The filter command works. If line "11" appears empty, it's probably due 
to the carriage return at the end of line 10 that is pushing the cursor 
down. To be sure, put this into the message box when you think you see 
11 lines:

    put the number of lines in fld "myTrainingOps"

(Note the quotes around the field name. Always quote all literals.)

Do you get 10 or 11?
