Calc for spotting unique value from a list

Greets, all:


I need a calculation that checks to see if a unique value (notice the singular) in a specific field exists in a found set of records; the calc can either be in native FileMaker code or use ExecuteSQL.


Obviously, I could use the Find command but iI'd like to avoid that since even with using Freeze Window there's some flickering and klunky code to add, too; a calc that would tell me that the value is there would solve things very neatly.


I thought of using PatternCount with ListValues but the problem is that since the value I'm looking for is spelled, Master, it will count/find Masters so that won't work.


Thanks in advance for your help!
