How to use Quick Filter?


 
The Quick Filter allows you to view a narrow subset of data by specifying a filter condition that could either be applied to any of the fields or to a specific field in the current report.
 
The Quick Filter tool is available just below the report grid in the right pane as shown below:
 
   
 

Apply Filter

 

To filter report data, follow these steps:

  1. Select a field from the fields drop-down list. Instead, if you want to apply the filter condition to any of the fields in the current report, select “Any Field” from the fields drop-down list.

  2. Select an operator from the operators drop-down list, beside fields drop-down.

  3. Type in a filter condition in the edit box, beside operators drop-down list.

    Note: You can use wildcard characters such as “*” and “?” in the filter condition.

    The filter condition can include regular characters as well as wildcard characters as given below:

Filter Condition

Description

Example

a*

Character starting with a

[Object Name] = a* finds object name beginning with a, for example ARKAD, Administrator, and so on.

a?

Character starting with a and maximum of two characters including a

[Object Name] = a? finds object name that has only two characters, starting with a, for example AD and so on.

a?d*

Minimum of three characters, the first character being a, middle character may be any single character and the last character being d

[Object Name] = a?d* finds object name beginning with a, that has any single character in the middle and ending with d followed by zero or more characters.
