=== Why use XML ===
 +
 +
Some Woodford administrators prefer editing the filter in XML format because they are familiar with the used [[FetchXML]] format. See [[Sync_Filter#Analyzing_SyncFilter.xml|Analyzing SyncFilter.xml]] below for more information.

Additionally, there's also a rare scenario where the Woodford filter editor user interface does not allow you to be as exact in your sync filter as you need: some [[FetchXML#Special_FetchXML_options_for_Dynamics|SQL server optimization options for Dynamics]] can only be edited in XML format.
