I spoke to a fellow developer here at my client's site who listened concernedly, but he has no direct input to fixing the issue and I am not sure who does. I am told to only do what I am told, not to talk to anyone who has nothing to do with my specific assignments, so I know that the issue will never be resolved. If I make any waves, I would probably here something like this: "Hey, we've done it like this for 30 years, so why are you the only one complaining?"

It is clearly a system design issue. NOT AT ALL technical issue of finding a command that can reliably read similarities. Forget Artificial Intelligence. I think ordinary intelligence in system design is what actually needed

Great point, David. You are exactly right. They are using VB 6.0.
