    Hi Phil, 

    How is the structure set up? 

    I got a chance to download the XML files you provided, but noticed that the "Drill down from parent collection" was not checked. 

    So was wondering if the machines that you are trying to list is of the main container (if there is one). 

    Secondly, i noticed that "Dell Client System - Not Current.xml" does not have any rules set except for "Never scan" and "collection". 

    How are you filtering the software in that particular collection? 

    For the 3rd file, instead of starting off with "Match all" or "Do not match all", change the rule in the filters to "Does not contain" instead to see if that makes a difference. That way, you're not playing with double negatives? Just a suggestion. Since i'm not running any Dell Client systems, none of the machines are showing up in the containers, so i'm trying to eye it.

    Hi Phil,

    Change the Dell Client System Not Installed filters to these:

    Don't Match Any

    Application Name contains Dell Client System

    Computer Never Scanned is True

    That will give you what you are looking for.

    TonsOFun, just replace the Dell Client System with an application that you have on some of your computers and you'll be able to test it out. As you have noted, eyeballing it can be kinda tough.

    You can view this attachment to see what I am talking about.

    This tells the collection to include computers that do NOT match ANY of these filters

    1) any computer with an application name that contains "Dell Client System"

    2) any computer that has never been scanned
