QC Filter Grouping
      #562713 - 04/14/09 10:36 PM

Hi

We are using QC 9.0

In this version of QC filters are defined on a field by field basis. For example when filtering on the defects module I can create a filter as follows:

Filter: State["In Work"];Originator["bobby"];

The relationship between the filtered fields is an "AND" relationship. I wish to create a filter that has an OR relationship as follows.

Filter: State["In Work"] OR Originator["bobby"]

Am I missing something? Is there any way to group filtered fields in an OR or NOT relationship in QC9.0?

If not, have later versions of QC included this feature?

Thanks
Peter

All QC filters are defined with an AND relationship between fields criteria. QC9.2 and QC 10 have the same limitation.

However, in these newer versions you can copy the filter definition to the clipboard and paste a filter definition from the clipboard. By applying the De Morgan rules (A OR B = NOT ((NOT A) AND (NOT B)), I *think* that you can achieve what you are looking for.

Thanks,

I thought about this, the (!A) AND (!B) is possible its just the outer NOT that isn't in 9.0. When we get QC9.2 working, I'll give this a try.
