Combining Drawing Query Conditions
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

You can combine query conditions when creating a query to retrieve drawing objects.

Example: Combine a property condition with a location condition to find all utility poles within 100 meters of a road.

When you combine conditions, use Or to specify the union of the conditions, use And to specify the intersection of the condition, use Not to exclude specific objects from the query.

You can use Not by itself to retrieve all except a specific set of objects. For example, the query definition, Not Property: Layer = Furniture retrieves all objects except those on the Furniture layer.

If you use more than two or three conditions, it is a good idea to group the conditions. Conditions inside the group are evaluated first.

If conditions are not grouped, Not conditions are evaluated first, then And, and last Or.
