Google analytics filter filtering out too much stuff

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi everyone,

 

I've got my custom filter set to the following on the google analytics add on for Sheets. It filters out any id's beginning with '486821' but it also seems to be restricting the length of any non matching values to 6 characters (the 6 character lengths are parent accounts while longer accounts are child accounts and I'll need visibility of Child accounts.)

 

Hope you can help, here's my code: ga:dimension1!@486821

 

Mike
