Sharepoint List Drop Down filter issue
Posted on 2014-10-28
I have a Sharepoint 2007 server and we currently have a CRM List that contains customer names, numbers, address, information, attachments, etc...
When you click on the CRM LIST on the left hand side of Sharepoint it brings it up in the All Items View. There is nothing special to this view, its just the standard.
Now above we have our normal NEW - ACTIONS - SETTINGS drop downs and below that is the TITLE COLUMN for the list.
Each Title in every Column in the list has a Name (ie. Address, Customer name, Phone number, etc... )
When you click on that top Column Name it opens a menu showing you can sort by Acsending and Decsending also below that it shows the Data in that Column (ie. customer name = shows all of our customers) and you can click on a customer your looking for and fliter it to that Customer Name.
However that is no longer an option, when you click on the Column Title it just shows Acsending and Decsending and Show Filter Choices. It no longer shows the Data within that column.
But if I click on the Phone number column it does show the data in that column and I can pick which number I want and filter it like that.
So why is it just affecting certain columns?
