First of all, when you write "it didn't work", you should really write
exactly why it didn't work and what you got instead of the expected
result. E.g. did nothing happen, did you get an error message --if you
got an error message, then what was the exact text of the error
message--, or did the script run and was the result different from what
The follow should "work", i.e. it should remove all lines except those
containing the string "d14":
filter fld "Column3" with "*d14*
I'm assuming that this script is in a button and that you click on the
button to run the script.
If this doesn't help, can you give a more specific description of the
