Description squenson 2008-10-11 20:54:47 UTC
When using the auto-filter option in Calc, I obtain a different behavior in these two nearly identical cases. Case 1 ====== A | B ----- 1 | 1 1 | 2 | 2 When I filter using the column B to find the empty cells, I correctly obtain: A | B ----- 1 | Case 2 ====== t t is a text in a cell just above the header row. A | B This is the only change ----- 1 | 1 1 | 2 | 2 When I filter using the column B to find the empty cells, I incorrectly obtain: 1 | The header row has disappeared, it seems it has been considered as part of the filtering process which is incorrect in my opinion.

I checked with "Ooo 3.0.0 RC3 Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [OOO300m8 (Build9357)]" and can confirm the reported effect with "FilterWithRowAbove.ods". I found similar behaviour with an own new document. Steps to reproduce: 1. open new dochment. 2. Inserte column "A" following instructions "Case 1" in report, starting in Cell A2 3. Inserte column "B" following instructions "Case 1" in report, starting in Cell B2 4. Clik on A2: drag mouse pointer to B5 (to highlight "A2:B5" 5. Menu 'Data -> Filter -> Autofilter' Autofilter appears as expected 6. Click into 'A1' 7. Click filter button in B2 8. Standard filter, 'Value "- empty -" <ok> al works as expected 9. Menu 'Data -> Filter -> Remove filter' All lines will eb shown as expected, data area will be highlighted. 10. Redo from 6 several times, you will get always the same result Now stop in Step 8 11. Menu "Data -> Filter -> Auto filter Autofilter will be removed as expected 12. Type word "text" into 'A1' , <enter> and click into A1 13. Redo from step 4! As soon as you click "Standard Filter" in step 8, the auto filter buttons will disappear, and the highlighted area will be 'A1:B5' Not a big problem because you can solve it by defining a data area A2:B5 (containing column headings), but that problem does not appear with 2.4.1, and unexpected, because filter works fine with empty row 1 @squenson: Please contribute information concerning your OS and Platform.

It happens on my Windows XP SP3 machine, with OOo300m5 (build: 9350) I also experienced it on Windows XP SP3 French Edition, with OOo 2.4.1. French Edition.
