Often when exporting data from an extraction process, only certain information is needed. It can be a time-consuming and complex process to export all the extracted data and then delete the unwanted data from the destination.
ReportMiner solves this problem in a quick and easy way with its rule-based filtering for export feature. All you need to do is create your export setting and then type in your rule-based filter in the expression window as shown shown in the figure below, then verify the rule by clicking on the compile button. In this case, the user only wanted to export data for sofas, so the expression is ITEM = SOFA.
ReportMiner will export only the records that meet the criteria of your expression. In this case, two records that pertain to sofas were exported.
