You can use the !SET qualifier to transform the generation factor into
another value and then filter on that.

For example, if you want generations 3, 6, and 9, I think you could go
something like:
Title line
  Gen 16 Data
  Gen369 2 !=V1 !SET 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 !FILTER Gen369 !SELECT 2

If you want only stuff after a set generation then you could specify the
generation from the command line and drop

Title line
  Gen 16 Data
  GenSel !=V1 !>$A !D 0

  Subject: Fw: filtering data

  Hello -

  I have a quick question regarding filtering data. I'm running some animal
models and want to do this in some subsets as well as in the full data set.
  For example I have data on animals from 15 generations and using the data
file qualifier

  !FILTER generation !SELECT 4

  I can restrict the data set to just those animals in generation 4.
However, is there a way to specify a range of values to accept in the
"generation" field e.g. if I wanted to use animals in all generations
greater than 4, or in generations 4 - 8? Obviously I could build different
data files for these subsets but I am hoping there might be an easier way.
