Get stock description for scan filtering

Hello,

Hope you're all good :)

I want to filter ADR's from my scan, and since I'm not aware of any native way to do so, I wanted to filter via ThinkScript.
Is there a way to do something similar to the following condition:

stock_description not like "ADR"

Could not find it.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, ThinkScript doesn't give us access to things like company name, sector and all the other strings associated with symbols. There's also no string handling features other than concatenation and equality checks.

We had a similar request some time ago from someone who wanted to filter out symbols that have no sector. The advice he accepted was to add those symbols to a watchlist and then select that watchlist in the Exclude dropdown near the top of the scan. I can't think of any less tedious solution with what TOS gives us to work with.
