The FILTER function will return an array as a result, the size of which changes based on the source range, thus making it spill into adjacent cells.
