  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Checks any valuelist for the occurrence of pString and displays only the values, which contains (pType = 1) or not contains (pType = 2) pString. Checking occurs from left (pDir = 1), right (pDir = 2) or middle (pDir = 3) and it's case-sensitive.
