Filter Condition Wildcards

A wildcard is one or more characters used to simplify the process of setting up filter conditons. You use wildcards to substitute characters or combinations of characters in object properties, such as names or descriptions. For example, instead of setting up five filter conditions for values with names beginning with a, b, c, d, or e, you can set up one single filter condition for values with a name beginning with any of the characters in the range [a-e].
