"filter" and "matchtext" take a bit of practice. It seems you have more stuff in your filterPattern than you need, but I could be mistaken, As a test, make a field with the following in it:

Now in a button:

on mouseUp
   get fld 1
   filter it without "bb" --also try "filter with..."
end mouseUp

Does this do what you intended?

I've tried 20 different ways of syntax for a filter and still cannot make it 

I'm trying to filter the lines of a field that contains a specific string, say 
"d14" somewhere within the field.

Here is the latest that did NOT work:

on mouseUp

filter field column3 with "* "d14" *"

end mouseUp
