My filtering based on the previous question has changed and for some reason I am unable to figure out how to tweak this formula to make the filter do what I need.

Basically, I need to now filter out any employee ID that starts with 804 or contains 804. I also need to filter out any Emp Ids that have an 'S' as the last character in the string.. e.g. 12S, 134S, 2S. Based on my information this part of the filter can basically filter out any ID that contains an 'S'.

Thanks a bunch for the help.. I thought the formula I had changed would work fine for this..  (Here is what I tried;)

Right({BAQReportResult.EmpBasic.EmpID},1) <> 'S'
or
{BAQReportResult.EmpBasic.EmpID} <> '*804*'


I tried a few other variations but nothing seems to be working..
