Thanks for those insights Dan.  Yes this is a serious matter due to increa$ing 
fraud activity.

I saw the D-L variant on the wiki page and will take a look at that.

We are currently using a metaphone and not very pleased but will look at the 
dbl metaphone.

Thank you.

If this is something you take seriously, there are several other techniques you 
should use in conjunction with Levenshtein (I've done work in this area before).

The first 3 you should also look at acronym and abbreviation matching (eg, UK = 
United Kingdom, abbr = abbreviation) as well as some variant on phonetic 
matching (such as Double MetaPhone http://aspell.net/metaphone/dmetaph.cpp)

Do also look at the Damerau-Levenshtein variant as it is better suited catching 
intentional misspellings.

Regards,
Dan

Hi,

Does anyone have any Basic code that implements the algorithm, Levenshtein 
distance?

We are playing with words for a fraud detection project, trying discover bad 
guys better.

TIA,
-Baker

Thanks for all the good discussions - I'm lurking and reading now and then.  
Others usually provide splendid answers.
