I have not used it, but oracle has a thing called "Oracle Text", I would assume it has routines to assist in this sort of task.

I assume you could load all your data, and then as a second pass (so to speak) for each row of data, do the appropriate fuzzy search against the loaded data to find which other entries were similar. Received on Mon Aug 18 2008 - 20:22:30 CEST
