Or there is something i do not understand, or the Carl example is wrong (!). I do not see here any difference in using ALL. Like changes doc of Core 2.5 explains, ALL must be used with SKIP: /all Used in combination with the /skip refinement. [NEW] By default only a single field in a record is used for comparison. If the /all refinement is used then all fields in a record are used for comparison. --- Ciao Romano
