Actually, the "or" feature is working just fine in the amount column. Try typing -|+, and notice that all transactions are shown. When you do this, the program claims to be in restricted view; this is a bug which has been fixed.
We are not planning to support the "or" feature in the status column.
steveziel@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 08/27/06 10:25AM >>>Hello MT staff and all,
I've noticed that the Or feature, using the vertical bar, doesn't work on the amount field or the status column. Example, you cannot type -4|-5, (dash four, vertical bar, dash 5), in the amount column, to get a listing of
transactions that start with these digits. Similarly, you cannot type in the status column, r|u, (r, vertical bar, u), to get a listing of both recurring transactions and uncleared transactions. The inability to use the Or option in these two columns is logically inconsistent with the other columns.
Furthermore, there may be times where a person would want to combine some of these restricted views in one fluid key sequence to manipulate and adjust their registry. In the example above, they'd can both examine what hasn't cleared and could refresh their mind about the status and settings of recurring transactions. It does make logical sense to me to not allow restrictions of the balance column, with or without the Or option.
Using the amount column with the Or command might be even more useful if there were some way to cause the program to examine transactions in an
amount range, for instance, only show transactions that are $15.75 to $300.00 in range. The user can determine the range. If this could be implemented without major work, it might make the Or command even more
useful on the amount column.
