Filter data according to the name of filed!

I have a problem with data filtering in KoBo tables as question (type = select one) depend on "if the name contain … " not on “the whole value” and not on its label
for example:
i have “select one” question, choices labels are unique but its name are sequential names, after collecting data i found when i filter this column will not be completely accurate
i.e. choices are as follow:
names : con 1 , con 11 , con 12
labels: Rany , Ahmad , John
If i filter data column by selecting Rany for example, all the other data related to Ahmad and John will appear because their names contain “1” !!!

The KoBo behaviour seems to be contains (not equals). You may have a look at a previous posting, incl. a github link

But maybe @Kal_Lam can say how a complex condition can be entered in the KoBo filter cell. With an &not condition you might be able to limit the search further.
