Filtering data using the Filters panel

In your analysis, you can filter to data in which you are particularly interested and filter out the rest. The filtering can be handled from the Filters panel.

For more information, see Filtering data.
Note: When you work with in-database data tables, the filters panel will initially be empty. If this is the case, you must create the filters you want to use.

To create a filter for a column in an in-database data table, move the cursor over the column in the Data in analysis flyout, and click Show filter , then Click to create a filter.


  1. If the Filters panel is not visible, click Filters on the menu bar.
    In the panel, you find filters associated with the columns in your data table. The example below shows two types of filters, check box filters and range filters.

  2. Locate the column containing the values you want to filter out.
  3. Use its filter to specify which column values to keep and which values to filter out.
    An example of a filtered column is shown below.

  4. Repeat from step 2 to filter data in another column.

    Information about which columns have been filtered, and to which values, is available at the bottom of the Filters panel. If you want to modify what has been filtered in a filter, you can open the filter also from there by simply clicking it.
    Info about filtered values in Filters panel

    Above the expanded view is shown. To collapse the filter details, click the button.

    The filtering made can be reset. Click the button to reset separate filters, or the button to reset all filters.
    Note: Any filtering action in the Filters panel also updates the filters in the Data in analysis flyout.
