Using Auto Filters

AutoFilters are similar to regular Project filters, but you can access them directly on the sheet of any sheet view instead of using a menu or a window. By default, the AutoFilters option is off when you create a project, but you can enable it by clicking the AutoFilter button on the Formatting toolbar.

When you enable AutoFilters, a list box arrow appears at the right edge of every column name in a sheet view. When you open the drop-down list, Project displays filters that are appropriate to the column, as shown in Figure 7-32.
