Excel 2003 isn't filtering

I have an ODBC query going into Excel 2003. When I go to Data, Filter, Auto Filter, i then go to any of the columns to sort Ascending. When I do this, it sorts a lot of data Ascending, but then there are random blank cells, then more data below...that should have been part of the filter. No matter what column i filter, this happens. Is there a property setting i'm missing? We have never had this issue before.

Before applying Data|Filter, actually select all the columns first, then apply Data|Filter.

When you don't do that, sometimes the data in the autofiltering stops at the first blank row...

It looks like that is working for now. We have tried that before but I was thinking it still didn't work after that. But for now, it's holding. Thanks.
