Hi all,

Quite a simple on really, just gave it 500 for quick response.

I'm after a Oracle SQL command such as the following:

select *
from table1
where IGNORE CASE (field1 != field2);

select *
from table1
where lower(field1) != lower(field2);

Depending on the size of the table you might need to look at a function based index.
