I'm a newbie and have not been able to find a way to limit the results of a filter to "Top n" (for instance, sort a filter based on volume and only return the top 50 based on rank of volume). Any way to do this?

Ultimately, I'm trying to create an AutoFill Watch List which will always have the "Top n" based on some criteria I specify.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Have you downloaded the USER GUIDE?

OPTION1:
You can sort results by clicking on the header within a particular cell. Clicking a second time will reverse the sort.

OPTION2: The column number is used (symbol=1, volume=4)


sort column 4 ascending

-or-

sort column 4 descending

--
OPTION3:

volume between 1 and 400

--
I don't know how to restrict to an exact number (ie, top 50)

You can't restrict the results to a set number.

You cannot limit your results to a set number, but you can limit the Number of symbols returned per page based on 5/10/20/25/50 or 100. If you want the top 50 results of a specified filter, go to settings/results and select 50 results per page and save. You should then have the top 50 results for your filter on the first page of results based upon your sort criteria. This is not exactly what you are wanting but it may provide you some limitation rationale as that first page would yield the top 50.

Straken,

I forgot about this feature. Nicely done.
