    Combination function alows me to find files linked to ALL tabbles selected for combination.
    In case of two tabbles: it’s INTERSECTION of tabble-A and tabble-B, or tabble-A ? tabble-B.

    But what about function that alows me to find files linked to ONE OF tabbles selected for combination?
    In case of two tabbles: it’s UNION of tabble-A and tabble-B, or tabble-A ? tabble-B.

    Do you plan to create this function or have you already discussed it in Tabbles forum?

    Logical OR. I bumped this thread a few months ago in the hope the Tabbles gods would look favorably upon the idea.

    I’m more than willing to re-open the topic. 🙂

    I also do agree on this 🙂
    Guys, it’s really about what has to be done first… things like that would require possibly weeks of work between logic, GUI, testing etc…

    No doubt about that, Andrea, however the original request was back in august, and my bump was october. The last word we heard from you guys (in august) was that it was initially scrapped and you might reconsider it if you got more requests.

    Consider this "more requests"…

    (no, I don’t expect this to be in the next release or anything, but other than the road map on the site, we really have no idea what is on the todo list from one release to the next and have nary a clue whether this was on it or not…)

    hello there!

    there is a google wave right now that we use to discuss and share the development to do, and you’re very welcome to join it, the only thing is that it’s in italian!!! 😮
    If only I knew how to post a google wave here… btw, guys, I can send some 30 invitations out, in case you didn’t get any yet!

    You’re right, we should make an effort to be more transparent and international: stay assured that whenever there is something worth communicating, I always post it on the thread "what we’re working on".

    the situation with this function is a bit more complicated. We’re talking about a "logical OR" and thing is that, unlike an AND, the point of the "regular expression" where you place the "OR" is important as the output may change radically… but hey, give us some more time!!! :mrgreen:

    LOL! My Italian is a bit… how shall I say…. nonexistant. Will pass on the google wave but appreciate the offer. 🙂

    Apologies for being a bit grumpy this morning, but this is another of those things I don’t want to fall through the cracks along the way. (basically it completes the Great Boolean Trinity. 😎 )

    Not to worry, you guys got alot on your plates right now, just glad to see this hit your radar.

    cheers,

    Maurizio just write on his to-do a function that sounds like "find related/similar files". The results are indeed very similar to a logical OR but you start from a file instead that from 2+ tabbles…
    (yes, we are listening 🙂 )

    Ummm, I’m not sure I understand how, or at least how it can narrow as well as a logical OR. For example; I want to find a file the could have been from May or June. The OR allows to filter out all that aren’t May or June, a similar/related would not achieve that precision by any means.

    That said, a related/similar feature does sound pretty handy in other instances, just not as an OR replacement.
