  • Just a guess but maybe TV is used only for checkboxes? An alternate to an Exact match of 1 or true?

  • Mark, I believe this is to reference the index / ID# of a lookup field.

    EX would match the input value,
    TV would match the numeric reference value of a searched proxy field

      I think I came to the conclusion that the TV was used to match on User field types.
