i am not sure how you can handle it with FILTER = SERVER

but if you set it to APPLICATION, then you can write your own logic . for filtering. in this case in the filter field you may request the user to enter "INITIAL" to search for initial values. This text "INITIAL" you can capture in your oninputprocessing and filter the table.

other option (not exactly FILTER) is to set sort = SERVER and user can do ascending sort to see the initial value records first.

Actually i am using the dropdownlist box for the particular column filter so i need to specify the initial option in dropdownlist which will select only initial values, so i need it .
