Declaration:function ColumnIndex (Head: string; PartialMatch: boolean): longint;

The function ColumnIndex returns the index of the column of which the header matches the parameter Head. If the parameter PartialMatch is TRUE a match occurs if the Head is a substring of the column header, otherwise the Head  parameter has to be equal to the column header. The match is not case sensitive. If no column can be found, a value of -1 is returned (valid range: -1, 1..NrOfColumns ).

Hint: If there are several columns having the same header, the index of the last matching column (highest column number) is returned.
