Exclamation "Select box" or drop down is what he meant folks.

Man, sometimes it comes out in writing as looking really complex doesnt it?!? (it really isnt!)

HTHs
For the benefit of any futured puzzled folks having the same problem that both Ramses and ourselves had (can't find the 'allow to filter by this field' option or Filter claims that no Custom fields are defined) I feel obligated to clarify the Geek's statement just a bit:

You need to have a "Select box" custom field created that will hold the value you want to filter on. It makes sense, you never want to be filtering on a text box for instance, as minor spelling or abreviation differences will play havok with your ability to bring up matching records/articles. So you (at this point?) can only filter on values that the author selected (ha!) from a pre-defined dropdown "Select box".

Phew... The frustration that tiny little bit of info can cause till you figure it out in a sudden "A-HA!" moment .
