how do i select AND instead of OR in search criteria ?!!?


Recommended Posts

How can I change the OR to AND in retrospect search criteria?! I want to enter a file name AND a date on which this file has been changed. I can't find a way to change the OR, and when I use OR, the search funtion displays ALL backuped files of that date.

 

This can't be a problem for this piece of software, it must be my fault.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

cheers

First make a second criteria that will show up as "or." Then use the little blue chicklet to drag this second criteria up above the item above the "or" line. After they're stacked up you can re-order them if you wish.

 

It's pretty counter-intuitive.

It is quite subtle the first time, but make sense after you find it.

 

Click on the popup for an existing criteria. Note that it says "And..." in the popup.

 

Click on the popup at the bottom of the criteria list. Note that it says "Or..." in the popup. (Or "New..." if you have no criteria.)

 

So to make more restrictive criteria (And) you have two fairly direct ways: you can add new criteria to existing criteria using the popup; or combine existing criteria as Dave described.
