Today I made a thematic map by joining a list of data that had country names to 
a shape file of world countries. I had to spend a lot of time working in Excel 
to make my data names match the names in the shape file. A lot of them already 
matched but there were many that didn’t. For example the the shape file had 
Ivory Coast and the data had Cte d’Ivoire as the name. Is there any way to do 
this in Qgis instead of Excel? Years ago I recall doing this in ArcMap. There 
was a tool that matched up the data where it could and then for each record 
that wasn’t matched you could choose the matching record manually. Any help 
would be greatly appreciated.
