I have a table of items that can be filtered by many aspects, one of which, for example, is status. The filter is represented by a dropdown, where the default option is to not filter by any status.
Is it more correct to label this option "All Statuses", indicating that when selected, all of the possible statuses will be represented in the table, or "Any status", with a meaning more like "show me items with any status".
EDIT -- More Info:
The general context is workflow management. The user is a manager reviewing the items and perhaps assigning them to other users.
The other options in the dropdown are "Open", "Closed", "Assigned", and maybe a few industry specific options like "Referred" or "Under Investigation".
It's a webapp, and the various dropdowns are presented in a
<fieldset> labeled "Filters". The status dropdown itself is labeled "Status:". A crude ASCII drawing:
+=== Filters =============... | | Office: [Any Office|^] | Status: [Any Status|^]
