There is a service that allows you to find values based on the string
name..... If you need it, I can likely find it. I intended to add an
example into the next edition of OOME, I do not remember if it is
already there or not. Apart from that, I usually just look up the value.
Worst case, print the value.

I do believe that you have seen AndrewMacro, which contains an example
that demonstrates that yes, you can. Just OR the values together. I
likely show the same thing in OOME. I am currently working through the
Calc chapter as time permits. I need to hurry, because the German
translator is translating faster than I am creating more content.
