We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or "OP 19". OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

Overview

Throughout OP you have the ability to filter the data that you see in reports. This is especially useful when creating large reports such as the Demographic Analysis and Recall or Billing Transaction Analysis reports.

  1. Hover over the column header that you would like to filter until a small Filter button appears.
