## Match Tickets in File

This filter compares ticket with other tickets in a selected file. The filter accepts a ticket if it matches tickets from the file in selected count of numbers.

To use the filter, first click Browse button to browse for the file with tickets to be compared with filtered tickets. Then tick the desired matching combinations in the table below. The match file can be either in binary or text format.

### Example

Let's assume we want to compare filtered tickets with the following ticket file:

1. 01-02-03-04-05-06
2. 01-02-03-05-44-49
3. 01-02-03-20-25-26
4. 20-21-22-30-31-32
5. 40-41-42-43-44-45
• When filter settings are Match 3 then:
• 01-02-03-04-05-06 - filter accepts this ticket because it matches in three numbers with ticket number 3 in the match file.
• 43-44-45-47-48-49 - filter accepts this ticket because it contains three numbers from the last ticket in the file.
• 20-21-22-30-33-34 - filter rejects this ticket because it contains four numbers from ticket number 4 in the file and doesn't have three numbers from any other ticket in the file.
• When filter settings are Match 5, Match 4 then:
• 01-02-03-04-05-06 - filter accepts this ticket because it contains four numbers from the second ticket in the file.
• 01-20-21-22-30-31 - filter accepts this ticket because it contains five numbers from the fourth ticket in the file.
• 42-43-44-47-48-49 - filter rejects this ticket because it contains only three numbers from the last ticket in the file.
• When filter settings are Match 3, Max 1 then:
• 20-21-22-40-44-45 - filter accepts this ticket because it contains three numbers from the fourth ticket in the file and doesn't match any other ticket in three numbers.
• 01-02-03-44-45-46 - filter rejects this ticket because it contains three numbers from the first three ticket in the file and the filter condition limits that maximum count of matching ticket to one only.
• 01-02-03-04-05-06 - filter accepts this ticket because it matches in three numbers with ticket number 3 in the file.
• When filter settings are Match 0, Min 3 then:
• 04-05-06-07-08-09 - filter accepts this ticket because there are three tickets in the file that don't match this ticket in any number (third, fourth and fifth).
• 01-02-03-04-05-06 - filter rejects this ticket because there are only two ticket in the file that don't match this ticket in any number (fourth and fifth).
