Custom function for import error correction

Post

     Here's an idea for a function in FileMaker: when you're importing names that might have slight spelling differences with the already existing ones, one might want to create a function that would compare an imported name and surname with all the available, correct ones. Then it would enter the closest match from the database at a cut off: i.e. 80% to 100% similar. 
      
     Does that ring a bell to anyone?
      
     Do you guys think that would be a worthwhile function?
