Symptom

DataWindow ‘like’ filter does not work if it is not placed last in the list of filters or within parenthesis. For example, the below script returns -1, which means the ‘like’ filter does not work.

dw_1.setfilter('  facility_name like "com%" and facility_id > 200 ')

Resolution

This is old PB bug and can be resolved with either resolution of the below:

1. Put the ‘like’ filter in a parenthesis (recommended) like the below script:

dw_1.setfilter('  (facility_name like "com%" ) and facility_id > 200 ')

2. Place the like’ filter last in the list of filters like the below script:

dw_1.setfilter('   facility_id > 200 and facility_name like "com%"  ')
