I have a lot of data that I need to filter. I did it in another page and that's good... but now I need to put some values in that page... and transfer that data to the original.

This is the formula I'm using:

=FILTER( Responses!A2:E300 ; Responses!D2:D300=B1)

Data will be in Colummn F

In the original sheet you can use the INDEX function to extract a value from the filtered sheet:

=INDEX(reference, row, column, range)

So, to give an example:

=INDEX(SORT!B:B, 200, 1)

The INDEX function may not be part of the FILTER function, otherwise you get a circular reference error.
