Hi,   

  Before I reinvent the wheel I wanted to kindly ask you for your opinion if there is a simple way to do it.   

  I want to merge a larger number of tables from different data sources in R and the matching criterium are country names. The tables are of different size and sometimes the country names do differ slightly.   

  Has anyone done this or any recommendation on what commands I should look at to automize this task as much as possible?   

  Thanks a lot for your effort in advance.   

  All the best,
    Werner
