Matching only parts of two cell arrays

A= {'36450A107';'36467A107';'38067A107'}
How can I find that the 2nd cell in A matches the first 6 characters of B?

for i = 1:length(A)
TF = findstr(char(B(1)),char(A(i)))
if(TF == 1)

this is not correct I tried it and it gave TF = 1 and 2 . I think you misunderstood the question. I want to find where the 1st 6 characters in A matches B . the 1st row definitely doesn't match nor the 3rd. the only row that matches is the 2nd one.
