Yeah, me too. I would hit a wall and end up using sql-filter, or the filter param on cgi, etc. However, I didn't know it worked with [scratch]. I looked a little bit in the docs, but I think I assumed that if it worked on [scratch] I would have remembered.
That was actually my first choice, but you know what they say, assumptions make a dummy of me and mmm look pancakes...
