Performance equation FindEQ for string tag (not digital state) works sometimes ?

Some of our users have begun using Data Sets in ProcessBook displays that call the FindEQ function looking for a string tag to be equal to a given value like:

 

FindEQ('col3260:Unit_procedure','*-11h','*',"UP_RVPH_COL_CHRG:1-1")

 

The quoted string is correct for a particular phase they are looking for in the unit.  However, this tag is just a string tag, and not a Digital tag.  The function appears to be generating many, many 'PIvalue Type is Not Allowed For This Call' message in the PI Message Log.  Is this a legal way to use this function, or when comparing to a string must the tag be a Digital tag?
