I need to match a given input string to a set of strings without considering the case of the characters of the input string.Like if the set of string is ('jan','feb','mar','apr') then all of the following input string should be acceptable 'Jan','FEb','MAR','aPR','apR' after comparision with
the set of string. So is this possible with any built-in function or otherwise?

If you would have searched this forum you would have found many hits describing this same problem.
The simplest option is to use upper() on both sides of the equation.
