Fuzzy won't allow you to match a phrase with a single word. The fuzzy operator works at the word level, which means "fuzzy(Le Coq)" will search for a phrase consisting of a fuzzy match of "Le" followed by a fuzzy match of "Coq". Assuming "Le" is not a stopword, this can never match "Lecoq".1 person found this helpful
If "Le" is a stopword, which it would be if you're working in a French environment, then things get a bit fuzzier (sorry).
In this case I think "le" would get removed, it would then just depend on whether fuzzy of "Coq" matches "Lecoq" which it almost certainly doesn't (because the first characters are very important in a fuzzy match).
Name search in 11.2 is the only operator which deals with segmentation, and can match fragments with or without spaces between them. As you're not working in 11.2, your only choice is to pre-process the data to remove spaces.
Ok, thank you very much.
The 'Le' is not in the list of the stop words because their are many french names that can begin with 'Le'
I'm in 10.2 ...so i will pre-process the data in my package.
