checking a portal for an occurrence of a few strings..

I'm trying to check if a filename in a portal of attachments contains one of a few words, and then have it auto-enter "yes" into a text field if so... it's entering nothing into the text field even when the strings I'm searching for exist in the related value list.. what am I doing wrong ?

Let (



[values = ValueListItems(Get(FileName); "attachments")]; 



Case(



(



 (PatternCount( values; "CV") >0)



or 



(PatternCount (values ; "resume") >0)



or  (PatternCount(values ; "app") >0)



  );  "yes"; "") )

thanks :

For one thing, you don't need the square brackets in your Let function when you only have one expression, but I'm not sure that would break the calc. Is the related table in the same file? If not, then Get(FileName) would fail. Is "attachments" the correct v/l name?

Since you have FileMaker 8 Advanced, use the Data Viewer to evaluate each piece of your calc and you should find the answer easily.
