Establishing Duplicate Entries - Highlighting Them Then Deleting
Apr 17, 2014
I have a spreadsheet with thousands rows of items on. I am trying to identify duplicate entries based on two or three cells within each row. If those two or three cells are duplicated for that particular ID then the duplicate entry (row) should be highlighted for deletion.
Better still it would be great if there was a macro or formula which would delete that duplicate row.
So for example on the spreadsheet I have attached, I would like rows 6 and 9 deleted or highlighted as the criteria for deletion is a duplication of the entry in the 'YEAR' column AND the 'VALUE' column for the REFERENCEs AB-1234 and AB-9876 which are the unique identifiers for each individual case.
This would leave the end result as per the table below on the attached spreadsheet.
I would like to check column B and if any of these values match values in column J hightlight the cell on the same row as the match on column E green. I don't know much about excel but this would be a tremendous help because i'm looking through quite a bit of data. I've tried using conditional formatting and i can't seem to get that to work for my needs. Let me know if you need anymore information.
I have 13 sheets of data in my open workbook. Column D, which includes blank cells at times, across each of these sheets maps the same info. of orders. However, I know there are several duplicates, and I want to clean them out. I am trying to figure out a way to highlight all the duplicates that appear only in column D beginning with sheet 4 and ending with sheet 13. I will leave the duplicates that appear on Sheets 5-13 alone, but I want to have them highlighted, so I can review the ones that appear on sheet 4 first, and then delete them.
I need to highlight all the duplicate IP-addresses in my sheet except the first one.
What I did:
I chose the range (F column) -> Conditional formatting -> Highlight cell rules -> Duplicate Values. It highlighted all the duplicate values so i googled how to highlight the duplicate values except the first one so I came across a formula =COUNTIF($F$2:$F2, F2)>1
So I added the formula and now it does not highlight the first duplicate but only the second and not the third and fourth and so on.
What am I doing wrong?
Edit: I have sorted them in order and in one IP-address I have 6 duplicates but it highlights only the last one when I want it to highlight all of them except the first one.
I have a set template for 3 sheets. I copy/paste data into all three sheets within the template. Some data are repeated twice within the 3 sheets. How can I highlight the duplicate data between these sheets?
I have two columns that is use to record last name first name. I need a macro that will find matching names in the columns. i have found some examples for searching one column but have not had any luck finding someway to do 2 columns. in the example below i need it to find and highlight The names Smith John.
I am trying to set up a workbook for work that will highlight duplicates. I know how to use conditional formatting to do this, however, I would like each duplicate "set" to be a different color in order to better identify. The area that I need to search for duplicates is E3:E27. How can this be accomplished?
I want to write a macro that highlights duplicate values within a single column. I found - on this site a macro that removes duplicate values, which is huge, but sometimes I just need to highlight duplicates values rather than remove them.
I have a large compilation of data on an excel work sheet (I am using 2013). All cells relate to each other by means of dates, names, and other numeric values such as stock numbers, id numbers etc... In one column some stock numbers are repeated. I would like to know if there is a way to set up the program on this worksheet to highlight all repeating stock numbers, not only in the column but across the cells as well, in lieu of doing so manually.
The following code works fine if the data is grouped (not necessarily sorted) by column B (but not necessarily by column A), this code will delete the duplicates rows, but retaining the latest entry (by column A) of each name in column B.
Sub DeleteTheOldies() Dim RowNdx As Long For RowNdx = Range("B2").End(xlDown).Row To 2 Step -1 If Cells(RowNdx, "B").Value = Cells(RowNdx - 1, "B").Value Then If Cells(RowNdx, "A").Value
I have been trying a number of different functions!
I have the following countif function that is searching a worksheet (Cases Closed) for the name John in Column O and excluding Solutions in column x. The problem I have is there are duplicates cases in Column C that are being counted two and three times.
Is there anyway to have the following function exclude duplicates records in Column C? Just count unique records in Column C?
Basically I've made this up myself because what ill be working with has 100s if not 1000s of rows with many different product numbers that's quantities are different. What I've been able to do up to now is sort the spreadsheet by the product number so all the same rows are next to each other. My problem is however I need a speedy way of making these duplicate rows become one but add the total quantity basically everything in the left screenshot into the one on the right. What I've tried up to now is sorting them so there together and manually adding them up and putting them into one of the rows quantity, then delete the rest. takes to long. Another was to make a row underneath the rows I need into one but that takes more time than manually adding and deleting the rest.
