I created custom lookup fields for my custom object in web UI. Some of these lookup fields have lookup field filters. I need to create the same filter for many other similar lookup fields. I downloaded the custom object to Force.com IDE. I have access to these lookup fields, but I can not find meta data (xml) for the lookup filter. Where should I look ?

The namedFilter appears as a child of the target object of the associated lookup field.

Basically you need to look in the metadata of the target custom object on the lookup field. Hope this helps.
