Search pulls up files that are in "Not equals"

Curious....search error or a bug? I have had it happen here and there with different formats.

 

(I don't wish to see this file format show up in search, yet here it is in my search anyway.)

 

Anyone seen this? Figured out a work around if it isn't a bug?

Hi

 

The problem is that in the media type it's (not WAV or not MP3) and here the condition "or" doesn't work. It returns always true as you can see from the truth table below.

 

WAV: FALSE or TRUE = TRUE

MP3: TRUE or FALSE = TRUE

XYZ: TRUE or TRUE = TRUE

 

Your statement would be correct, if the intention would be return only WAV and MP3 items, but the purpose is the return all except WAV and MP3.

Yep, that AND/OR can throw curveballs. Thank you for the assist.

 

Uwe...to get the Not Equals, I go to tags, type in the word I am not wanting to search for, look thru the choices Daminion gives back, and hold the ALT key down while double clicking on any choices I do not want to see in searches.

I am on build 1725.
