You're likely a better developer than I am, but I breezed past something in the Python Docs the other day that might offer some ideas...

Maybe get_close_match es() in difflib as an example?

I really haven't taken a close look at it, but you might find some of the logic worth looking at.

Best regards,

Here's the issue: I have roughly 20 MS excel spreadsheets, each row contains a record. These records were hand entered by people in call centers. The problem is, there can and are duplicate phone numbers, and emails and addresses even person names. I need to sift through all this data (roughly 300,000+ records and use fuzzy logic to break it down, so that i have only unique records.

I was wondering if there is a...
