General Help

If more than one record is returned, a summary screen will be displayed with data selected. Pressing the "Details" button on that screen will display details for each row. Depending on the criteria used, it could take as much as 2 minutes to return the results of the query. For best results, start with the fewest values and broadest criteria (for instance "contains" instead of "equals").
Hints to get results
Criteria values restrict the results to match all the values entered.
All data is returned when no criteria values are used.
If there are too many results, enter more criteria.
If there are not enough results use only one criteria value, use "contains" with a minimum number of characters or use broad ranges until results are returned.
Spelling, punctuation, and spaces can be inconsistant in any text such as names, addresses, serial numbers, etc.

One and only one may be chosen per data item and take effect if any entries are made into the "value(s)" column. Comparisons are not case sensitive and the data item need not be selected for display to be used as criteria. The selections are:
Equal (default)
Exactly matches the specified value. Multiple values, separated by a comma, may be entered.
Not Equal
Does not match the specified value. One and only value may be entered.
Equal or Less
Matches the specified value and any values less than that entered. One and only value may be entered.
Equal or More
Matches the specified value and any values more than that entered. One and only value may be entered.
Equal to or greater than and equal to or less than the specified values (two are required).
Starts With

Matches all items that contain this value. One and only value may be entered.

Dates can be entered in "YYYY-MM-DD" format.

Can be drop down list boxes or entered values.
Multiple values can be selected in drop down list boxes using the "control" or "shift" keys.
Values in drop down list boxes can be de-selected by click on the value while pressing the "control" key.
If more than one value is entered, separated them with a comma (stuff,more stuff).
