Guide VIII suggests the following:

Suppose it is desired that records be dropped that satisfy the logical ".AN=
D." of several conditions. This can be implemented by using an ACCEPT list =
with the negations of the conditions. For example, suppose that records to =
be ignored are those having GEN=1 .AND. AGE > 60. This may be done as fol=

Hi Colleagues,

Although there are many workarounds to manage the input datasets for NONMEM=
, use of IGNORE would be a very handy solution. However, I am surprised to=
 see that AND is not supported by NONMEM. e.g. IGNORE=(CMT.EQ.1, AND CMT=
.EQ.2 ) would throw an error. In contrast, NONMEM use OR for IGNORE=(CMT=
.EQ.1, CMT.EQ.2 ) by default, which is quite different for the common pract=
ice of software.

I am wondering if the AND feature has been or will be implemented in the la=
st/future NONMEM version.

Thank you,
