SETFILTER Function (Record)
Assigns a filter to a field that you specify.
Record.SETFILTER(Field, String, [Value],...)
The record that contains the field that you want to filter.
The field that you want to filter.
Type: Text or code
The filter expression. A valid expression consists of alphanumeric characters and one or more of the following operators: <, >, *, &, |, and =. You can use replacement fields (%1, %2, and so on) to insert values at run-time.
Replacement values to insert in replacement fields in the filter expression. The data type of Value must match the data type of Field.
If the function is called with a field for which a filter already exists, that filter will be removed before the new one is set. You can construct filters using the following operators:
< Less than
<= Less than or equal to
= Greater than or equal to
<> Different from
* Forms a part of value
The following table shows examples of filters.
|A..Z||A range from A to Z|
|A|G||A or G|
|F.. & *A/S||A range from F and A/S is included in the field|
|<>B||All except B|
|<>''||All not blank|
|<=200 | >500||All less than or equal to 200 or greater than 500|
This example requires that you create the following variable.
// Using a filter with replacement field. // This filter selects all accounts in the range from 100 to 200 // and No. 300. GLAccountRec.SETFILTER("No.", '%1..%2|%3', '100', '200', '300'); // Using a filter entered directly in a string. // This filter, which is entered as a string, has the same result as // the previous example. // This filter selects all accounts in the range from 100 to 200 and // and No. 300. GLAccountRec.SETFILTER("No.", '100..200|300');
