  • Apply Filter allows the user to deselect the original filter applied to columns that have been added to the report.  EXAMPLE:
    • Report originally created to look for fall eco dis students coded 01-Free for 18-19
    • After adding fall eco dis code for 17-18 using Add New Column described earlier, if check mark left on (filter applied), report will apply the 18-19 fall eco dis filter of 01 to the 17-18 fall eco dis code and will only return students who are fall eco dis 01 in BOTH 18-19 and 17-18
    • Remove check (filter not applied) on the 17-18 eco dis column and the report will return all students coded fall eco dis 01 in 18-19 along with the fall eco dis reported in 17-18 regardless of what the code was that year
    • Note: The students and the year in the original detailed student list cannot be changed
