Determining if a field contains a text string

Post

Hi. I'm relativly new to Filemaker, and I am trying to write an If statment that checks to see if a field contains a text string.

The field is a set of check boxes with about seven values to choose from. What I'm trying to do is make a script that checks to see if "Value A" is selected (and then perform an action), even if Values B and D are checked off as well.

What I'm looking for is something akin to this:

If [TableName::FieldName = "Value A"]

Except replacing the = with something that means "contains" or "includes" so that the If will still work right even when multiple values are checked off.

Any ideas?
