How do I filter using multiple columns in Excel?



I am doing a database in which I need to filter a certain word in Column E OR
Column F OR column G.
It's a DB for a large number of music auditions in which the word "Band"
might appear in any of those three columns, and I need to do a filter which
shows all data rows that have "Band" in ANY of those three columns.

How can I accomplish this?

I am using Excel '97.

Thanks in advance!!

Add a helper column and enter a formula like this:


Copy down as needed

Then filter on this column = x.
