I have a very big table, and searching for a string can take a few seconds. However, I only want to search in a particular column. Even when a column is selected, Numbers searches the entire table. How can I constrain the search to the selected column?

  • Very annoying you can replace text using a selection. – Simonb Jan 7 '19 at 11:53

You can filter data in numbers using filtering data , in that you can select the row/column set the rule , keyword to be searched can be set there itself. For more details Link

  • If nothing else exists I guess that'll have to do, but then I can't look at surrounding data if I want easily (since it's filtered). So no way to just constrain the search? – Vladimir Gritsenko Aug 17 '16 at 8:04
