Delete Duplicate Rows Based On Cell/column Values?

Oct 28, 2009

I have a excel file which contains dublicate rows. The duplicate rows can be identified based on few cell/column values. I need a macro to delete the duplicate rows when the below condition is satisfied: let us consider row 5 and row 6:

If column 7,12,13,16,17,18,19,23,24,27,28,29,30 in row 5 = row 6 then row 6 has to be deleted. This condition has to be followed for all other rows in the excel used range. Have attached the sample workbook.

Find If Duplicate Values Exist In A Column, Concatenate Cells And Then Delete

Dec 17, 2009

I want to do, is search column A for claim numbers that match. When I do have a matching claim number, I want to concatenate the original cells ownership field with the said matching cells ownership field (or move into a column in the same row, I can always concatenate later). Once that is complete, I want to delete the row I took the information out of.

I want to join this data in ArcGIS, but as of right now, it's not a 1-to-1 relationship, so only a relate works. That doesn't help me as I want to display claims by ownership, and this can vary per claim. Company A may have 100% on one claim, and then split another claim 50% with Company B.

This causes a double entry on the claim field in this current spreadsheet I have, which requires me to clean it up by making multiple columns of ownership vs. an additional row for shared ownership.

My problem:

Column A Column B
1235555 Company A (50%)
1235555 Company B (50%)
1235556 Company A (100%)
1235557 Company A (33%)
1235557 Company B (33%)
1235557 Company C (33%)

What I would like to see

Column A Column B Column C Column D
1235555 Company A (50%) Company B (50%)
1235556 Company A (100%)
1235557 Company A (33%) Company B (33%) Company C (33%)

Sum Duplicate Values Then Delete Duplicate Rows

Jan 5, 2004

I have 4 columns in my spreadsheet. I am trying to find any duplicates that may exist in Col A, sum values in Col D, then delete the entire row. So far my sheet before I run my vba code is this.

I have some code but I still need to do a considerable amount of tweaking to it. Currently my code is only deleting the duplicate values in Col A. I am having difficulty summing the values in Col D as well as deleting the entire row.

Here is my code thus far....

-------
Public Sub FindDuplicates()

Delete Duplicate Values In A Row

Nov 27, 2007

I have a list of about 1,000 rows with multiple columns. Each row represents a unique person and the columns represent codes that were assigned to them. I have merged two sets of codes together to create this list, so some people (rows) may have duplicate codes. I would like to be able to delete all duplicate values from each individual person (row) so any given code only shows up once for a person.

Delete Rows With Duplicate Values

May 1, 2006

I have a spreadsheet with three colums of data. The first column contains
records which have occasional phone number duplication- see blelow:

(555) 000-0000DataA1ValueA1
(555) 000-0000DataA2ValueA2
(555) 555-9770DataA3ValueA3
(555) 555-4464DataA4ValueA4
(555) 555-4464DataA5ValueA5
(555) 555-4720DataA6ValueA6
(555) 555-8823DataA7ValueA7
(555) 555-3834DataA8ValueA8
(555) 555-4125DataA9ValueA9

What I need to do is (somehwhat) automate the process of filtering or
deleting out all rows which have duplicate data in the first column, but not
second or third columns. I'm sure it's been done...I tried the Excel
out-of-the-box.

Macro To Delete Duplicate Values But Keep Last One?

Dec 21, 2012

I am looking for some VBA code that will look through a column and delete all but the last duplicate value. The rows are not to be deleted. The duplicate also may not be consecutive (i.e they may appear in rows 2, 3 and 72 - the one in 72 would need keeping).

I did find the following macro which seemed to do the job until I realised it wasn't working if the values weren't consecutive.

Code:
Sub Dupe_Killer_Keep_Last()
Dim lrow As Long
Application.Calculation = xlCalculateManual

Delete Row If There Is Duplicate Number In Same Column

Mar 14, 2014

I understand filtering will accomplish this but a macro would save time.

My data is in Column "B" that contains ID#. If there is a duplicate ID# in column B, delete the row, but keep one. In addition, I do not want to delete blank cells in Column "B" and non number data.

Delete Duplicate Row Under Multiple Column

Oct 14, 2011

How do i delete duplicate row?

This is a sample of how my spreadsheet looks like. i want to check for duplicates under cell B:F. delete if duplicate. to like this: ( i know that in the second 4007 repair, there are some data similar to the first 4007 repair. but lets assume the data is different. Cause i cant change it now.)

cell A consist of my header and should not be shifted. i do not want a result like this,

The data should look like the original except the duplicates are deleted.

The macro should check until the row Period_name. that is anything after period name should not be deleted. Also i want Period_name row to be position under the leftover data. like this:

Select Column And Delete Row Where Data Is Duplicate

Nov 17, 2006

I've got this macro which works well, but I have to edit it to change the column I want to check for dupes. I don't mind doing that, but now I have to share the macro with someone who is not comfortable changing the references in the code every time they run it.

As it is it checks column G:G (7) for dupes and deletes the row. Good.
I'd like for it to do the same thing, but for whatever column the active cell is in.

I can use this:
Col = ActiveCell.Column
in place of the "7" in the With Range part
but I don't know how to replace the "G1:G".

