Which Values match a specified Value

Author: Tim Anderson

Format: WhichValuesPlus ( values ; match ; start ; sep )

This returns a string of the value numbers of all 'values'
that are the same as 'match' separated by 'sep'.

'start' is included to allow interation, and to give you control
over where to start the search - by default use 1

I have tried to remove the leading 'sep' but cannot find a
way - functions on _result don't seem to work. Suggestions
welcome!
