Is There Any Way To Display An Advanced Lookup Criteria

I'm having a hard time trying to figure out why some contacts are included in an advanced lookup. 

 

Is there any way to print out an advanced lookup criteria when the number of lines exceeds the window? 

 

I looked in Actdiag, but maybe I looked in the wrong place.

 

Many thanks,

Hi John,

 

Not that I'm aware of.


It is possible to save the query as a .QRY file. This could then be opened in any text editor program, preferably one with syntax highlighting (like Notepad++) as the containing XML could be a bit hard to read and decipher without it. Here's a quick guide to reading the XML:

 

  • Each line in the advanced lookup is represented by one of these <criteriaItem> blocks.
  • They contain more information that you see in the quiery builder, such as internal IDs and names. These can be ignored. I've highlighted the useful tags in the example below:
