I am trying to setup an Advanced Query where i can enter the information in that i want and i can do one item. only problem is .. if i do more than one i dont have the systax right so it spits nothing. how do i add more than one item to the query.

this works ---
operatingsystem=Windows 2000 Professional

or this works
operatingsystemservicepack=Service Pack 1


but together, either using 'AND' 'OR' & () ... i still have yet to find the answer to this. if you know that would be great.

Not an answer...  I had the same problems so I just used scripts to find the answers I wanted instead of using the query.  Good thought MS, just not useful.
