Matching partial data between tables

Hi All

I'm trying to join two tables where I have a requirement to join using more than just the one common field.

Given the following two example tables:



    hostname, key

    batman, abc

    robin, abb

    orca, abd

    elephant, abe




    hostname, data

    batman, 123def8

    robin, /poi/abb89

    orca, 898:abdxxx

    giraffe, poid09a


What I need to do is look for the value in key in the keytable table in the data column in moredata.

So given the above examples I would create a link between robin in both tables and orca in both.

Any ideas? What I sort of need to do is like a substringcount check between fields in different tables for

all possible values in keytable against moredata.

Many Thanks
