Hello,

You should be able to download the Fuzzy Lookup add-in from the link below

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15011
I should clarify-Im not allowed to download,meaning my office rules don't permit a add in.
Alright. That's a different case.. But, if you need the add-in on your personal system, you can always download it.

Finally, if the Fuzzy Lookup is essential to what you need to perform your job, why not speak to to the IT department in your office and explain the need for you to be allowed to download the add-in ?

Cheers
Sure,but is there an alternative ?
Like a piece of code,that can help achieve the same result?

@Akshay02350 

If with Excel, that's only add-in or Power Query functionality for Office365. Perhaps you may find and purchase another third-party tool, but that also will be add-in.

 

Otherwise Power BI Desktop, it's free. 

No code can perform that... The add-in has to be downloaded and installed to perform Fuzzy matching.

Cheers
