  • 1. Dynamics AXUSING WILD CARDS IN DYNAMIX AX 2012FILTERS Sometimes you don’t want to see all of your data, so you want to be able to filter. Simple filtering and searching is good for ad-hoc querying, but you can do so much more if you use some of the filter wildcards. In this worked example we will show how you can refine your selections to just the information that you want through these special filter functions. © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 2. Simple FilteringThe first way to filter is through the filter box at theheader of most forms. This works well, but does havesome limitations in that we cannot use all of thewildcarding functionality that we may want to use whenwe create the filter, © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 3. Advanced FilteringThe filtering that is on the grids themselves has extendedwildcarding features, and allows you to refine your filtersmuch more effectively. © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 4. * Any CharacterMatchThe “*” wildcard allows you to filter based on zero tomany character(s) that match.e.g. 12* © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 5. ? – Must HaveCharacterThe “?” wildcard specifies that there must be a character.With this you can specify a filter that only returns resultsthat are a certain length.e.g. 12?? © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 6. .. RangeThe “..” wildcard allows you to specify a range of results.e.g. 1200..1205 © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 7. ! NotThe “!” operator allows you to exclude anything thatmatches the expression.e.g. !?????? © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 8. >/< Greater/LessthanThe “>” and “<“ wildcards allow you to filter based onlogical comparison.e.g. >2000 © 2013. All rights reserved.
  • 9. , OrThe “,” wildcard is shorthand for an OR comparison. Youcan chain multiple filter criteria together to create a moreelaborate expression. © 2013. All rights reserved.
