When your collection of data reaches a certain size, it's essential to have a way to see just part of it.  Zooming in on just those items of interest, gives you a focused view-port of your collection.

The Compleat Botanica's filtering capability is intuitive to use.  By choosing which columns to include, you build a specialized view of your data.  By choosing which rows to include or exclude you narrow your view to a subset of that data.  Put together, you've got a sorted table of just the information you want.  All of this is accomplished with a point-and-click approach that eliminates any complicated Boolean logic.  Multiple filters give you the ability to switch your view-port with ease.
