Use the Collection Limiting dialog box in Configuration Manager 2007 to specify whether a query is limited to a specific collection or will run against all available collections. This dialog box is usually displayed when you run a query that has the Prompt for collection option.

The Collection Limiting dialog box contains the following elements:

Not Collection Limited

Specifies that the query will run without being limited to a specific collection.
Limit to Collection

Specifies that the query will run against only the given collection. If this option is selected, a collection must be specified. To specify a given collection, type the collection name or click Browse to select a collection using the Browse Collection dialog box. For more information about this dialog box, see Browse Collection Dialog Box.
When you limit a query to a collection, that query is limited only to the collection that you specify. Subcollections are not included in this collection, as they are actually separate collections that are simply linked to a parent collection.
