Duplicate Handling

When duplicate records are found there is a prompt providing options for handling the duplicate values:

Use case-sensitive comparisons — specifies whether or not text comparisons are case sensitive or not. Check this option to enable. By default comparisons are not case sensitive.

Ignore whitespace when looking for matches— specifies whether or not whitespace (i.e. spaces and tabs) should be ignored when looking for matches to join on. Check this option to ignore whitespace. By default whitespace is considered.