I'm working on a employee evaluation form. I'm using a Pass/Fail system. I have a cell designated for PASS & one for FAIL. In these cells, I would put "YES" if they passed, "YES" if they failed that section. How can I prevent someone from mistakingly entering Yes in both cells?
I've generated a sheet where, based on the total run hours of a generator set using a given fuel type, we can determine which engine to run on what fuel when. The problem I've run into is that if more than one engine has the same runtime, the chart returns just the lowest numbered engine and eliminates the remaining engine(s). What I'm trying to do is make it so that when this occurs, the suggested engines show up in numerical order. For example instead of 1, 1, and 1 showing up on the chart, something like 1, 2, and 5 will show when they all have 0 run hours. I've attached my chart below with some engines having the same runtimes. RunOrder.xlsx
=COUNTIF($A$1:$D$100,A1)=1 however I don't know how to change that to suit my needs (or even if it is at all possible to change it to suit my needs)
I will try my best to explain how my spreadsheet is set up as unfortunately I am at work and I can not use the method to show you the spreadsheet.
My spreadsheet: I already have Data Validation in use from a list that I created. I use the same validation list in Columns C, E, G, I, K-BA
I also use validation list in other cells, and it is OK if these are duplicated throughout the row.
The only cells that should not contain duplicate information are the ones from C, E, G, I, K-BA
Basically I want to stop someone accidentally chosing the same option from the list within the same ROW.
Just in case it makes any difference I should let you know that I have already had help from the forum regarding macros for this same spreadsheet, here is the macro that is currently running just in case it makes a difference if there is an answer to my current problem.
Option Compare Text 'A=a, B=b, ... Z=z Option Explicit
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim Cell As Range Dim Rng1 As Range
On Error Resume Next Set Rng1 = ActiveSheet.Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas, 1) On Error GoTo 0 If Rng1 Is Nothing Then Set Rng1 = Range(Target.Address).........................
there are unique entries like AU0896 etc. that are repeated in my list. my job is to find how many unique entries there are and add the count at the end so, basically if there are 6 AU0896 entries, then I must create a AU08966 value.
In my spreadsheet, on ( sheet A) I pick up a value to a range (O2:O22) from other worksheet (sheet B), the value is validated when a cell in the same range but other column (A2:A10) reach a specific criteria.
But in the same column if the criteria is typed again I gone a have the same value on range( O ), and I dont want that, because this value represents a total for a day, and is to be added to other cell.
I'm using this, to pick up the data Ex: (A2:A10) Criteria (O2:O10) value picked up
on SheetA, Sumif(sheetBA10:A40,A2,SheetBK10:K40)
How can I count only one of the values picked up from sheet B?
Got a workbook with 4 worksheets and sometimes we need to cut and paste a row from one worksheet to another, now thats easy now as we are all human and sometimes it gets copied and we have duplicate logs.
Now each sheet has usually not got that many rows in it, but that spreadsheet is getting sent to the highest people in the company and any mistakes look poor.
What i'm looking for is a way that i can highligh any rows that a duplicated in each worksheet. I can do it in each worksheet using conditional formatting with something like = COUNTIF($A8:$A$20,A8)>1. but don't know how to check that is not on any other worksheet. On every worksheet only need to check Col A for the duplicate information
Wihitn a large SS I have a column which has a number of entries that may include an amount of duplicate entries. Till now I have been using Sort and them manually deleting the duplicates is anyway that I can select just the Column and then without sorting go down and if a duplicate is found, then the duplicate would be deleted. Meant to say the dta is numeric.
I have a spreadsheet which has data in column A & B. I trying to do an if statement to state "YES" if data in both A and B has been duplicated. EG 111 in (A) & 222 in (B) are a PAIR, im need an if statemnet in Column (C) to say if this PAIR are duplicated in these two columns return "YES". I have tried THREE different methods to do acheive this which are in the attached document. The main issue I am having is the iff statement is returning yes for some of the number when thye are completely different. I have used concatenate, & and tried to multiply the two values to try to make it unique. I have an example of each in the separate tabs.
