    Advanced Filter not producing the desired result

    Hello,

    I am using Advanced Filter to filter a list. See the screenshot enclosed.

    The correct filter result here would be the yellow cells (rows 6 to 10).

    However, the filter result only shows rows 7 to 10.

    Any idea what I am doing wrong here ?

    Thanks.

    Re: Advanced Filter not producing the desired result

    Does this when I click on OK in the advanced filter dialog (Excel 365):

    Excel 2016 (Windows) 32 bit
    A
    B
    4
    Code Description
    7
    060002BB article 3
    8
    060003 article 4
    9
    060005 article 5
    10
    060006 article 6
    Sheet: Sheet1

    It's to do with the fact that these are text values, and not number values, I think.

    OK, I was not aware about the cross posting rule... Will do so in the future.

    Meanwhile, the issue has been solved.

    Thanks

    Re: Advanced Filter not producing the desired result

    Right, well:

    1. Share the cross-post link as instructed (unless you wish to incur a further infraction).
    2. Share the solution.
    3. READ THE FORUM RULES to which you agreed when you joined, and therefore about which you should not be unaware.
