comment Use Excel to calculate similarity between two strings
@Excell, just so everyone is perfectly clear, this is NOT a duplicate. And still, nobody has answered or even touched on a real solution to the actual question: comparing two defined strings for % of similarity. NOT looking for a fuzzy match to an entry inside a SET of data.

comment Zeroed memory vs. free memory - increasing free memory
What really needs to happen here is for Intuit to finally get their stuff together and release a 64-bit version of the program for crying out loud. BTW, my solution to the "Out of Memory" error ended up being a simple one: stick a C battery sideways on the enter key until the process completes.

Different, because that post covers a lookup query. This covers comparison between two predefined strings.

comment Use Excel to calculate similarity between two strings
@MikeHoney I've been using Fuzzy Lookup like a vlookup, less than perfect match, but more perfect than Excel defines by default... is there a way to use Fuzzy Lookup to calculate the difference between two specifically defined strings, rather than two columns? My intent is to perform the calculation, then sort the rows by greatest to least similarity, in an effort to support the the act of eyeballing 400-500 records at a shot.

It is fuzzy logic, but fuzzy lookup is not the solution unless I'm unaware of how to use it properly.

Yes, they are correct. Posting an update now with some Fiddler debug info. Not sure what I'm looking at, though.

Added detail, difference in hardware profile for differing Windows installs.

While this doesn't solve my problem, it does confirm that the memory is in fact free, and the limitation is based in hard-coded application-level caching with QuickBooks. I've taken this up with Intuit more times than I can count. Time to try again :) Thanks for the tip!

Not pertinent to the question, but it's fully custom. PCIe solid-state drives, the whole nine yards. Unfortunately it still doesn't help get around the application-level hard-coded caching limitations in certain cases, this one a prime example.
