Filter disappears in a column with date values in Excel 2016 for Mac

Last updated: October 13, 2017


When trying to filter a column that contains only date values, the filter list is empty, so you are not able to set the filter. This issue affects Excel 2016 for Mac version 15.38 and 15.39.


We are actively working on a fix for this issue. As a workaround, you may be able to filter your data as needed using the filter options above the filter values list.
