First of all, we have to establish one thing here: Any function (internal or your function -- doesn't matter which) always have to load the list of files and read the name of each one.
So, I advise you to create a function working with a listbox to load the whole directory list and use the Pos ( string1, string2 {, start } ) to find the string.

String ls_filespec, ls_nm
Integer li_total, li_counter

ls_filespec = "*.*"
lb_files.DirList(ls_filespec, 0)
li_total = lb_files.totalitems()
FOR li_counter = 1 to li_total
      ls_nm = Mid(lb_arquivos.text(li_counter , 2, 3)
        if Pos ( ls_nm, "word you want") <> 0 then       ddlb_match.AddItem(ls_nm)
NEXT
