Removes rows based on number, date and text values in selected columns.






Click the '+' button to add a new filter criteria.

Click the 'x' button to delete the selected filter criteria.

Select Keep if you want to keep matching rows and Remove to remove matching rows.

Select Matching all to match on all criteria (e.g. criteria 1 and criteria 2). Select Matching any to require a match on one or more criteria (e.g. criteria 1 or criteria 2).

Set Column to the column you wish to match.

Set Op. to the comparison operator.

Set Value to the value you wish to compare.

Check disable filtering to turn off filtering. If sampling is disabled, the transform does nothing.



A filter row is ignored if the Value column is empty , except when Op. is Equal to, Not equal to, Matches regex or Doesn't match regex.

Number, date and text values are treated differently for Equal to, Greater than, Less than, Greater than equal, Less than equal and Not equal to operations. Any values that can be converted to a number will be treated as a number. Any values that match the supported date formats in Preferences will be treated as a date.

All values are treated as text for Contains, Starts with, Ends with, Matches regex, Is not, Doesn't start with, Doesn't end with and Doesn't match regex operations.

Comparisons of text are case and whitespace sensitive. You can use Case to change the case, Whitespace to remove whitespace before filtering and Replace to get of other unwanted characters (e.g. whitespace inside the text).

See here for more details on Regular expressions (regex).
