10: Fuzzy Duplicate Finder for Microsoft Excel
I'm often asked for easy ways to clean up Excel data, and I've finally found something I can recommend. Fuzzy Duplicate Finder works with Excel versions 2000 through 2007. It helps you find all those fuzzy duplicates -- those mistakes that don't always show up as mistakes. It'll also find typos and misspelled words in your Excel workbooks and help you handle what it finds. It's a neat and useful tool.
