This function parses a symbol custom database and returns a value of one on bars where the database field data contain a specific word.
This function accepts three parameters. The first one is the database name (Example: ' yahoo_news ' if you are using the yahoo news downloader - Yahoo News), the second one is the field name (Using the same downloader, it should be 'title') and finally the last parameter is a list of the words we are searching for.
