When you apply the advanced filter to a selected view, Alloy Navigator Express refers to the database and retrieves data according to the specified filter criteria.
You can create and apply the advanced filters as follows:
Design the filter by using the specially provided graphical filter builder, then apply the filter.
Directly specify the SQL WHERE clause for filtering the data, then apply the filter (resequires some knowledge of SQL).
To use the configured filter criteria more than once, you can save the view with the applied filter (for details, see Working with views).
