Is there an SSIS transform available that would help with this issue? I've reviewed fuzzy lookup and term extract, but don't think they will get to where I'm trying to go.
Table1 - raw data with several columns. The specific column that I'm working with is called Item_Keyword. The specific data entries for this column vary depending on data entry personnel and clinic.
For example: the Item_Keyword column may have entries like simplex, palacos osteobond, and cobalt. I know these to all be essentially the same as Bone Cement.
I want to update a new column in Table1 based on a lookup versus a Categorization_table which has 2 columns: KeyWord and Category.
For example: The Bone Cement category would have 4 rows in the Categorization_table.
simplex Bone Cement
palacos Bone Cement
osteobond Bone Cement
cobalt Bone Cement
I have 23 distinct categories at this time.
