Using Filter Expressions

Some of the methods in the .NET connector allow you to use filter expressions when fetching records from a recordset. The syntax you can use to build filter expressions is:


You can use expressions on both the left and right sides of the condition statement. Be sure to enclose data in quotation marks.

Condition Expressions

AND condition_expression AND condition_expression
OR condition_expression OR condition_expression
NOT NOT condition_expression
Equal to value_expression = value_expression
Equal to (case insensitive) value_expression =* value_expression
Not equal to value_expression <> value_expression
Less than value_expression < value_expression
Greater than value_expression > value_expression
Less than or equal to value_expression <= value_expression
Greater than or equal to value_expression >= value_expression ( ) (multiple condition_expressions)

Value Expressions

A value expression can take any of the following:

Filter Expression Examples

This example returns all records in the patients recordset that are not "Smith":

patients.lastname  <> "Smith" 

This example returns the exact same set of records as the preceding example:

NOT (patients.lastname = "Smith")

This example returns all records in the SearchResults recordset with the last name "Smith" and first name "Steven":

(SearchResults.LastName = "Smith") and (SearchResults.FirstName =* "Steven")

This example returns all fields in the AccountNumbers recordset greater than or equal to 10000 and less than or equal to 20000:

(AccountNumbers.Accounts >= 10000) and (AccountNumbers.Accounts <= 20000)
