When trying to Sort by Date (column header with cells formatted mm/dd/yyyy), the selection options are not by dates but digits. Any idea why and how to get the date to show as an option? This actually started about three or for updates ago, maybe v6.2. See image. The sort box is open with options and the cells are visible at the very bottom.
Admin Followup: Thank you. You actually hit the nail on the head. The number “223” is not a typo. Dates are being returned as numbers in the sort box, e.g.: 2017=223, as in the photo. Each year increases sequentially: 2017=223,2018=224, 2019=225, etc… All the months = 15, regardless of the year. The data is entered correctly as mm/dd/yyyy. As such, nothing happens when pushing the OK button because the cells’ data does not include “223.”
I should also mention I’ve removed the headers and reapplied, removed the headers, saved the file, reopened and reapplied the headers and I’ve exported the data as cvs, imported the data into a new file and the problem exists in all circumstances.
DISREGARD! There are 6 cells with 0223 as the year. Interestingly, the data was changed during an update or a grab and expand. Or not. I am sufficiently embarrassed. Thanks for your patience and support.
Attached is the spreadsheet with personal data removed and but with the “Date” column filled.CalcSortSampleData.ods
