Although the structure will differ for each type of PBX, call records
will look something like those shown in Figure 8.2. Examine the call
records to locate the ﬁeld location(s) you intend to monitor.

menu is used to deﬁne the Data Filter.

need to monitor. In the last line in Figure 8.3, dashes have been
entered in the ﬁrst three ﬁelds of the call record.

uppercase letter from A to Z to assign that variable to the position.
For example, to assign "A" to represent the ﬁrst seven digits
of the number dialed, enter seven A's (AAAAAAA) as shown in
Figure 8.3. The same variable is repeated for each position in the
ﬁeld. It is not necessary to deﬁne variables in alphabetic order.
c) When you reach the end of the call record, or the last position you
need to monitor, press [Enter]. The Data Filter Format will be
