Restrict Filter - Matching Lines (grep) - Extract data?

Post by MelSeven » Wed Feb 10, 2016 8:53 am


I use a lot of Restrict to Matching Lines (grep) filters like this one (in a text file with fixed position fields):


Is it possible with these filters to extract / link to a CSV file, text file or similar instead of having a list a items in the filter? Sometimes I want this data to change and currently I have to update this in the Matching Lines filter, which is a bit tedious and time-consuming.

Hi John,

Not with that filter, but you can with Filters\Restrict\Restrict to lines matching pattern list
