  1. I would like to place text in a field called "textbegin" before the text that was already there. IN other words. How can I place text in a field before the existing text without losing the original text, If the field contains "mystery tour" I would like place "magical " before "mystery tour". Not sure how to calculate to make the cursor add my text before existing text in a field.
  2. How to I calculate to REMOVE either the Left number of characters or the Left number of words from a field Thank you
  3. Thanks Comment Thanks LaRetta In my case with this situation it is not possible to omit. But the point is well taken for other circumstances.

  5. I would like to apply a script only if one of my fields called "BeforeP" contains the words "your search" They are always the first two words in the field if they are present but I would like to find a way to execute another script if those two words are present. Thank for any help.
