The Data Filters
To deﬁne the Data Filter Format, proceed as follows.
1. Access command mode as described in Section 19.1. When the Main
Menu appears, type 1 and press [Enter] to access the Status Displays
Screen. Check the Status Screen for the input port that you intend to
ﬁlter (Port A, Port B, or AUX). Make certain the Time/Date Stamp
is Off at that port. The Port Conﬁguration menus enable/disable the
Time/Date Stamp at each port.
Note: When the Time/Date Stamp is On, ﬁeld locations will be
altered; the Time/Date Stamp appends extra characters to each
record. This may cause errors in the Data Filter Format. Disable
this feature prior to storing records that will be used when deﬁning
the Data Filter Format.
2. Press [Esc] to return to the Main Menu. Allow the VIP to collect
several PBX records.
3. From the Main Menu, type 26 and press [Enter] to access the Data
Filter selector menu. When the selector menu appears, type 1 (for
Data Filter 1) or 2 (for Data Filter 2) and then press [Enter]. The Data
Filter conﬁguration menu will appear (Figure 8.1).
4. From the Data Filter conﬁguration menu, type 2 and press [Enter].
The Data Filter Format deﬁnition menu will appear as shown in
5. The Data Filter Format deﬁnition menu will show three sample PBX
records (if available) followed by the previous format deﬁnition (if
available). Although the structure will differ for each type of PBX,
call records will look something like those shown in Figure 8.3.
Examine the call records to determine the ﬁeld location(s) you intend
to monitor (e.g., number dialed).
