Text filter submenu is not appearing under AutoFilter

I have a column with employee ID numbers. Some are all numeric. Some begin with 'V.' I selected the entire column and changed the format to 'Text' format. When click the AutoFilter drop down list, I see an option for numeric filter but not for Text Filter. Why isn't the Text Filter option showing?

Changing the format of a cell does not change the the value it holds. If you need to change the entire column to text values, you can use Text to columns on the data tab & then select "Text" on page 3 of the wizard
