    Auto Filter won't sort

    For some reason I have a worksheet that won't sort stuff by Autofilter any more. I built it as a customer database but for some reason today I just can't get the names to ascend or descend.
    Hopefully there is something simple I can check for, I can post an empety sheet if needed but right now I can't really post a list of all my customers info.
    Thanks!

    Sure let's see an empty sheet...

    Just kidding

    Are there any merged cells on the sheet??

    no

    The first is pretty much just a bunch of columns named Customer No., Name, Phone, Street, ect.

    There are other pages though that pull information using stuff like
    =IF('Contact Info'!B12=0," ",'Contact Info'!B12)
    so I don't have to retype the names and numbers for their history and stuff but that is about it.

    The first sheet doesn't even have a single formula or link to another cell in it. Just a long list of names and stuff with autofilter on the top row.

    Try this, remove Auto-filter from your column headers, then re-select all of your data table and re-apply Auto-filter
