Built-in Functions → caseContains

caseContains() is a conditional statement that returns a specified string value if the input field contains the specified string, else returns another string value.


Use the caseContains() function to return a case sensitive string value.


caseContains(string field, string caseValue, string thenValue, ..., string elseValue)

The following table illustrates the caseContains() conditional statement parameters:

string fieldThe input field value to compare
string caseValueThe value compared against the string field value
string thenValueThe value returned as a result of matching codes, if the string field value contains the string caseValue
string elseValueThe value returned as a result of non-matching codes, if the string field value does not contain the string caseValue


String representing the thenValue and elseValue in the column.


This example maps the regions that contain “As” with “Asia”, and maps all other regions with "Other”.
