Try putting in an author name that you know isn't there--Letts is the name I was checking initially because I wasn't sure when I'd previously nominated her book or if it had been fully nominated. After that, the unpopulated spreadsheet stays unpopulated, and the next searches (Atwood, Hemingway) of names I know are there return no results. I have "all" indicated for the search.

Nope, works just fine here. I did Letts, which came up blank, then Atwood, and after a moment, it showed the two books it should show.

ETA: I would comment that "Date" sorting is a bit odd. Not wrong, just not what I'd expected. The sort is by the date the book becomes eligible for nomination to NLBC. Which isn't always the date it was most recently nominated or fully nominated.

With Show=blank, I tried Letts (returns nothing) then Atwood (returns 2) then Hemingway (returns 1).

With Show=All, I tried Letts (returns nothing) then Atwood (returns 2) then Hemingway (returns 2).

So all worked as I expected, although sometimes takes a long time for the spreadsheet to finish loading properly (particularly under Firefox or IE).

Tried on Vivaldi (Chromium based), Firefox and Internet Explorer. I don't have a Mac on which to try with Safari.

I have a Mac so just tried it. It worked exactly the same as for gmw, ie 0, 2, 1 with Show = Blank, and 0, 2, 2 with Show = All.

It sounds as if your system just doesn't like the list for some reason, Catlady.

I'm using Firefox and it just won't work. Not that I've used it much--I generally forget to check--but previously I had no trouble with it. Now, it just doesn't work. It's the same thing every time--once I enter a term that has no results, nothing I enter after that yields results. And although most of the time the spreadsheet is populated when I first go to it, sometimes it's not.

Apparently the only way I can use it is to hope it's populated and then scroll through.

Clearly there is a conspiracy against me!

Well, at least you have a good excuse if you nominate a book that isn't out of quarantine yet!

I really wish I had some better options. There are some troubleshooting steps that you could take (clear cache, disable extensions, etc.) but FF just doesn't play well with Sheets for some people, it's an ongoing issue.

If nothing else, the Complete List tab should always be populated and CTRL-F (CMD-F on Mac) should let you search using a standard search dialog. If that also doesn't work for some reason, the Data tab will definitely be populated (no formulas) and, as long as I remember to leave the rows unhidden, should be searchable, if not quite as pretty.

I've added a note about that. I can change it to sort by date selected/nominated if preferred though. Any strong preferences one way or the other?

This is fine as is, it actually makes sense. It just wasn't what I expected, so I was a bit surprised. Adding a note is a useful reminder, thanks.

Thanks. I'll just have to remember to scroll rather than use search; I don't want to bother fiddling with anything else.
