@DM_G0 Well, why don't you share with us what kind of data you are working with and what the outcome should be?
If it's just the FILTER function you want to learn more about, check the link below.

Thank you for responding to my question, as you can see I would like to input for example the first letter or number on cell B1 while upon doing this action I would like the data to collapse and open automatically while I input a value whether is a number or text
my problem with this is that i do not know the formula for this.

@DM_G0 I'm afraid it's not clear. B1 doesn't seem to be part of your data table.

Hopefully this would be more clear, it gives me a value error.

If you'd like organize the bar which automatically filter the range as you type in this bar - afraid there are no formulas for that. To filter the range after you type the text in "search bar" cell and press Enter - maybe, with VBA programming.
FILTER() function doesn't filter range in place. It takes the range, apply to it filtering conditions and copy result into another place, starting from the cell where you enter formula.

I don't know of a way to filter as you type using standard excel functions. You can do it using textboxes for the input, but it does require some vba.
There are instructions here how to set it up.
Also, I attached an example file you can look at (right click on the worksheet tab, select view code, and you will see the macro code). One thing I did differently is I did not use a linked cell, I just changed the macro code to pull the value directly from the textbox instead of getting it from the linked cell.

This is exactly what i wanted but your using an ActiveX component. i have excel 365 on my MacBook Microsoft via apple doesn't allow me to use activeX only only vba and macro.
