You could try
g byte dummy=(index(lower(rank),"b")>0)

Subject: st: how to cut string variables

I am trying to cut a variable so that I just keep the string portion  
of it. I have search the help for various options but it seems if you  
don't have a uniform stub you can't cut.
For example: my variable is:
Id    Rank
1    A2
2    B3
What I would like to create a variable as follows: dummy=1 if rank  
contains "b"
