How Flookup Works

Flookup is a lightweight data cleaning add-on for Google Sheets. It uses fuzzy matching to power the following tasks regardless of spelling differences, partial matches or textual errors in your data:

    • Remove duplicates.

    • Highlight duplicates.

    • Fuzzy lookup or merge data (a.k.a record linkage).

    • Extract unique values from fuzzy duplicates.

    • Calculate percentage similarities between text entries.

    • Remove unwanted words, punctuation marks and diacritical marks.

Flookup functions are not affected by the sort order of the data or the letter case of the text therein.

In conclusion, Flookup will not only help you improve efficiency, reduce your error rate and increase productivity, but it will also help you save revenue.
