Location filter issues. Set up to display for two lED ocations only but still seeing other locations. Location = PHER or location = PCDU end.
Also have inclusive filters for tests, partials and a combo for TROPQ (Test = TROPQ and Priority = STM end and exclusive for priority (<>S). No filters set up to stop on a match
Does the order of the filters on the list matter? Individual filter out by locations is not an option
I have tried everything - any suggestions?

So you have 3 inclusive filters?
I think somewhere along the line, the inclusive filters are overriding each other. The inclusive filters work a little differently, everything that matches gets filtered in, but also everything that does NOT match will get flagged to be excluded. So what happens is, whether a tests matches your next inclusive filter or not, the flag will get changed.
So say you have an inclusive filter for PHER or PCDU, and you also have another inclusive filter for TROPQ.
On a TROPQ test from say PTEL (wrong location), the first filter will do it's thing and flag it to be screened out because it's not ER or CDU. But the second filter will see it as a TROPQ and flag it back to be included.
Then comes along your filter with the list of the tests to include, and all those tests are going to be invited back to the party as well.
So the solution would be to have one bouncer who knows all the rules. This can get a little hard since you have to bottle all your inclusive rules into one mega-rule and tinker around with the logic.
Harder but not impossible. If you can email me a screenprint of your various rules, I can send you back a screenprint of one rule that combines them all.
Another thing to look at is if you can use exclusive rules for any of this. Exclusive rules are more polite, if a test doesn't match it's criteria it just leaves the flag alone.
