Copies the filter that has been set for one field and applies it to another field.

Record.COPYFILTER(FromField, ToRecord.ToField)



Type: RecordThe record from which to copy the filter.

Type: FieldThe field from which the filter will be copied.

Type: Record.FieldThe record and field to which you want to apply the copied filter.


The FromField and ToField parameters must be of the same data type, but they do not have to belong to the same table.


This example requires that you create a Record variable for the Customer table named Customer and an Integer variable named Count.

  Copy Code
Customer.SETFILTER("No.", '<1000'); 
Customer.COPYFILTER("No.", Vendor."No."); 
Count := Vendor.COUNT;

The filter set for Customer."No." is copied and applied to Vendor."No.". This affects the result of the COUNT Function (Record), which counts how many vendors have a number less than 1000.
