Getting appropriate text from a field

Dear Filemaker Community,


I have tried extracting very specific text from a field amongst a lot of other texts, many of them quite similiar using the command substitute. However, this was very cumbersome and did not work very well.


I can extract specific text from a filemaker field when the field becomes a variable in Stata. I can create a dummy variable with the specific text in Stata. Creation of dummy variables seems to be relatively straight forward in Stata.


For my own Filemaker learning how to do create a new field from an existing field with very specific text?


Many thanks
