Simple yet functional looks
The application features a relatively basic user interface, yet it is sufficiently practical and approachable that even less knowledgeable individuals can work with it successfully from the first run.
The main window of FuzzyCruce allows you to load the source files, displaying each one’s ‘Table List’, ‘Fields’ and ‘History’, so you can click on the one you want to operate in.
Swiftly dedupe database tables or merge together fields
The program supports several different file formats, namely ACCDB, XLS, CSV and XLSX, enabling you to easily clean up your tables, regardless of the file type you store them in. You can load multiple files simultaneously, including of different extensions.
By clicking on the records in the ‘Table List’ or the ’Fields’, you can view the contents of each entry, thanks to the ‘Display’ button, which reveals the table in a dedicated panel.
From the ‘Remove’ tab you can choose an item you want to cleanse and establish the ‘Threshold’ and ‘Conditions’ for the operation, as well as the ‘Output Fields’, after which you can press on the ‘Query’ button for the task to be executed.
Similarly, the ‘Join’ section of FuzzyCruce lets you select the two items you want to merge from the drop-down menus and pick the corresponding fields for each one, then enter the ‘Threshold’ and establish the ‘Output Fields’. After pressing the ‘Join’ button, your results are displayed in the side panel.
A useful tool for data table cleanup tasks
To summarize, FuzzyCruce is a handy and effective database cleansing instrument whose main purpose consists of helping you get your data tables in better shape by removing duplicates or combining the contents of various fields.
