Question:

( by Bill Blevins )

I have a primary tab in my Google Sheet with a list of "Trees" and "Shrubs" and details of each in the rows.

I'd like to add a second tab that only displays the rows from the primary tab showing "trees" and then add a third tab to do the same for "Shrubs"

What is the formula to use on the second and third tabs?

Thanks!

Solution:

Have a look at the following screenshots:

Sheet "All":

Sheet "Trees":

In the above sheet I have the following formula in Cell A1:
=query(ALL!A:J;"select * where D = 'Tree' ";1)

Or you can also try the following formula in Cell A2, after putting the column headers in first row:
=filter(ALL!A:J;ALL!D:D="Tree")

Sheet "Shrubs":

In the above sheet I have the following formula in Cell A1:
=query(ALL!A:J;"select * where D = 'Shrub' ";1)

I hope the above solution will help you, and if you need more help then please do comment below on this blog itself, I will try to help you out.
