Tried setting up variable search as noted in image but no results showing.
Directory path I am wanting to exclude from searching is C:PDM\Working\Doc Control
I used entire path in the value field, partial path with only Doc Control, Working\Doc Control etc. Also used * before and after but not getting results.
Tried various Comparisons and variables. Note in 2008 FileName is variable, yours was File_Name.
Any other suggestions.
If you don't have the comparison "text does not contain" this will not work. You need to able to find stuff that "does not contain" certain text.
As far as the file_name vs FileName it's just a preference by the EPDM Admin as to what variables are used and what they look like. They just translate to a column value in a database, nothing more.
This will all only work if you have the variable containing the path on the data card related to the files you are searching for. Just having the variable in EPDM does not mean that it is assigned for all files - that only happens when it is on the data card.
If the variable does not exist or it is not on the data card then you will need to use the reporting tool so that you can use an SQL query.
I would like to raise this issue back, coz it will be very useful feature.
