Description:

With an intuitive identity, this function evaluates a collection of related records (for instance through a portal) to determine if any of those records meet a specified criterion on the specified related record field and returns "true" for the whole collection of related records if even one matches and "false" for the whole collection of related records if none match.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.
