Loop till you find a string in a file <-- Need Help New to Unix Scripting

Guys - I am new to Unix scripting and am in need for a script that does the following. I have bits and pieces created and tested but i am just having a little difficult time getting it all together.

- Loop through till it finds a string in a specific file.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Mus
