How Would I Write This Filter?

Need to edit

In addition to the main task folder which I use for work I have 3 other task folders:

Personal Tasks

Personal Features

Personal Someday

I want to create to-do list views so that the items in the features and someday folder do not show up in my to-do list. Strangely, if I implement as shown in attachment 2.jpg below, they don't show up, but neither does personal tasks, which I want to show up! On the other hand attachment 1.jpg, which I would think should work, all folders still show up.

Are you sure you have the images # right? The one with 2 in folder conditions should fail, the one with one should work. Or, the doesn't contain is messing with my logic. :)

2 in folders fail because when you use a field twice, it or's the conditions. if it doesn't contain a it's going to contain b and if it doesn't contain b, it will contain a. :) Try using In folder doesn't contain name1 OR name2 or use the query builder.

Keep in mind my numbers above are based on the file names, not the names the order they appear on the screen. I was able to get it to work by including the words I wanted to filter all in one statement.

Ah... I never noticed the filenames. DUH! I'm blind as a bat tonight. :) Glad you got it working.
