This is undoubtedly a serious bug... and nobody has detected this
before? How strange.


With older versions of LO and with OpenOffice you can define named
ranges which remember their sort orders, filter arguments and options,
so called database ranges. Somewhere in the LO development process the
feature got lost. You can still select a cell range, call
menu:Data>Define... and specify that this should be the list named
"List" and that it has no column labels on top. But this setting has no
effect. As soon as you push any of the sort buttons or call
menu:Data>Sort, the automatic detection identifies a first row of text
values as column labels.

This is how the auto-sort buttons [A-Z] and [Z-A] work:

And like always: Even the most simple list is way easier to handle in a
dBase connected database. Lists saved in a database integreate almost
seamlessly in spreadsheets if you still find some reason why you want to
process your text data in an arithmetic calculator.

Hope this helps a litte. As a work-around I would simply add column
labels on top of every list.

Cheers, Andreas
