Hi. If you only need to produce a number, use the built-in, faster "fmt=count" 
instead of fmt=#template.

1. Values starting with "-" are always excluded, like:

   $:Var=-Opt1    -- the value of :Var: is not "Opt1"
    -- counts :Var:Opt1,Opt2   but not    :Var:Opt1

   $:Var=-*Opt1*  -- the value of :Var: does not contain "Opt1"
    -- counts neither :Var:Opt1,Opt2   nor   :Var:Opt1

2. A comma means inclusive OR, except for 1. above.

   -- counts   :Var:Opt1   but not    :Var:Opt1,Opt2

   -- counts   :Var:Opt1   and    :Var:Opt1,Opt2

   -- counts   :Var:Opt1   and   :Var:Opt2   but not  :Var:Opt1,Opt2

   -- counts   :Var:Opt1   and   :Var:Opt2  and  :Var:Opt1,Opt2,Opt3

   -- counts   :Var:Opt1  and  :Var:Opt1,Opt2  but not  :Var:Opt2,Opt3

  $:Var=*Opt1*Opt2*,*Opt2*Opt1*  -- contains both Opt2 and Opt1
   -- counts   :Var:Opt1,Opt2  and  :Var:Opt2,Opt1 and :Var:Opt2,Opt3,Opt1
