[SOLVED] NOT EQUAL (!=) and OR in Search

How do you code a "not equal" condition in a search filter?

Help says any Python expression is accepted, but I can't get != to work;
{field}!={value}
{field}:!={value}
{field}:!{value}

All return no results.

Also, how do you code an OR? .{val}.{val} works for an itemized list field as an AND, but how would I code an OR?

And, how do you code an AND or an OR where the blank value is also OK?

Thanks!

I think you missed the obvious

You can use the words 'and', 'not' and 'or' (without the quotes) and use brackets for grouping.

LOL I thought of that about 45 minutes after posting the thread while driving to Phoenix. I hate when that happens!

Thanks
