    For either a Power Query function or a new DAX function, we could use a fuzzy string compare to provide a score like 1 to 10 of the similarity of a string. I believe that SSIS has some functionality like this. For example we often has Company Names that we need to match to an external source and would like to get a score to compare names like "Wal-Mart", "WalMart","Wal*Mart", "Division or Wal*Mart", "Wal-Mart Stroes", etc. Does anyone else need this type of compare - or found a simple way to do it in Power Query?
