Description:

Determine whether Text contains ALL of the strings contained in SearchStrings ('and' logic)
In SearchStrings strings should be separated by commas, semicolons, or ¶
To include commas, semicolons, ¶ (to be matched) in SearchStrings, include \ before them
Restriction: the following !-containing strings may not be part of SearchStings: !c! !s! !p!
Similar to Position function but will assess several SearchStrings, gives 0 or 1 (No or Yes) as Result
Written in response to request from John Vermeulen
Updated April 2017 with no functional change, just easier-to-understand formatting and comments
A shortcoming of this occurred to me: the entirety of Text is evaluated for each new SearchStrings value. Thus, ContainsAll ("Mike,Pete" ; "Pete¶ete¶e\,P") would evaluate as 1, even though it's finding the same text over and over. The same would happen with the SearchString being "Pete¶Pete".
