The join tool currently does not allow case-insensitive joins, but the find/replace tool does. Additionally- even if both sides are identical, the join tool will not join "Sean's house" to "Sean's house" because of the non-letter character in the middle. Finally - if one side is a string(2), and the other is a vString(200) - even if you have a single identical character on both sides you get uncertain outcomes unless you force the type
Please could you consider amending the join tool to include 3 new options or capabilities:
- Case insensitive join
- Allow full Unicode character set in join
- Full match across text types (irrespective of string size) - this would allow a string(2) value to match to a string(100) value as long as the string(100) value only has the same 2 characters in it as the string(2) value
That would remove a load of work from every text-join that's being done on every canvas we do.
