Sorting function Excel

Copper Contributor


Does anyone know why the sorting function is not working? It seems to be blocked for some reason.

Here's a screenshot of a simple file were I can't sort by creation date from A-Z.


When I try to sort, a message pops up which I've highlighted in yellow.




I tried everything but now I am clueless. Hope anyone is able to advise what I should do

@Peter_Roel opened your file and could sort without a problem. See picture.

What Excel version are you on? Which platform?

@Riny_van_Eekelen Platform 365, version 2008 (Build 13127.21216)




@Peter_Roel Sorry. Can't replicate your problem. Attaching the file I sorted.


Maybe first you should update your office and start a repair.
Your Version is not up to date.
