How to match records stored within an array?

I have an array variable with undeclared number of elements.  I read values from a database into the array, can be any number of elements.

I now loop through the database looking for a match on these elements.  The problem is that from a known total population of possible values, any record can have any number of the elements, in any order.

How do I do the comparison?
