probably a simple table problem

Hi there.

Ok, I have a table with 5 columns which I keep the data in.

On another sheet I want a table which arranges the data from that tabl
in ascending order, and throws out the values which have a 0 in it.

Here's an example

Barn - 1 - 0 - 1 - 2
farm - 0 - 2 - 1 - 0
firm - 2 - 1 - 0 - 0

A drop-down list picks if you arrange the data depending on column 2
3, 4 or 5.  Column 1 is never listed as a choice (of course, as it'
just the name for the thing).

Let's say we pick column 1, then the table I want puts firm at the top
then barn, and doesn't show farm.

How can I do this?

You could use Data/Filter/Autofilter.
select Custom from the dropdown at the top and set the filter to ..
"does not equal" ...... 0. Copy and paste to another sheet.

You could use Advanced Filter to copy to another sheet with colum
criteria <>0.
See Excel Help for this

BrianB:  thanks for replying.  However, I'm not sure that that is a
relevant thing.

Here's a run-down of what I want.

On one sheet, I want my original table, which I add to or edit perhaps
once a week or so.  I don't want any changes or anything done to it. 
It's supposed to be edited by me, and nothing else.

Next, on another sheet I want an instance table of the original table. 
This table could have the data-list thingy on it.. however I want a
drop-down-list which selects what column to arrange the table to
(highest value first, lowest values last), and then removes any values
which are 0.  How can I do this?

How do I make an instance of the original table?  

And my second question, how do I make a drop-down-list choose which
column to arrange the instanced table to?

I don't care if I need to do this in 2 or even 3 tables, just as long
as it gets done so it works.

Thanks for any replies.

workaround for non normalized table
I've inherited a database that relies heavily on a non normalized table. Until I can convince the general manager that I can normalize the data without losing any records, I've got to have a workaround for certain situations. Namely, I need to ensure that data is not being badly reproduced at various stages of our operations. I would therefore like to reference the information directly from the main table in order to populate certain information in related tables. In this case, the main table uses [Order Number] as its primary key, and ties it to a bunch of information like ...

Any Help would be greatly appriciated. Jeff, Given that you captured the grades into your table, it's not advisable to store the average. A general rule is... don't save a calculated value that can be "rederived" from the elements already stored in your table. You would, instead, recalculate the averages, "on the fly", in any subsequent form, query or report. -- hth A...

How to calculate probability

Assuming fair dice 4 can occur only if each die shows a 1: prob=1/6^4 5 can occur if 1 die shows 2 and the rest show 1: prob=COMBIN(4,1)/6^4 6 can occur if 1 die shows 3 and the rest show 1: prob=COMBIN(4,1)/6^4 or if 2 dice show 2 and the rest show 1: prob=COMBIN(4,2)/6^4 (add the two probabilities) 7...
