    I suspect using syntax like that would appeal to only a very small technically minded population.

    That said, the general idea is still valid; to provide a way to search for 'not equal to', 'greater than', 'less than', 'contains', 'exact match', 'starts with', 'ends with', etc. both within an account or across accounts.

    It should also include a few more features:
    • ability to perform AND and OR type searches
    • ability to select which field(s) to search, that is one or more specified fields
    This is mostly available in QM2007. There should be something equivalent in the new Quicken for Mac, etc.

    Be sure to click the little grey triangle under the VOTE count in the blue banner below, so your vote will count for THIS feature and increase its visibility to the developers by seeking to have the features you need or desire end up in the latest version (it may take a moment for your vote to register).
    (If the triangle is black, your vote has already been counted.)

    Your VOTES matter!

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Allow exclusions in search.


    Please allow for exclusions in the search such as -xxx.

    Example: I use asset accounts to simulate Savings Goals. When viewing the parent account, I sometimes want to exclude all 'goal' transactions from the view, to see a more accurate depiction of what is going on inside the actual account.

    By allowing a search criteria, such as -goal (note the minus sign), the search should show all transactions that do not contain 'goal'.

    This would be most useful in other situations as well.

    Thanks.
    Craig.

    The creation of a report in QM2007 was very well designed.  QM2018 needs to have better report functions, i.e:  image

    The ability to search "all transactions" is very useful. Enhancing the searching ability to use "and", "or", "contains", "does not contain", "date range", "amount range" conditions would make it a million times more useful!

    It's time to overhaul the filter and search functionality in the register. The pull-downs for Date, Type, Status are handy but too limited. How about a full Filter + Search capability where I can filter on a specific tag, like Groceries, then search within those results using the Search capability. Allow the combination of multiple filters. Also rethink the buttons for Transactions | Spending | Income as these are redundant. I realize Reports can do a lot of this, but I have done extensive projects in Quicken and the best tool is the register, not reports. Reports are fussy and time-consuming.

    >>It's time to overhaul the filter and search functionality in the register.<< --YES THIS--it's so frustrating that a database has such limited search/filter functionality.

    I'd sure love it The "Search All Visible Columns" search box in transaction view could have improved search options using nested operators similar to Gmail or Evernote. For example I used to rename Apple charges as iTunes which just kind of stuck around. Eventually I changed it to "Apple Apps" as we use Quicken for our small business CC expenses which has some of those as well. Therefore entries are mixed for business and personal entertainment. I would love to be able to do something like ("Apple OR iTunes" after: 3/15/2022 -category:Entertainment). Another is ranges similar to dates. (e.g. Within the last 14 days). Google lets you search for numeric values in a range e.g. "Chevy 1955..1957" which provides all the values between 1955,1956, and 1957. Quicken is all about finding stuff. But having to always do so in the Reports section is tedious for one-off searches.
