Greetings,

I know this is a basic question but I'm having problems to list a specific
element in a variable. The elements in the variables are drugs names,
therefore are string format.

The command that I'm using is:

List [name of the variable] if [name of the variable]==TAGAMET

Could somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong? or if there is other way to
do
that? Thank your for your time.

Best regards -- Daniel Sepulveda
