Not quite sure what you're trying to parse out (or why Mike would have 2 incidents)? You might want to look into the String Functions in the F1-help in QV.

In script, you can use function called "Left"

e.g. In 1 table, Customer name = Mike Freeman xyz

      In 2 table, Customer name = Mike Freeman

In script, fetch these customers with function

                         Left(Customer,5) as Customer,

This 5 indicates first 5 alphabets of Customer name.

Since, you will apply this for both tables, same name will get captured in QV while loading.

I hope this can serve purpose.

If not, please share sample data, Excel & QV.
