Why cant I filter a repeating table using a Sharepoint list in infopath 2007?

I'm using infopath 2007 and sharepoitn 2007 (no infopath form services). The compatibility mode in infopath is NOT set to browser-enabled.

When I create a repeating table and connect it to receive data from a sharepoint 2007 custom list, the option to filter that data (on the display tab in the table properties area) disappears...  so essentially it will only return ALL records from the list.

That is not really desirable... I want to filter it based on the value of another control in the form, which seems to be what infopath is designed to help with.

What am I doing wrong? :(
