Hi Martin.  

As far as I recall you can use pretty much the same notation as studio

Do list. $search(pos(theChar,&ref.field)>0,ktrue, kfalse, ktrue,ktrue))

Parameters as studio.  

Or you can loop the list 

Set current list list
For each line in list
 Do a check of a list field for the characters

End for
