Filters allow you to filter your report on any existing column or statistic. Filter expressions must be a conditional comparison and can be as simple as a single stat or multiple stat comparisons. Report Filters will be saved with the report, when a report filter is saved then the Global Filters found using the standard "More Filters..." button will not function within the report. When there are no Report Filters enabled, any Global Filters you have selected will remain in effect.
From this window you have two options:
Add New Simple Filters
You can add basic filters here. For more information on building these filters, please consult the PT4 Filters Tutorial. This is the recommended option for filtering reports, and should be used in the vast majority of all situations.
Add New Expression Filters
For more complex filters, you should use this option. From here you can insert statistics, columns, and operators to create filters.
If the report should be filtered for the active player, then the Filter on Active Player option should be checked. If the report should run for all players, then this option should be unchecked.
Additionally PokerTracker 4 provides two other filtering options for advanced users who wish to add their own filter expressions using the actual stat columns in the database. This advanced feature exists to augment custom stat creation, it requires extensive knowledge of the PokerTracker 4 database schema, support for custom filter expression creation is outside of the scope of this tutorial.
To assist in creating an expression, you can click the Insert link which will open a window that contains a list of all of the available columns and statistics that can be used to filter the report on. Columns are used to map database fields for easy access when calculating stats.
After you have built the filter expression, make sure to validate it to confirm that it is valid. This can be done by clicking the Validate link. If the expression is not valid, the filter cannot be saved.
Once you are finished, click Save to save your changes.
