Sample data //table 1
id companyName 1 Company Name 2 Nicely Formated Company Names
Sample data //table 2
id companyName Company Name Company Name/235 Nicely Formated Company Names/1242 Ncly Formated Company Nms
Need to be able to run through for each record on table 2 and do a regex search or equivelant to see if it can find a mtach on contact table. table 2s company name will havae mutliple entires for each and be formated differently, and cannot be normalized to match with table 1.
I have an idea of how I might do a foreach loop through php to insert and update a new foreign key to table 2, however I need to use access / excel / vba
I’ve got about 100-150 entries on table 1 while table 2 might have 2k and is quite hectic.
