How to filter out detached reinforcement

Question:
A customer reported that when setting up a filter to only show a certain concrete column, the loose reinforcing barreinforcement that represents a steel bar used to reinforce a concrete structure

The steel bars are usually ribbed and they are used to increase the tensile strength of concrete.

that does not belong to a part is also visible.
This is the filter used:


  
The filter works well in showing only the CC prefixed parts and their reinforcing bars, but as you can see the loose reinforcing bar is also visible.
Can you advise what setting or filter condition would hide them?

Answer:

3rd and last lines: Object typedescription of a group of objects that share common characteristics

The objects are grouped based on different characteristics in models and in drawings. Examples of model object types are beams and rebar sets. Examples of drawing object types are parts and marks.

equals Reinforcing bar And PART.ID does not equal '0'
  means that reinforcement attached to parts is included (detached reinforcement excluded)
2nd line: Or object type does not equal Reinforcing bar means that objects whose type is not reinforcing bar are also included
1st line : And Assembly prefix begins with CC means that among those objects, the ones whose assembly prefix starts with CC are shown
