Close!  I'll give you the statement in 2 passes... first is paraphrased for readability...

Boolean.valueOf( <STATEMENT1> || <STATEMENT2> || <STATEMENT3>)

where <STATEMENT1> is $F{U_TYPE}.startsWith( "Deglyc") etc. etc.


So total answer would be:

Boolean.valueOf($F{U_TYPE}.startsWith( "Deglyc") || $F{U_TYPE}.startsWith( "Glyc") || $F{U_TYPE}.startsWith( "WB"))


I'd have to test... but this should work also...

OR($F{U_TYPE}.startsWith( "Deglyc") ,$F{U_TYPE}.startsWith( "Glyc"),$F{U_TYPE}.startsWith( "WB"))
