    I've been using the ANZ "Advanced Stock Filter" and whilst not overly complex it does what I need it to do.

    At least it did until it broke some weeks ago and thus far my efforts to get ANZ to fix it have been ignored....

    So I'm looking for something that allows user specified criteria. Eg I don't necessarily want to only find stocks with a dividend yield over 4%, I want to be able to specify that as 4.08% (random example) and I want to be able to have several criteria which must all be met (eg dividend yield after tax, EPS, P/E ratio etc).

    Everything I can find online either can't apply several criteria on an AND basis (must meet this one AND this one AND that one), doesn't have the specific functions I'm looking for (notably dividend yield taking franking into account and dividend growth over 5 or 10 years seem to be missing from most) or is limited to pre-selected values that aren't the ones I want to use.

    If I need to pay then I'll pay but since ANZ offers it free I'm guessing someone else probably does too. If I need to change brokers then I will - I sure don't trust that ANZ will fix this since their standard practice seems to be to completely ignore customer complaints about problems.

    ANZ one looks like this. I did try the Morningstar site, signed up for the trial, but the same tool or anything that can do the same things doesn't seem to be there despite that being ANZ's apparent data source.

    For those wanting to know what's wrong with it, using it comes up with:

    I've tried it on 2 devices using different internet providers so I'm pretty sure the problem is at ANZ's end not mine. Sent an email but, of course, no response received and I very much doubt I'll get one based on past experience.

    PS - the criteria I put in aren't what I actually use, just some randoms to show how it works.

    CMC Markets Stockbroking offer this. You could open an account for free I guess.

    Looks like they both use the same underlying search engine from Morning Star.

    Commsec offer a screener that looks like it may come close. It'll let you put in your own numbers, albeit with a few quirks. I haven't played with it much, but i just tried putting in a 19.9 P/E as per your example and it gets changed to 20.61. No idea why, but overall it seems to work.

    Might be Morningstar - CMCs isn't working either it seems.

    Thanks for the feedback. :)

    Interesting if CMC also isn't working as that does suggest a common element if both are sourcing their data from Morningstar.

    For now I've pieced together the data from a couple of sites. Got what was available, put it all into a spreadsheet and used that to filter it out. Has done the job but that's a fairly time consuming way to go about it so I'll check out Commsec or some other option if ANZ / Morningstar doesn't fix it reasonably soon.
