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.
