I want to use AttributeFilter and I need to filter data by ATTRIBUTE1 with possible values of ATTRIBUTE2. What is the syntax for it?
etc. but wasn't successful.
Sounds like you need to add a feature merger for attributes only.
If you could expand on the question can give a better answer.
Note: Using FME 2012 here
The AttributeFilter is when you want to filter by a number of possible values.
If you just want to check whether Attribute1 = Attribute2, then use a Tester transformer.
If you want to check whether Attribute1 = Attribute2, or Attribute3, or Attribute4, etc, then use a TestFilter transformer.
If you want to check whether Attribute 1 = A, or B, or C where these are possible values of Attribute2, then just enter them into the AttributeFilter, or use the Import option.
I think the syntax is:
I would think that #2 would work, but did you try all caps, as in
&ATTRIBUTE2? Also, have you tried importing the Possible Attribute Values to see what that might give you:
I do not know what AttributeFilter you mean but in "Definiton Query" of ArcGIS it done this way: "ATTRIBUTE1" = "ATTRIBUTE2" - this will select all rows whith the same value in both fields
