Overview
Flookup [Fuzzy Lookup] uses the discipline of 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.
