Partial Text matching

Al
Hi,
I am currently using IndexOf to see if a string contains another string but
it only works if there is exact match. In case of misspelling etc it wont
work. I was wondering if anyone aware of partial text matching algorithm or
routine for VB.net. Furthermore, since I need to apply this to many records
in database I need the routine be very fast.

Many thanks in advance

Al

A regular expression would probably do what you want. Here is a link
to an online Regular Expression library that should have many examples,
some of which might be similar to what you want to do.
