Support for specifying segment criteria spanning account combinations in Release 3.80.0

12 October 2008
Feature Description: In the past the Get Balance function only supported criteria independent to each segment e.g. seg 2 = 100 or 200 and seg 3 = 1000 or 2000. This would result in GL Wand returning all the possible combinations of those segment 2 and 3 criteria. It is now possible to specify criteria spanning the account combination using the new Get Balance syntax. This means that you can create new complex criteria for your Get Balance formula e.g. (seg 2 = 100 and seg 3 = 1000) or (seg 2 = 200 and seg 3 = 2000). With this criteria GL Wand will no longer return all the possible combinations but rather only the combinations you specify. Feature Benefit: Significantly enhanced reporting capability for customers requiring the ability to specify criteria for account combinations rather than individual segment values only. Previously this required using multiple Get Balance formulas to achieve the same result. Now you have the capability of specifying these complex criteria in a single Get Balance function.
