    By default AND is selected. Click it to change to OR.

NOTE: If you want to apply only one filter criterion, you don't need to select a Boolean operator.

  1. Click plus_grey to add a condition. A row of boxes will appear.

  2. Select an field from the drop-down list, displaying all data fields from the model.

  3. Select a relational operator from the following options: Is equal to, Is not equal to, Is less than, Is less than or equal to, Is greater than or equal to, Is greater than.

  4. Enter a value in the box.

  5. To add another condition of the same level, click plus_grey in the parent level and repeat steps 3-5.

  6. To add a nested condition, click plus_grey in the current level and repeat steps 1, 3-5.

  7. To apply the dynamic filter, click Apply.

NOTE: To remove a condition, click close_grey.
