Hi -- I have a task list that I created and one of the columns is "assigned to:" My user is trying to export the list to Excel but cannot export this column as well. The menu for this column says "This Column Type Cannot Be Sorted." Does anybody have any ideas on how I can fix this so this column can also be exported? HELP!

What version of Sharepoint/Office is this occurring on? I'm not experiencing this behavior on MOSS 2007/Office 2010.

It's WSS 2003...it's hosted by an outside company. It's like the Ford Festiva of SharePoint...

I suspect it's an issue with WSS 2.0. I'll have to do some digging to see if I can find any references to this.
