    Filter Help

    lklinstra _

      I need to do a complex filter and I don't have much experience using it in version 8.  I have a memo field, I redefine it with Textline (I define 7 lines).  I define the data in each of the seven lines with a calculated field using substring.  So, in these 7 lines, I have a field in each I'll call Batch.  I want to filter out anything that either has a value of 989 in a record and spaces in all others, or all the values are 989.  I want to capture an item if one of the values is 989, but at least one other value is NOT 989.  What would that look like?

          Hello lklinstra,

           

          You might get halfway using Strip(Memo;" ")="989" which would give you a logical test for entries which were just one entry of "989" and the rest full of spaces.

           

          Strip(Memo;" 89") would reveal entries with other data, but wouldn't pick up entries with "898" for example...
