as your omit criteria.
that will omit all records where the first two characters of a word in the field start with 14.
This would omit bays 140-149. Also I want to omit bays 17, 20, and 23. I.e. positions 17A1 etc.
Then you will need to create a separate "omit" request for each.
In manual finds, you can select "new request" from the requests menu.
In a script, you use the new record/request step and use the Omit record step to make it an omit request.
A script could loop through your list of values building the needed requests.
The only other detail to be careful of is that all omit requests must be placed after any requests that are not "omit" type requests.
I assume that the 14N1 is a location number. Like 14=Bin# N=shelf and 1= item number. I have done this compound Location number like BBB+SSS+item number. I would break down the "code" into separate fields. So the new fields are Bin(number) , Shelf(text) , and Item(number). This makes is very easy to omit a Bin or any combination you wish to find.
Then I would create a calculation or custom function to generate the compound Location number like 14N1 from the 3 separate new fields. This also facilates sorting and sub reports.
After creating the new fields, you can run a one time script to strip out the Bin from all existing compound locations and fill in new Bin field with little pain.
