So, the test is 

count if substr(var1, -2, 2) == ":2" 

Martin Weiss

Tunga wants only ":2" at the end of his strings, so Kit`s solution could
be
problematic, as it seems to search anywhere within the string...

*************
clear
input str9 var1
"2011017:1"
"2011018:1"
"2011018:2"
"2011026:1"
"2011:20:1"
"2011041:1"
end
count if strpos(var1,":2") > 0
