Format a filtered result set

I have attached a snip for review. I apply a filter to my column and when I get results they look like the attached file. I want to keep my results but would like them listed as A1, A2, A3 not as the results show A129, A153, A169. If I remove the filter - obviously my result set that I need is not there.
I am sending to someone and would rather it look clean, Thanks in advance and included is the attachment
Looks like this
                                 A                     B
1                            client                Group
129                        Jim                     A
153                       Bob                     B
169                        John                   C
So this is how the filtered portion looks
Should be
                                 A                     B
1                            client                Group
2                             Jim                     A
3                            Bob                     B
4                           John                   C

No attachment found. Better attach a sample excel file instead of snip.

There may be a way to do this without copy/pasting the records into a new sheet before sending out.  The filtered numbering makes sense as the 1, 129, 153... was the row that the data was in before filtering.

The row numbers would not change in the filtered range. That is how excel works.


You might like to consider workarounds eg

   -   copying the filtered data to another sheet and then sending out

   -   adding a column for row numbers

The attachment is a Word document, can you upload an Excel file instead?

One way of creating an extract from data based on criteria, eg a filter, is to use Advanced Filter.

Advanced Filter doesn't use the dropdown selections like Auto Filter. Instead you create a separate table of criteria with specific entries or Wild Card or comparison style entries. A sample file would make it much easier to demonstrate.
