Does excel 97 have a limitation when it comes to its auto filter feature? I have a column with 1171 cells and growing and I apply the auto filter, not all of the 1171
cells appear in the drop down list for filtering. The list stops at 1005.

Thanks!
Catherine

An AutoFilter's drop down list consists of no more that 1000 unique entries.

Yep. You can see this for yourself by entering "Field1" into cell A1, a 1 in A2, and choose the Edit | Fill | Series... menu command and create a Series in Columns with a Stop value of 1001. Apply an AutoFilter to column A and take a peek at the drop down list.
