Tips on Using the PBR Excel Workbook

Sorting Data

For ease of use, the data in the PBR Excel workbook is sorted five different ways:

  • Tab 1: Project Name - sorted A to Z
  • Tab 2: Developer Name - sorted A to Z
  • Tab 3: PBR Issue date - sorted newest to oldest
  • Tab 4: Megawatts - highest to lowest
  • Tab 5: Acreage - highest to lowest
  • Tab 6: County - sorted A to Z

If you do not see six tabs at the bottom of the Excel spreadsheet, ensure that the Show sheet tabs option is selected. To verify this, click File> Options> Advanced. Go to section, Display options for this workbook. Make sure the Show sheet tabs box is checked.

Filtering Data

Excel's Autofilter is activated in the PBR workbook to provide a number of filter options for the data (a small, down-pointing arrow will be located beside each column name). For example, to filter on the City/County column:

  1. click the down arrow beside City/County to active the filter list
  2. uncheck the Select all box at the top of list
  3. scroll down and check the box in front of Westmoreland
  4. click ok to see filtered results, which should only include facilities in Westmoreland Co.

To remove the filter:

  1. click the down arrow beside City/County
  2. highlight and click Clear Filter From "City/County"

The Microsoft Office website explains additional ways to filter data.
