As is described in the comment before method body, the parameter of the method, toMatch, is the record number field. But there is no such thing as a "record number" field (1, 2, ...24) in the database record. The first field in a record is the "Fright Number" field, which has the value of "SA001", "PA008", "RA981" ...
What is wrong with my thinking?

What about the "implied" Record Number? 1st record is #1, 2nd is #2 etc?
BTW Orcale has several similar concepts. One is ROWNUM of the results on a cursor.
