Usage of Filter function

Dear Sirs,

I have a question about the filter function, I can not seem to find any documentation about it in the help pages. The closes thing about filters is what is found under the BI section in the help pages.

Can anyone point me to such a documentation or explain the prosses, which explains the filter function, and the different between the filters: "filter samples", "filter sample?", "filter sam", "filter and sample", "filter or sample".

My requirement is to remove duplicates when displaying information from BABI_SALESORDER_GETLIST (ECC), as I only want to show one entry for each Sales order document.

Best regards,

Jørgen

Hi Jørgen,

Filter opertion does the following function :

Applies a specific filter to a selected field or fields. For example, you may wish to filter a list of employee names to display only those surnames that begin with a, b, c or d. In this case, your filter could be: *.

Even you can use Distinct operator if you want :

Omits records that contain duplicate data in the selected fields. For example, if Ben Smith, John Smith and Ralph Smith are listed in a New Customers table, and the Surname field is defined as Distinct, Ben Smith will be taken as the only record of the three
