    I am attempting to sort 34,000 rows in descending order in column 'O'. Entered are Sort by 'Number of Lines Ordered', descending, header row. When I hit enter I get error message "The formula entered contains an error. ....". But there is no formula in the column. The column only contains numeric values.

    Any ideas?

    Any way you can upload a workbook that has the error? I think it might make it a little easier to sort this one out...

    Thanks, I just ran out of time here on the East coast. I'm facing a 4 hour drive tonight, so I'll get back to this next week.
    Thank you for your offer to help. I am seriously confused by the problems I am having with this book.
    ps Nanaimo is a lovely place to live!
