This article briefly describes a sample application where the normal SAS merge or SQL join would fail to provide the kind of results needed or hoped for. By using a set of SAS functions, custom programs and macros, and simple scoring techniques and common sense, the author developed a working model that matches two unlinked files that contain no common keys. The fuzzy matching process developed entailed over 1500 hours of development, testing, and revisions after being applied to several different projects and assignments.
