If I see the qualification it should remove these grouping because all the operators are AND and does not make sense to group them until unless there are OR operators to group them.
While most of the time you would not need the extra groupings around AND equations, in this case I need them. Only thing I can come up with is to build a filter guide where I can break apart the qualification. Doesn't seem practical, but I need this to function this way.

The parenthesis are actually added by Dev Studio from the 'source' object in the meta-data....nothing you see is actually stored as text, it's all numeric references to things...so the text is constructed and deconstructed on the fly....which is why it's dropping the 'unneeded' parens, because they aren't necessary from a Boolean perspective....the only way to get it to keep them is to make them significant, which they aren't in this case.
Thank you LJ. That makes sense.
