Description wmuys 2005-05-09 14:30:14 UTC
When "view zero values" is switched off, automatic filtering on "non-empty
cells" still shows the cells with zero values. With "view zero values" in the
options switched off, these cells appear empty to the user.

IMHO it would make more sense to filter out these "empty" cells as well. (This
is also what Excel does).

not a bug but an enhancement request.

Cells containing a zero aren't 'empty', so no bug.
