How to run this formula in a report


I'm trying to run a report that should validate as follows. The system isn't accepting it and I probably have it parsed incorrectly. Can someone take a look please?

(1 AND 3 (OR  2 (OR  (4 AND 5))) AND 6)

Can you try like below?

(1 AND (3 OR 2 OR (4 AND 5)) AND 6)

Let me know if this helps.

It now accepts it but I realized that I probably have to adjust my logic.
I need to exclude from the report the (4 and 5) if it is true.

Everything else is right. Any ideas?

Can you explain what is exactly the logic, may be I can help you building the formula
Ok. I have the following
1. Responsible Company = Enterprise Insurance Group (Has to be True)
2. Record Type Not Equal to X (Can't be X)
3. Status is Active (Has to be true)
4.  Record Type is W
5. Account Size is greater than 15000
(If 4 and 5 are true, it excludes that record)
6. Special Account not equal to true (If true it excludes it)

I have everything running great except how to word the logic for (4 and 5) = true is removed.

Can you change your filter at 4 and 5 like below:
4. Record Type In (here you can give all record type names except W) , or may be you can do Record type != W
5. Account size <15000

and let the formula be same.
Manish, I don't understand why or how I would do Record Type ! = W
Could you please explain?
