RE: Saved Searches Of Transactions Referencing Items
I have to do some searches of a couple of different types of transactions, excluding with certain permutations of items.
The first one I have is a search of Orders excluding those which have any of a particular list of items.
Note that I don’t want to just exclude that item – I want to exclude the entire Order if any of its items are in the ‘exclude’ list.
The ‘exclude’ list is quite long, so I can’t use the ‘Item On Any Line’ search field. I’d have used a formula but the ‘Item On Any Line’ field isn’t available in a formula.
So how can I exclude Orders based on whether or not they have any of a list of particular items?
The second one I have is a search of Quotes excluding those which have only items on a particular list of items.
. So if the Quote has ten items and nine of them are on the list, then it should be included. But if all ten are on the list, it should be excluded. But how do you say “all items = x”?
I would think I’d need to somehow enumerate all the items in each quote, checking for any of the items, but I’ve no idea how to do that.
Thanks in advance
I’m not certain this will work for you but have you come across NS_CONCAT() formula function?
In a grouped saved search it joins all the values in the rows together with a comma.
If you can put together a formula to distinguish between rows you want and those you don’t then you can use this in the Summary Criteria tab to filter.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
