    Detect partial match in a table field

    hello guys,
    I have a table with ID, CompanyName and flag fields, having thousands of records. Some of these records have the same company name, but with different formats, example: "Commercial international Bank" similar to "CIB" "Europe African Bank" similar to "Bank of Europe Africa"

    What I am looking for is a Query or a Stored Procedure to find the records with a possible match and place "1" in the flag field. The process should not be 100% accurate, as the flag field will be used for a later human processing.

    Thx
