I have some issue when using the CAML Contains statement when the field is a lookup field on a calculated column.

It basically does not work, the Equal works though.

here is the query, nothing special ...

         <FieldRef Name='MyLookupOnACalculatedField' />
         <Value Type='Text'>some value</Value>

Anybody else has the same issue ?

added to the original. This query works on a calculated field but does not work if this field is a lookup on a calculated field. –  GillouX Jun 27 '12 at 12:46
