You can use the Match function.

Match([Country];"F*") returns True if [Country} is "France"

Match([Country];"?S?") returns True if [Country] is "USA"

Match("New York";"P*") returns False

The pattern can contain the wildcards "*" (replaces any set of characters) or "?" (replaces any single character)

You also need to note that the data type needs to be of type "string".

Further you can use the IF statement as the match function just returns a True or False... i.e IF MATCH is true THEN x ELSE y..

Hope this helps
