Before you watch your first video you need to know three things!
1. This is a walk-through and not a stand-alone video lesson
The walk-through is intended to be used only with an e-book or paper book. Read and work through the printed lesson first. Only watch the video walk-through if you have difficulty with it.
2. Video walk-throughs do not have a sound track
Reading out the lesson steps (shown in the captions) wouldn't add any value. If a wordy narrative was added it would bloat the walk-through and make it less useful for its intended purpose.
3. Make sure that you use the interactive transcript and e-book button
Jump straight to the step you need to see using the interactive transcript. window. Just click on the step you need. Play with the other buttons too - you'll never have seen some of the features our player has before.
OK - I’ve got it! Don't show this again.

This video lesson shows how to use functions within advanced filters in Excel 2016. This allows you to extract every 5th row by using the MOD function within an advanced filter. As well as the MOD function, this lesson also explains the ROW function and how you can use it to simplify your function-driven advanced filter criteria. You'll also see how to use the EXACT function to enable case-sensitive criteria, as filters are case insensitive by default.
