There are two settings in the Attribute Filter procedure used to filter particular attributes.

The exclude filter defines hidden attributes, for example technical stuff like timestamps or attributes used for audit trails. Primary and foreign keys ending in 'ID' or 'OID' (case sensitive!) are suppressed programatically. Example:
'*isDeleted,*Purge*' will suppress CustIsDeleted, InvIsDeleted ... InvLineToPurge, SalesOrderPurgedOn ... but not InvLineIsDeletedByMistake.

The include filter defines attributes which are used to describe parent levels when the report is started from the child level. Example:
'*Name*,*Number*' will print out the upper level attributes CustNumber, CustName and SalOrdOrderNumber from the SalesOrders-SDO (when the report was launched from the SalesOrderLines-SDO's level), but will not show CustCreditLimit or CustSalesRep, even when these attributes are available in the SalesOrders-SDO.
Note: the exclude filter overrules the include filter.

Filters are not case sensitive. They apply to all tables in all databases. The maximum length of a filter is 30,000 bytes. Edit the filters in config-DataPump.i.
