Confiforms: How to check multi-select field to see if user selected a specific value

I have a form with a Smart Multi-Select field configured. I want to show or hide another field based on the user selection in this field.

First Form

Has the following field

USER_SEL_TOOLS (Smart Multi-Select field)


Second Form

Has the following fields

TOOL_NAME (Text field)

TOOL_ATTRIBUTES (Multi-Select field)


example record

|     TOOL_NAME     |    TOOL_ATTRIBUTES     |

|     hammer        |    wood, metal        |


I want to build a conditional statement for a Confiforms Rules for Field Definition that looks to see if the user selected "hammer" and if "hammer" has the attribute "wood" selected. If this is true, then perform action.

I can get the select values from TOOL_ATTRIBUTES:


Returns "wood metal" when testing by setting the value of a text field. However, I can't seem to get the CONDITION to evaluate and the action to execute:

I set condition to the following and that worked:
