The function returns an integer between 0 and 100 representing the similarity between the two strings. The result can be interpreted
as the percentage of characters matched between the two strings. A value of 100 indicates that the two strings are identical.
This function can be used to correct a list of names (such as customers). Some customers may have been added to the list more
than once with slightly different names. You can use the SIMILAR function to find similar customer names by joining the customer
table to itself, producing a report of all similarities greater than 90 percent, but less than 100 percent.
The calculation performed for the SIMILAR function is more complex than just the number of characters that match.
