Creating a database using Excel

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I want to create a database for movies and I need to put a link to the website which brings the synopsis of these movies. I also want to have a brief description of each movie, though not inserted by myself.

I am facing this problem with the Excel spreadsheet. Could anybody help me to solve this filter problem?

Creating a database using Excel


Hi Andy,

That is very possible with MS Excel. All you have to do encodes your data in tabular form where in every column contains similar data.

Tabular form where in every column contains similar data.

Like for example in the attached sheet. Column A contains the Title of the movies, Column B contains the description and Column C contains the URL of the movies respectively.

In this way, you can easily filter your data depending on what you are looking for. Aside from that, you can also use this worksheet as part of your database in MS Access or in any application that supports excel files.

To filter, just follow below steps:

1. Select the 1st row that contains the heading/name of every column. Based on our example, select row 1.

2. Click Data Menu.

3. Among the ribbon, find the Sort & Filter group.

Sort & Filter group

4. Click on the Filter button.

Hope this helps.
