    Identical names List

    I have a table as follows:

    row name x y
    -------------------------------------
    1 abc and co 9 5
    2 xyz est 3 2

    3 queen hotel 2 9
    4 abc & co 9 5
    5 king's company 4 2
    6 xyz establishment 3 2

    As you can see in the table, row 1 and 4 are similar, but for some spelling difference and so are row 2 and 6.

    I want to write a script which will give me list of such names whose names are almost identical and have same x and y values. Any hlep?

    Hi

    SQL> select t1.row_num,t1.col1,t2.col1,t2.row_num
    2 from agsimani t1, agsimani t2
    3 where
    4 soundex(t1.col1) = soundex(hardcode)
    5 and
    6 t1.row_num<>t2.row_num
    7 /

    so soundex is not the solution...
