If this query is for the XML gateway, you should direct your enquiry to the XML forum (http://xmlforum.aws.chdev.org/)
There was an issue with name search on the XML gateway that was corrected on Friday 11th Dec approx 17:18hrs.
Please re-try your queries and post any further queries to http://xmlforum.aws.chdev.org

On the matter of
O’neal UK Limited
to be considered the ‘same as’
1 ALS LIMITED

This is because the algorithm used to check removes all words like ‘UK’, ‘limited’, and punctuation, then turns ‘1’ into ‘one’ and also ignores any plurals. This makes them both look like ONEAL, thus are considered same as.
You can still attempt to incorporate companies that show as ‘same as’ but your submission will be examined using a more complex algorithm, and if (like this one) is clearly not the same, it will be allowed as a name.
Hope this helps.
