DeFactos,

A simple If structure will do it: ;)

$sText_1 =  "12:04 Hey how's it going???" & @CRLF & _
            "12:05 Fine thanks. You???"

$sText_2 = "thanks."

If $sText_1 = $sText_2 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Result", "They match!")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Result", "They do NOT match!")
EndIf

Or is that too simple an answer? :)

Maybe this function, http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/StringCompare.htm, or this function, http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/StringInStr.htm, helps to do what you want. Your post isn't exactly clear about what you do want though.

Oh I see, you'll probably want to use the StringInStr function then.
