Title

Calculation or relationship for if "field contains"

Post

Hi guys, 

 

I'm sure someone can help me, I'm new to FileMaker. 

 

I have a field with 3 repetitions. Say for example the field contains the text    "red", "green", "blue"

 

 

What operator would I use if I want to say "If field contains the text "green"... perform whatever calculation. I can't use = because I only want it to do the calculation if it contains just one color.

 

 

Secondly how would I set a relationship up so that it isn't if...   field "A" = field "B"     it's     field "A" contains the same as field "B" when "A" has 3 repetitions.

 

 

Sorry if this doesn't make sense.
