AO Large Word Adjustment


AO Large Word Adjustment is designed to reduce the importance of large words (such as "Communications" or "Technologies") when matching company names. It is commonly used as a temporary standardization value when comparing company names in a very broad area. Any word larger than a user-defined size will have all vowels (after the first letter) removed to shrink the word so it is less important to the matching process. You may optionally define an input of values which should not be adjusted.
