Filtering Columns in Workbench 4

Version 11


You can use the Filter transform to apply filters to a selected column. You can choose to have Workbench return matches or non-matches for the specified filter query. You can also include or exclude blank cells in your filtered data. 

You can use regular expressions in building filter queries, just as you can when using the Search & Replace filter. Currently no Regular Expression Builder is available for helping you build filters as it is with Search & Replace; however, you can use all of the same constructions when building filter queries. For more information about the Search & Replace Regular Expression Builder, see Replacing a Column Value in Workbench 4
