    Hey folks,

    1st list with 20.000 entries: http://prntscr.com/8dkgup
    2nd list with 4.000 entries: http://prntscr.com/8dkh2f

    Basically I need to add the additional values from list 1 added to the row on list 2 if it matches.
    Problem is, there are additional words on list 1 or 2, so there are very few exact matches.

    Algorithm which can be used: Levenshtein distance https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levenshtein_distance

    Workaround:
    - Make a small tool i.e. with PHP which when you click the first entry from list 2, it shows all matches from list 1 based on your algorithm. Now an data-entry guy can select the correct one if it's available. Otherwise he can skip.

    If a match was selected, the additional rows are added to the corresponding product from list 2. (i.e. in a DB).

    If interested PM me costs, turnaround time (asap :) ) , Email/Skype and how you plan to do it.

    Thanks,
    Albaniax
