When using the filter in table data view in base, when you apply filters which result in 0 items matching the criteria, the filter values are cleared, making you start over. As long as SOME data matches the filter criteria then you can click on the filter icon and modify your filter rules. Unless your filter rules result in nothing returned. Then the filter icon is greyed and the filter set can no longer be modified. It must be cleared and you have to start over again. Which is very frustrating when you've built a complex filter set and have to start from scratch when the results are empty. Example: fieldname foo = 45 And fieldname bar = "monkey" Then click ok. if this results in a match, you can click the filter icon again and modify the filter set and carry on. for example: fieldname foo = 45 And fieldname bar = "monk%" Then click ok. but. if, for example, there's a typo or for whatever reason no data is returned such as from the following. fieldname foo = 45 And fieldname bar = "mynkey" Then click okay The filter icon is greyed, and the only way to carry on is to clear the filter and add your filters again.

Please check in OOo 3.3, it works for me in OOo 3.3 on win7. I can modify filter criteria if results is empty.
