Filter for a Word Table

Copper Contributor

I am trying to find a way for users to easily apply filters to a Word document.  I have found articles relating to creating a FilterTable macro and assigning it to a button or shape in the document etc but nothing I've tried seems to work in Word 365 (or I just don't understand it - which is quite possible!).


My users need something simple which is why I haven't just used a filtered Excel sheet.


Is there a way to say create a VB front end that would enable users to select simple (cell name) search criteria and get results?  Sorry of I'm asking too much but I just don't want to go down the Excel route with lots of re-formatting and needing to write explanations of how to filter and reset for the next user.


Many thanks in advance for any help or advice provided.
