SAS approximate string matching, fuzzy search

Hi,

I have two text files A.txt & B.txt

A.txt has 100 observations
B.txt has 200 observations

For every observation in A, I need it to look through every observation in B and return the closest match based on the complev function.

Is there a simple way to do this?

I would create a 2x(100x200) data set with proc sql, and run the complev function, and output the max value by group.