Delete Duplicate Rows Based On 1 Column

Jun 12, 2008

creating a macro for an excel spreadsheet? The problem I am faced with is I need to reduce a xls file from a ticketing system at work that contains roughly 50,000 rows.

What I need to have done is reduce a Site Code column (column B) so that for each ticket entry there is only one occurrence of each user that worked on that ticket.What the macro should do is to look through column B and remove any duplicate rows for the same ticket number located in column A. once the macro gets to the next ticket number in column A I need it to start over on the duplicate check for column B.

I have a attached a xls file to this post to try and show what it is i am working on.

Delete Duplicate Rows Using Data In Column A As Criteria

Jan 13, 2009

I have a spreadsheet that has thousands of rows of data with maybe 6 columns.

I would like to remove the duplicate rows but the problem I am facing is that I would like to use column A as the criteria.

There are some duplicates in column A but the issue is that the data in column B, C, D, etc may not be the same for each duplicate.

Easier to see in this image:
http://img127.imageshack.us/img127/6364/datajv6.jpg

So A1 is the same as A6
A1 has data in B1 and C1, no data in D1
A6 has data in B1, C1 and D1

I need to delete either row A1 or row A6, it is irrelevant which row it is but one of them has to go.

Find Range And Delete Duplicate Value In Specified Column With VB Macro

Apr 21, 2009

See attached doc "Find and Delete.xlsx". Inside, the value in F12 is a very important cell. Using the text value from F12, I first want to use visual basic code to find the range in column B because it will vary. This means the 'text words' column might have 50 words or it might have 2000. I have racked my brain trying to find a universal way to find a variable range.

Then I would like to search for the exact text value within this range in column
B. For example, in F12 is the text word 'windows xp registry cleaner' and you can see that this value is in B9. There will only be one exact match in column B.

I then would like the vb script to delete and remove this found value, then move left one space in column A to also delete the ID number associated with the text word. Then shift both rows up to fill the empty gap. I have tried numerous different codes but to be honest, I'm not really sure what I'm looking for. I've tinkered with find and replace, vlookup, match, find, search, and many more.

Macro To Delete An Entire Row If A Duplicate Entry Appears Only In A Certain Column.

Feb 20, 2009

Is there a macro to delete an entire row if a duplicate entry appears only in a certain column.

1. Look for the column header with the name "File Number"
2. Anytime the same number under the "File Number" column appears more than once in that column, keep the row that contains first occurrence of that number buy delete the entire row anytime that number is repeated in another row in that same column.

This is regardless of what is contained in the other columns. For example..let's say these cells contained this data...

B1 - UTE00225
B2 - UTE00546
B3 - UTE65513
B4 - UTE00225
B5 - UTE00225

In this case, I would want to keep rows 1, 2, and 3. But, I would want to delete rows 4 & 5 because the number "UTE00225" has already appeared first in B1. I'm using Excel 2003.

Highlight Duplicate Values In A Single Column

Mar 6, 2013

I created a spreadsheet for use by the shipping department where I work. We are trying to prevent pulling and shipping the incorrect item to the customer. This is how it works. The employee downloads a CSV file containing items that have been purchased from our website and imports the file into the excel. Then the item is pulled and the employee scans the item's barcode into the spreadsheet named "SCAN." Formulas and code on the "reference" sheet look for the SKU number in the list from the CSV file while others create a consolidated list of SKUs that have been scanned, SKUs that have a problem and need to go to customer service, and SKUs from the CSV file that have yet to be scanned. Some of the formulas in this workbook have been borrowed from forums like this and altered to fit my needs - I'll admit I'm not even entirely sure how they work.

Occasionally a SKU is scanned in twice and not always sequentially which will effect the total item count. It can be very difficult to find the duplicates in the list.

I would like for any value that appears more than once in column B of the 'SCAN' sheet to be highlighted. I have tried to do this, but to no avail.

Scan Below
FWD: CS?
If FWD: CS, state reason below:

NOT SCANNED

Duplicate Values Per Column With Various Row Ranges For Many Columns

Dec 13, 2013

I have a challenge related to a excel sheet we are using for personnel planning.

Vertically we have several projects with action items listed row by row in the following format:

- Project 1 xxxxxx
Project management
Project Engineering
Workshop
Shipping
Etc.
- Project 2 xxxxxx
Project management
Project Engineering
Workshop
Shipping
Etc.

Horisontaly on the columns we have dates, day by day for a year +

For each day we chose from a drop down who is assigned to the action item. The problem is when there are 30-40 + projects and each have 20-30 lines of ation items it is hard to get the overview and avoid double entry. I would use conditional formating to do this, but firstly each project is separated by a line containing different formulas and I would not like the conditional formation to change these cells, and at the same time to put this up manually for each row would take a long time since there are 365 + rows.

how a VBA code could solve this little challenge? IT would also be beneficial to have it do the check upon cell change, that way we would not need to manually run the VBA to check.

Removing Duplicate Values From Column - Case Sensitive

May 22, 2013

Suppose I have some data in a column like below

Blue
Red
Green
green
red
RED
BLUE

I need a macro or excel formula so that it will remove duplicate products- case sensitive(removing all duplicate prod using using excel,that i know.) i.e. it should not consider Blue BLUE as duplicate. only consider Blue Blue as duplicate.

So the macro should work same as data -> remove duplicate function already exists in excel, except it will be case sensitive..
