Dynamic filter use

Dec 17, 2009 at 9:28 PM
Each of my edges has three attributes (know, like and trust). How do I
tell the dynamic filter about them, so I can display edges based on some
combination of those three values?

Thanks.

Peter:

NodeXL automatically adds dynamic filters for numeric, date, and time columns.  What types of columns are "know," "like," and "trust"?  If they are Yes/No, True/False, or something like that, change them to 1/0 and they will show up in the list of filters.

Tony,

That's what I thought (that it automatically added the filters) and it did
in one session. However, the next time the filters diudn't show up. They
are numeric data ranging from 0 to 5. I downloaded the latest version
today.

It does add the filters for the metrics on the vertices.

Peter:

Verify that the entire column (the first cell in the column in particular) is formatted as General or Number.  Also verify that the column contains a range of numbers.  If the format isn't correct or if the column is filled with just one value, NodeXL will not show the column in the list of filters.

Tony,

Perfect. I had some blanks. Thanks.
