I have an MS Excel 2013 sheet that was working and now doesn't I can't seem to find the error. In the "Criteria Area" you enter search terms to sort the list below. I have submitted sample search terms in the cells for you.

You now click in cell "A9" to activate the table. Now go to the "DATA" tab and select "Avanced" in the "Sort & Filter" group.

The advanced Filter should come up with:

List range: $A$8:$J$21
Criteria range: $A$2:$J$3
Copy to: $A$26:$J$26

In the Advanced Filter dialog box select the radio button: "Copy to another location"

Then you click "OK"

You should see sorted returns in the fields below in the "Extract Area".

This was working but now it won't I can't seem to find an error as to why.

Your attachment should have an xlsx extension.

Your attachment does not have a "DATA" tab. Did you attach the right file?

Your problem mentions a "DATA" tab, but there is no "DATA" tab on your attachment.

When you open the excel sheet the "data" tab is at the top of the sheet to the left center

Sorry for my confusion. You did say "data tab" but I thought you meant a "data sheet."

I see the same problem in Office 2010. The only way I could get it to work was to select only the criteria columns that contain data. For my test I entered "Midwest" in cell E3. So instead of using A2:J3 as my criteria, I used E2:E3, and all 4 "Midwest" lines were copied.
