If anyone can shed some light on the difference between "In literal list" versus "Equal to" when filtering on fields in InfoAssist I would appreciate the insight. Thanks.

Jim:
Is your WF version 7.6?

WHERE CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY IN ( 'ENGLAND' , 'FRANCE', 'JAPAN' );


is a shorter way of saying

WHERE CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY EQ 'ENGLAND' OR 'FRANCE' OR 'JAPAN';

The effect is the same.
