      Can I get FileMaker to tell the difference between "a" and "ä" ?

      Post

      I have the following calculation in a field which highlights whether an "a" has been used at the end of field:infinitiveFinnish or "ä"

      If (Right(infinitiveFinnish;1) = "ä"; "ä";"a")

      After much confusion as to why this simple calculation wasn't working, it seems that FileMaker cannot tell the difference between "a" and "ä".

      Is this the case, and if so, is there a way around it?

      Many thanks
