    hi there. I have a bunch of postings for account descriptions that I would like to pull out the closest text that matches a certain list of vendors. The vendors I have created but the account description is from a gl posting. I can arrange the gl posting in any way but just need help identifying what vendor it is.

    For example one might say sft k or soft k or softkey all for Soft key inc. any idea how I would formulate this?
