# Report Builder: Dialog filter

This filter allows you to filter information based on a hierarchy. The filter has the following options:

• is any value: This option disables the filter (i.e. all information is accepted by this filter).
• is equal to: This option allows only information that is equal to the value selected from the list.
• is not equal to: This option allows only information that is different from the value selected from the list.

Once a framework item has been selected you can use the Include children? checkbox to choose whether to match only that item, or match that item and any sub-items belonging to that item.
