To apply multiple filters to a Pivot Table at once in Excel, select a cell in the Pivot Table, and then go to the Options tab in the ribbon. From there, click the Filter drop-down menu, and then choose “Label Filters”. This will bring up a dialogue box, where you can select multiple filters to apply to the Pivot Table. Once you have finished selecting your filters, click “OK” to apply the filter. This will apply all of the selected filters to the Pivot Table at once.

By default, Excel only allows you to apply one filter per field in a pivot table.

However, we can change this default setting by using the **PivotTable Options** button.

The following example shows exactly how to do so.

**Example: Apply Multiple Filters to Excel Pivot Table**

Suppose we have the following pivot table in Excel that shows the total sales of various products:

Now suppose we click the dropdown arrow next to **Row Labels**, then click **Label Filters**, then click **Contains**:

And suppose we choose to filter for rows that contain “shirt” in the row label:

Now suppose we would also like to filter for rows where the sum of sales is greater than 10.

We can click the dropdown arrow next to **Row Labels**, then click **Value Filters**, then click **Greater Than**:

We can then filter for rows where the sum of sales is greater than 10:

However, notice that the previous label filter has been removed.

By default, Excel does not allow multiple filters in one field in a pivot table.

In the new window that appears, click the **Totals & Filters** tab, then check the box next to **Allow multiple filters per field**, then click **OK**:

Now if we filter once again for rows that contain “shirt” then Excel will allow this label filter and the previous value filter to be applied at once:

Notice that we’re able to filter the pivot table to only show rows that contain “shirt” *and* where the sum of sales is greater than 10.
