Concatenate search strings (Join Together)

Is there a known way/mod/extension to concatenate a search string.

Example. Customer searches a part number which has spaces or dashes in it. e.g. 123 456 or 123-456 or 12 34-56 etc

I'd like to force this to always be treated as 123456 by OC when the customer hits search. Makes it much easier to 'tag' the products without having to cover all bases.

Supplier part numbers are a nuisance, and many of ours come with gaps and dashes. The gaps are the biggest issue as we never know if a customer will type them or not. If I can strip the gaps I can live with the dashes, but it'd be nice to get rid of them all. One of our competitors already does this, but of course is not using OC.

Thanks
