I'm trying to look for certain features based on a field, but I would like to do so based on the description of the field instead of the actual value of the field (the actual values are numbers, but the description has strings with useful information).
Is there any clean way to do this using the field calculator?
I have a shapefile with the following field:
As you can see the description has strings values that start with a keywork '(residencial)' '(comercial)' amongst other values, what I want is to use the field calculator, for example to look for features that in the description have the key word '(residential)':
Something like so, this doesn't work since the actual field is a number in a string format.
