Global filtering via "filtering" attribute does not work with copy task





------- Additional Comments From peterwlynch@yahoo.com  2001-11-15 11:30 -------
In response to the question:
"Also, can you let me know where the 
documentation describes this and I'll double check it."

I think I figured out where I got lost.

The filter task has the filtersfile attribute. That is clear.
The filterset can have nested filter tasks.
The filterset can be globally referred to by id.
The filter tasks that are nested in filtersets are not allowed to have the 
filtersfile attribute. When you try this, you **don't** get a message telling 
you to use filtersfile task nested within a filterset task.

It seems to be weird overlap here. While the docs technically make clear what 
is available where, it still can be confusing why the filtersfile attribute is 
not available in the filter task nested inside a filterset.

The docs between filtersfile and filter are technically correct, but still 
require the user to very carefully read.
