In Emsi products, tables have “filter” capabilities. A filter is a set of one or more criteria, used to display only specific rows of data in a table. For example, a criterion might be “Total 2007 Jobs greater than or equal to 350”, where the column is “Total 2007 Jobs”, the comparison method is “greater than or equal to”, and the value is “350”. When applied as a filter, this criterion will show a table with only those rows whose “Total 2007 Jobs” field is greater than or equal to 350. Various criteria in a filter can be combined with AND and OR operators.
