Excel Filter Activity does not work as documented. Is it me, my install, or a bug?

Either I don’t understand how filters work for Excel, my installation is broken, or there is a bug in UiPath. Attached please find a sample file. Notebook scratch pad contains a list of states and a value to filter by in O1. When script runs all states are filtered out. See screen shots and file.

There seems to be “no break space”(U+00A0) at beginning of all data in ColumnA.

So, for now, can you try to copy data in column A to O1, then run?

Perhaps you should remove all “no break space” in ColumnA in advance.
