Just what the title states; the sheet in the work-book is not protected. It is possible to select a column, and then click upon the 'filter'. The expected result on performing this action is to see a combo in the first row listing all entries in each row of that sheet.
This fails silently; there is no warning/error, and yet the filter combo-box fails to appear on the first row for any column in this sheet.
Why would the filter combo-box fail to appear ?
EDIT: Follow-up detail that I failed to spot earlier. The first row simply is not visible; row count that appears to the left of the spread-sheet begins at '2' instead of '1'. I take this to mean the filter comboy probably remains invisible because that entire row is hidden. How do I make the first row visible?
