0895556978 20040204113736 00000000000205 90
0895556978 20040204113725 00000000000210 104
0895556978 20040204114948 00000000000040 106
0895556978 20040204115001 00000000000039 35 106
0895556978 20040204113736 00000000000205 90 104
as you can see field1 will always match, but since it is not unique we can't
just match off that.
the combination of field1 and approximations of field2 and 3 can be
considered unique though.
field4 will always vary and is just data that we need to add at the end of
the line as 2 fields.
the length of field1 can vary too but it's match will always be the same
