SQL profiler Filter

I want to make a trace on my MS SQL 2005 server to be able to see if one specific database still in used by external software.

I know how to filter on the database itself  (Filter on "Database name")
I know how to filter on the Cross database query (filter on "Text data")

how can I create a trace filter whit a "OR" between two filter.

Where [Database Name] = 'xxx' or [TextData] = 'xxx'


Thanks,

If you only want to know if a database is in use why don't you capture only "Audit Login" event?

You have information about the user, host and application in the Audit Login event. So I think you won't need nothing else.

I don't want to see if application connect to the server but if query goes in a specific DB.  Audit Login don't give any info about database connection and don't give me any info about cross database query.
