Using a Directory of Educational Institutions

To learn more about these types of functions use the package help function

These directories are easiest to use when you download the excel workbook of the directory you wish to use to your desktop so that you can use the full range of excel features including find, sort and filter.

You can use the find function to search for a specific institute if you have its name/number. Sorting and filtering make it easier to find and analyse the education institute data. Excel allows you to sort your worksheet by using information from one or more columns, for example, by school type and region. Sorting has the effect of placing records, in this case education institutions, with the same sort criteria next to each other. Filtering allows you to block out records you don’t want to see, leaving a view of the data you are interested in.

Instructions to filter document

  1. Click on the row number with the column headings
  2. Go to [Data]  [Filter]  [AutoFilter] (Drop down arrows will appear in the column headings)
  3. From here, you can select the data you require by using the drop down arrows
For example
For the schooling directory, if you wish to identify all full primary schools in Upper Hutt
  1. Go to column ‘R’ Territorial Local Authority click down arrow, select Upper Hutt City, then go to column ‘N’ Type select Full Primary
  2. When you have finished your query simply click on the columns you filtered and select all to display all the institutions again
