Scan for Bollinger Bands in my watchlists

I am using Bollinger Bands: how can I scan ONLY my watch lists? Right now my results seem to include only "external" results. Is there a video lesson on this? Thank you.

    On the Advanced Scan Workbench, in the Scan Components box, there is a window labelled Chartlists.

    Open that window, select your list, and click Add.

    The list name will appear on the last line of your scan. You may have to scroll down to see it.

    Highlight the list name line, cut it and paste it to the top line of your scan. If the word "and" precedes the list name, delete it.

    If you want to scan more that one list, you have to make an "or" statement from the lists you want to scan, like this:

    [ // start or statement for lists

    [favorites list is 99] // my industrials


    [favorites list is 98] // my energy stocks


    [favorites list is 97] // my etfs



    ] // end or statement for lists

    Always select and add the lists from the drop down. Don't just type in "favorites list is whatever".
