Hi,

You can have the same result without recursion

Let ([

L = "Item List¶item_scripting¶User List¶user_scripting¶Prefs" ;
No = "_scripting" ;
Ln = Substitute ( Upper ( L ) ; Upper ( No ) ; "" ) // or no upper for case sensitive

];
FilterValues ( L ; Ln )
)

Shouldn't you trap for multiple values in string?

Let ([

L = "Item List¶item_scripting¶User List¶user_scripting¶Prefs" ;
No = "_scripting¶Item" ;
Ln = Substitute ( Upper ( L ) ; Upper ( GetValue(No;1) ) ; "" ) // or no upper for case sensitive

];
FilterValues ( L ; Ln )
)
