This option enables you to define the conditions which you can use for filtering macros and redlining that you add to an Enhanced SmartLoop report.  In the Smart Instrumentation database, a filter is associated with a specific item, so that you cannot use the same filter for another item.  If necessary, you can define several filters for the same item.

  1. In the Domain Explorer, highlight and right-click the required loop.

  2. On the shortcut menu, click Actions > Define Filter for Item.

  3. From the Filter for list, select an item.

  4. From the Filter list, select a filter.

     To create a new filter, click beside the Filter list to open the Item Filters dialog box, where you can define a set of filters for the selected item   For details, see Create Filters for Items.

  5. Click Edit to enable access to the command buttons on the right.

     When clicked, the Edit button changes to Apply.

  6. Click Add to append a new data row.

  7. From the Property column, select one of the item properties.

    If the property that you are looking for does not appear in the list, select Display browser list, and in the Browser list that appears in the data window, select another browser.

  8. To define an appropriate conditional expression for the filter, click the Operator data field and select a suitable operator to determine how the selected field will relate to the expression in the Value field.

  9. In the Value field, do one of the following:

    • Select a value from the list of values registered in Smart Instrumentation for the selected field.

    • Type a text field value.

  10. Depending on whether you want to add another filtering condition, in the Logic data field, do one of the following:

    • Leave the Logic field empty if you have defined only one filtering condition.

    • Click the Logic field and select either And or Or if you have defined several filter conditions.  Selecting And includes the next expression in the filtering condition.  Selecting Or accepts either the previous or the next expression in the filtering condition.

  11. Click Verify to check the validity of the current filtering condition.
