>I'm not sure that a logical is the answer, although the XLATE op code can be
used to translate the characters in RPG.  There was a discussion here a year
or so ago regarding SOUNDEX implementation on the AS/400 (e.g., key in
what the name "sounds like" and get a record back).  Anyone still have those
old posts?

Dean Asmussen

I have a copy of a Soundex implementation from the May 30, 1995 PC
Magazine.  I can fax it if you would like.  The example is in C++ but it should
be fairly easy to convert.  There is a good description of the algorithm,
shortfalls, strengths and how to modify it.  There was an article in one of the
AS/400 magazines shortly thereafter.  It is not listed on the spine so I will
have to dig if you really want it.
