I'm working with MemoQ 2014 and was hoping someone could tell me whether or not it's possible to get a list of only the forbidden terms in the base.

I went to the sort and filter function but couldn't see anything there. It's a term-level characteristic and most of the sorting options look like they're entry level, so maybe that's the issue?

Basically, I want to see a list of the forbidden terms without having to go through the term base and click on each one to see whether it's marked as forbidden or not.

I'm thinking one work-around might be to export the termbase to Excel including the information about whether the term is forbidden and then sort in Excel. Maybe... But I'm hoping to get a solution inside MemoQ first! Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I had a similar problem some time ago, I had changed the status of some terms to Forbidden, but later I couldn't remember which were those terms! icon_smile.gif The only solution was to export the TB to Excel and then run a search for the NonTerm status in the Term_Info column.

Good luck!
