Are you familiar with Auto Filter?
Highlight all column headers and all the data below -
then select Data - Autofilter.

Is that what you want?
You can set multiple filter criteria in the column header drop-downs.

Select Data - Autofilter again to turn it off, if you want it off.

[libreoffice-users] Nested Drop-down List

Hope that all are well.

I am using LO (x64) on desktop Win10 Home.

I want to fine tune a LO Calc file by adding a column that includes a Category drop-down menu, but I find that I might have need for subcategories, in some cases, to avoid a very long list of items.

I recall viewing a tutorial about what I am calling "nested drop-down menu list", whereby if an option in the parent drop-down is selected, a second, a third, ... etc. drop-down list is then opened, if they exist. For example, if one option is utilities, a second drop-down is opened showing, e.g. telephone, electricity, heating fuel, water, etc., as further, optional, selections.

Unfortunately, I cannot recall if the tutorial was for Excel or Apache Open Office or Libre Office.

Can somebody point me to a */Libre Office/* video tutorial or within the LO Help that covers "nested drop down list"? "Nested drop-down menu list" is most probably an incorrect key word text string.

Thanks for reading this.
