Advanced Filter box in Excel keeps asking for List range

Hello,

When using Advanced Filtering in Excel (2007), what would cause the List range field in the Advanced Filter box to come up empty each time after a previous filter?  

I've noticed that sometimes when it comes up, it is populated with the same range I defined previously (which is what I want).  However, at other times, it is empty.  Thus, I am trying to understand what determines each result so as to eliminate the one I don't want.

BTW, the Criteria range field is always constant so the problems lies only with the List range.

Thanks

I think it depends on whether the active cell at the time is in your dataset.
