Having a difficult time getting $$Event_Filter to work. My event table has id_event_type. I have a global field that filters an event list by this value. Any help incorporating $$Event_Filter?

 

I even tried hard-coding the $$Event_Filter by setting it to "id_event_type = "1F7CED2C-D153-45FC-AFD5-DA796FAF4F28" and still just ?s.

 

Here is what I see in the data viewer:

SELECT
 "event_description",
 "EzCal_Text_Color",
 '',
 "start_time",
 "end_time"
 FROM
 "event"
 WHERE
 ( ( NUMVAL ( "start_date" ) = [[DATE]] )
 OR ( ( NUMVAL ( "start_date" ) < [[DATE]] ) AND ( NUMVAL ( "thru_date" ) >= [[DATE]] ) )
 )
  AND ( id_event_type = "1F7CED2C-D153-45FC-AFD5-DA796FAF4F28" )

Yeah! Boy, I thought I have tried that. Now, onto the fact that I do not want to hard-code the id_event_type. How would I do that, Tim?


"id_event_type = " & "'" & ( GetField ( "@SYS::EVENT_TYPE_FILTER ") ) & "'"

 

Thanks, Tim! You're inspiring me.

that works well, too! Of course, I needed to also test for an empty FILTER, so 

 

Case ( IsEmpty (@SYS::EVENT_TYPE_FILTER ) ; "" ;"( id_event_type = '" & GetField ( "@SYS::EVENT_TYPE_FILTER ") & "' )" )

 

is the final calc.
