IS there a way to compare strings to see how alike they are? I have sort of a db index of some files and I want it (actually a script) to do the following:<BR><BR>- Check to see if the file path is valid<BR>- If not, check for a closely similar path<BR>- if it is within a certain range of "closeness", update the DB with that new path<BR><BR>Is there a way to compare strings like that? Is there a better way to do this? That is probably the more accurate question. Thanks for any help you can offer.<BR><BR>-John
