I have extracted the header using "Header Text Data Bank", in that environment specific values are there.

So i used diff tool to validate against my expected string. On failure used ignore differences, now anything that comes in header is passing the test case.

Any suggestions?

Note: In that response header text 1st 15 characters are fixed, others are ignorable

    The Diff tool's text differ has an option to use regular expressions in the control source. Look for "Regular Expression" on the Options tab. This way your control source could contain the 15 characters you expect followed by .* (or something).
