    No Filter function ignores the filters applied in the table / block while doing the calculation.

    Note:

    • NoFilter(obj;Drill) does not work in query drill mode because the drill filters are added to the query rather than applied to the report data.

    • If you end drill mode with drill filters applied, the drill filters become report filters and can change the value of any objects to which NoFilter(obj;Drill) is applied

    For example

    If there are 11 cities in report, two are in California and California is filtered out , the formula NoFilter( Count(<City>) ) returns 11. (The formula Count(<City>) returns 9.)
