Finding String in List

Is there anything similar to ug_FindNumberInList for strings?

 

I'm currently using NX11 and I'd like to be able to pull data from lists that are driven by a master list based on component numbers.  Only problem is that our components have both letters and numbers and therefore are strings.

 

The only thing I can think to do for now is possibly truncate the letters out and convert the remaining numbers to actual numbers.  However, there's always the possibility that we get like numbers as the truncated letters would have been what differentiated them.

 

example:

{"AB123" , "CD456" , "EF123" , etc}

 

Any help is appreciated
