HI ,

I am trying to use regexm command (regexm(var,"us"))to see if the
values of variable have a particular string "us" like in  "us thyroid"
.Unfortunately , it is picking up "us" from other string values like
"venous".If there a way to formulate command so that it can pick up
only values  where "us" is a separate word and not part of word like

Thank you ,
Yours Sincerely,
