Add Query Studio filtering functionality to WSA/Cognos 11

Query Studio contains the “Matches SQL Pattern” operator that allows users to very easily input multiple partial values when filtering on a field. WSA/11 offers the same operator but only allows one value to be added at a time (even if using the combined option). Some users pull large amounts of data across multiple values and using WSA/11 would be very cumbersome to do this compared to Query Studio. Report Studio is only an option for advanced users, not casual users.
