Hi, I have two Test files *.txt. The first of them contains general data written in a column. The second textfile there are several search strings written in a column. How do I compare these two files so that the output would tell me which of the search strings can be found in the general data column of the first textfiles? This posting is quite similar to my former one which is concerning the comparison of two Excel Spreadsheets. Thanks, Jurgen
