My filter which has Show stocks & apply to watch list was working all this time, today it stopped working all of a suden. when i tried to debug, i get the error "Error: Syntax error in filter.". It looks like something recently released has affected this. I don't see any official ancounecment that there is a problem. SF team, can you look into this?

query
-------
Show stocks
apply to watch list (ToBuy)

Please review the syntax for "apply to watchlist()".

Help Topic

In your example you have "watch list" (as two words.) It should be: "apply to watchlist(ToBuy)"

This was working until yesterday today it is not working. I am sure something is changed on the site. I understand you are doing some improvements, if you could let us know what changed it will be helpful

This worked yesterday
Show stocks
apply to watch list (ToBuy)


1) switching to watchlist alone did not fix. below did not work.
Show stocks
apply to watchlist (ToBuy)

2) Adding a where fixed the issue
Show stocks where
apply to watchlist (ToBuy)

We have not made any recent changes which would have modified how this phrase works; however, we would be sure to post updates concerning any change that might have altered how your filter would work.

Additionally, when we copy and paste your first example (with watchlist as a single word):


Show stocks
apply to watchlist (ToBuy)


We do see the same matches as your second example.

If possible, are there any more details you can provide? For example, are you running this as a saved filter, or are there additional commands within the filter where you used this syntax?

Unfortunately the "watch list" (two words) has never been supported syntax; so the output using that command may not have been predictable.

Yes I am running from saved filters under "My filters". Yes, there are additional parts in the query, but using debug I found it really complains only the show stocks and watch list part of query.

I also noticed that when I edit filters and then run the filter, it does not give any results back.
/stockdb/fetcher - this does not work.

But the filters works in /ui2/sffilter2.php

Hope this helps to resolve the issue.
