We have input ist A. --> containing a couple of text items
We have list B --> containing a list of all possible text combinations (present in A)
I would like to find the ‘same’ characters --> list A–>list B
secondly I would like to retrieve the index, of the item in list B;
So for example:
List A List B = index wanted list C
FC --> FC = index 1. 1
G --> G = index 10. 10
B --> B = index 5. 5

Thank you for your answer.
It does exactly what I asked to do :).
Unfortunately I came to the conclusion that there are also ‘other’ situations possible whereby this will not do the trick;
It is in fact possible that the part I want to replace is only a small part of a bigger piece of text.
This while I would like to ‘only’ and directly replace that part;
So for instance;
FD -> 0
FC to C -> 1 to 6
FA,G -> 3,10
so ‘only’ replace all the text which is present in List B, but keep all the other ‘text’.
I found a piece of python script which does the thing correctly for ‘single’ Letters A-Z, but unfortunately not for combined letters like FD.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you in advance

maybe we only have to make a small python script adjustment?
