Return data type: Boolean


Argument Description
field_name A name or a string expression evaluating to a field name to be searched for. The field must exist in the data loaded so far by the script.
expr An expression evaluating to the field value to look for in the field specified in field-name. If omitted, the current record’s value in the specified field is assumed.
