How To Group Data In Excel: A Step-By-Step Guide

Grouping data in Excel allows you to organize and manipulate data sets easily. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to group data in Excel:

  1. Open your Excel spreadsheet and select the data that you want to group. This can be a single column or multiple columns.

  2. Click on the "Data" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.

  3. Click on the "Group" button in the "Outline" group.

  4. In the "Grouping" dialog box, select the options you want to use for grouping. You can choose to group by rows or columns, and set the starting and ending values for your groups.

  5. Click "OK" to apply the grouping to your selected data.

  6. Your data will now be grouped and outlined based on your selected options. To collapse or expand a group, click on the small plus or minus sign to the left of the group.

  7. To remove grouping, simply select the grouped data, click on the "Data" tab, and then click the "Ungroup" button in the "Outline" group.
