Thank you for the compliment.
If any civilwarwest members get their posts through e-mail and not
through the website, my message might have been confusing. The
Files section is accessed through the website, although I can e-mail
the spreadsheet to those who may want the file.
I just opened up the file and, at least on my PC, could select
Data/Filter/Autofilter. This allowed me to go the
rightmost "battles" column, choose one battle from the dropdown
button, and see those articles with the name of the battle in the
title of the article. Be warned that not all articles--even
including some with the name of the battle in the title--will be
If I improve the spreadsheet in the future, I'll post it. One
thought is to have a new column--or use "battles"--to contain the
name of any general who is the subject of an article. The list of
battles could, of course, be extended to other actions.
I hope that this proves useful.
