Select Elements dialog box

You use the Select Elements dialog box to choose from a list of attribute elements. (Attribute elements are the values of attributes.)

For example, if you are creating a custom group, you can use the Select Elements dialog box to locate and select the attribute elements to include in a filtering condition, allowing you determine which data is included in a custom group element.

To search for a particular element, type a search value in the search field. Type the first few letters of the element name and search results will be displayed. To return only items that match the upper and lower-case string you typed in the search field, select the Case Sensitive check box.  

You can search for objects:

Beginning with specific letters, by typing those letters followed by an asterisk (*). For example, to find regions beginning with south, type south* in the Search for field and click the filter button. South, Southeast, and Southwest are displayed.
Ending with specific letters, by typing an asterisk (*) and those letters. For example, to find regions ending with west, type *west in the Search for field and click the filter button. Northwest and Southwest are displayed.
With a specific name, by typing the name in quotes (" "). For example, to find the South region, type "South" in the Search for field and click the filter button. South is displayed, but not Southeast or Southwest.
Beginning with specific letters and ending with specific letters, by typing the first letters, then an asterisk (*), then the last letters. For example, to find regions beginning with S and ending with th, type s*th in the Search for field and click the filter button. South is displayed.
Containing specific letters, by typing the characters separated by the percent sign (%). For example, to find regions that contain both S and th, type s%th in the Search for field and click the filter button. South, Southeast, and Southwest are displayed.
Based on an attribute form, by typing the name of the attribute form in brackets [] followed by a colon and the value to search for. For example, to find customers with the first name Maxwell, type [First Name]:Maxwell in the Search for field and click the filter button. Maxwell Perez is displayed, but not Delores Maxwell.

Select the elements to use, then click OK.
