I wrote an egen extension for soundex coding and I think I posted it SSC a few years ago, but now I can't find it using search.

Yhis sounds like a job for something similar to Donald Knuth's soundex algorithm. You can find out more about this at

http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/stg/pub/S/soundex.html

or at

http://us2.php.net/soundex

or at

http://west-penwith.org.uk/misc/soundex.htm

I hope this helps.

Roger
