    The item type in the Filter for box determines the properties that are available in step 6.

  6. In the Definition area, select either Match all or Match any.

    Match all means that only those items matching ALL of the filtering criteria pass through the filter.
    Match any means that items matching any one or more of the filtering criteria pass.

  7. In the Edit section, select the filter property, operator, and corresponding value for the first filter criterion.

    SHARED Tip If you cannot find the desired property for the item type, add it using the Data Dictionary Manager. Consult the Defining Item Type Properties section in the Data Dictionary Manager Help.

  • If you select a date-formatted property, you can specify a date for that property. Select the ellipsis PPM All Outputs Graphic near Value in the Edit group, and select a date on the calendar.

  • When using the <, <>, and > operators in a filter item, null values are not included in the filtered results. To include null values, the operator = and the value Null have to be added to the Filter Definition. For example, if all the pipe runs that do not have an Item Tag value equal to 01-100 are to be filtered, then the filter definition is set to Match any and the following criteria used in the Filter Definition:
    Item Tag <>01-100
    Item Tag = Null.
