This is probably simple.

I cant figure out how to select lines in a list with a particular stringvalue.

Example: would like to select the string 'Here I am' regardless if the individual characters are lower or upper case.

'here I AM' or 'hEre I am' or whatever. upp() and low() doesn't seem to work. 

Set search as calculation mid(RES_TEXT;1;7)=('Here I am')
