Overview
Flookup uses fuzzy matching to power data cleaning in Google Sheets. Flookup is perfect for handling diverse kinds of datasets, even those that contain text with partial matches, typos or spelling variations.

A Brief Overview of Flookup Functions:
1. FLOOKUP, QLOOKUP and MLOOKUP: Merge data or match text in vertically structured data, based on percentage similarity. Matches for each lookup value are ranked in order of descending percentage similarity.
2. HFLOOKUP: Merge data or match text in horizontally structured data, based on percentage similarity. Matches for each lookup value are ranked in order of descending percentage similarity.
3. SOUNDMATCH: Match text based on sound similarity (REFINED SOUNDEX) in vertically structured data. Matches for each lookup value are ranked in alphabetical order (A-Z).
4. FUZZYMATCH: Calculate the percentage similarity between two text entries. It can also calculate the percentage similarity between concatenated text entries.
5. ULIST: Extract unique values from a specified range based on percentage similarity.
6. NORMALIZE: Remove diacritical marks, punctuation marks or stop words from any text. This is especially useful if applied before using any of the functions mentioned above.

************************

Additional Functions:
1. Highlight duplicates based on percentage or sound similarity.
2. Remove duplicates based on percentage or sound similarity.

Common Flookup Use-cases:
1. Email Campaigns: Clean your email list by removing duplicates and out-of-use or invalid email addresses.
2. Database Standardisation: Ensure that your records are up-to-date and consistent by comparing and linking data across disparate sources.
3. Database Scrubbing: Fix database errors like spelling mistakes, missing or duplicate entries and formatting differences.
4. Website Redirect Mapping: Reduce the manual work involved in mapping redirects for 404 and site migration cases, thereby improving your SEO strategy.
5. Fraud Detection: Discover and remove data that exists in more that one database when it should not, even with "disguised" spelling differences.

Great Add-on. It's surprising how it decides to match things sometimes, but it's helped take a project form completely manual to mostly automated. So thank you for your work on this. I've been using it for a few months now and still really like it. The only problem is the ERROR it throws when it's been called too many times. Is there a way to add a pause in there or some kind of setting to control the speed?

Didn't work. Tool complained about not having a subscription. Entered paypal details twice (once using an account, second just via credit card). A waste of ~1 hour. Was really hoping this would be faster than implementing my own solution using levenshtein distance, but guess I'll have to do it myself.

Flookup has met my business requirements for a long time. The fuzzy matching works very well, is easy to incorporate into Google Sheets workflows, and doesn't use too much CPU power. Communication with the Flookup team has always been easy and professional. I can't recommend them enough!

I'm trying to get set up. Google says "Updated add-on A script attached to this document needs your permission to run." However when I try to accept it says "Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app. This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In." How to proceed? Also how to pay, your website pricing page doesn't work...
