Sean is asleep now, so i will help you out for today ;-)

Try this (will work ;-)

on mouseup ## or whatever
   if offset(the system date, fld "viestit") is 0 then put empty into 
fld "viestit"
end mouseup

offset("what to look for", "where") will be 0 if the string is NOT 
found in "where"
(be it a field of var or whatsoever...)

That's all...
