    Default Select by attribute

    Hi,

    I work on ArcGIS 9.2, Windows XP.

    I have records in an attribute table of a personal geodatabase like the ones shown here (Field 1 is in black and Field 2 in blue). Both are text fileds.

    Field 1 Field2
    84A ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA 59 ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA
    67 ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA 67A ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA
    1 ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA 1A ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA


    I would like to select all the records that are 'matched' between Field 1 and Field 2. In this example, the second and third records are matched (and should be selected), but not the first.

    Can anyone perhaps help me with a select by attribute query that will achive this?

    Thanks
    Hanlie

    Thanks for the reply, but this won't match, for example

    67 ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA to 67A ALFRED ST, ONEHUNGA

    as I want it to.

    So, basically I want the match to ignore letters that are added to the numbers and just match on the number.
