Stu and everyone else,

Thanks for sticking with me but I'm going to  ask you to take a look one more time. I inserted your suggestion in line 9 This time I include my full paragraph and the error message that comes up is a syntax error. Anyone else reading please feel free to contribute. Many thanks for any thoughts.

It's hard to help without seeing your error msgs.  The [1] means the last byte of FIELD.NAME.  If any byte could contain "*" then perhaps (INDEX(FIELD.NAME,'*',1) OR INDEX(FIELD.NAME,'Incomplete',1)) would work.  This should work in UNIQUERY.  I tried in on UniVerse and it works and should work on UniData.

I tried it. It didn't seem to work but maybe I didn't do it right. I did include the [1] in there. I'm a newbie, was I not suppose to. I'm also running this in a UNIQUERY statement at the colon prompt. Would that have anything to do with it not running properly. Thanks for whatever light you can shed on my case.

I'm trying to get this statement to work:
Basically I'm trying to count the number of records that have a FIELD.NAME that has an "*" or an "Incomplete".

TOTAL EVAL "IF(WITH FIELD.NAME LIKE "'...*','Incomplete'") THEN COUNTER ELSE 0"

Thanks for any assistance.

Kevin
