name does NOT contain

I am trying to eliminate funds from my search result (I only want to see stocks in my scanning results).

What is the scan criteria? [name does not contain 'fund'], does not work.

Thank you in advance.

    Assuming you want to eliminate ETFs also, you need 2 statements - one for funds, one for ETFs. See example below.

    // define universe
    [type is stock]

    and [type is not fund]

    and [group is not ETF]

    and [country is US]

    and [market cap > 10000]

    and [close > 10]
    and [close < 20]

    NOTE: All acceptable parameters for the terms displayed in the drop downs on the advanced scan page (like "type" under Ticker Properties) are detailed in the newly revised scan documentation accessible from the "Instructions" line at the bottom of the advanced scan page.
