What version of FileMaker are you using? If I recollect correctly, there was one post that reported version 12.0v4 corrected this.

I've posted about this before but we still don't seem to have resolution.
It seems that we we use the not equal symbol (≠) that the portal will display no records at all. Is this a bug? If it is a bug it seems a pretty major oversight on FMI's part.
We used a work around, creating a second field that calculates a boolean to test for the records we want filtered out of the portal. This method works fine but I do wonder if FMI sees this as a bug.
