Finding Duplicate Data And Merging Cells

Nov 5, 2007

What I have is a massive table of data (15k+ entries), which consists of 4 different tables merged together. I have a lot of duplicate entries. However, most of these entries have information in one or another columns that its duplicate does not.

What I need to do is:

Identify the duplicate entries (by part number, which is one of the columns).

Merge the duplicate entries. In the merging process, I need to carry information over, taking data that is currently in 2 or more rows and merging it into one row.

Here's an example:

column1 column2 column3 column4
row1 a . . d
row2 . b
row3 . . c

needs to turn into:

column1 column2 column3 column4
row1 a b c d

If I'm not explaining this well, I will do my best to clarify. My main question is, is there any way to automate this process (even partially)

Merging Duplicate Cells ..

Mar 25, 2008

how would i run a macro to merge duplicate cells in a column

For example, i have lots of data in columns A, B and C

however some of the data in columns A and B is the same. Column C data never changes. so to make it easier to read, i would like to merge these cells (which are the same) together?

-ColumnA-
Cat
Cat
Cat
Dog
Dog
Dog
Dog
Mouse
Mouse
Mouse
Mouse
Mouse

would become.... (with all the other data the same)

-ColumnA-
Cat

Dog

Mouse

I dont want to lose any of the rows, as the data in column C is always different. I just want to merge the similar ones, so its easier to read.

Its a bit like this, but i cant even come close to getting this to work:

Merging Duplicate Rows With Unique Data?

Jun 5, 2013

I have attached a before and after image of what I am looking to accomplish.

In the before image, you can see that there are 3 rows of data
- a header
- a repeating model number (in column F) with accompanying data (values in columns G - J are the items of interest)

In the after image, you can see that I took the 3 rows of data and turned it into simply two rows of data
- a header
- the repeating model number

What I did however in the after image, as can be seen, is I took certain data values that appeared on the repeating row (columns G - J), and included them as PRICE, COST, BEGIN, and END values in new columns on row 2.

Is there a way to accomplish this via some functions or maybe even a VBA script?

Merging Duplicate Rows And Keeping Original Data

Feb 18, 2014

I need to merge rows with duplicate values in column A (Patient Name being the most important one), with columns B, C, & D usually having different isolated values as well. Columns E, F, G, H, & I are date columns, but the data is always going to be the number 1, meaning a patient was seen once that day (if they were seen two times that day for different reasons, information would be in an unmerged second row [same patient name listed in two separate rows], where columns B & C would be different). Column J is an autosum of columns E through I if that makes a difference. Column K is a notes column. The data that needs to be merged is always added to the bottom of the spreadsheet in order to show that a patient was seen on any given day, with columns B through K almost always being blank. Example:

Column A---------Column B---Col C----Col D--Col E--Col F--Col G--Col H--Col I--Col J---------Col K
Patient Name-----Therapist---Shared--%P----2/3----2/4----2/5-----2/6----2/7---Total Visits--Notes

Alice Alpha--------AB----------PT-------1---------------------------------------------0-------------blah
Boris Beta---------BC----------SELF----2----------------------------------------------0------------blahblah
Carl Carlisle-------CD---------PTA------3----------------------------------------------0
Carl Carlisle-------AB---------SELF-----2----------------------------------------------0
Donny Delta-------DE---------PT--------1---------------------------------------------0
Ernie Elephant-----EF---------PTA-------2---------------------------------------------0
Alice Alpha-----------------------------------------------1
Carl Carlisle--------------------------------------1--------------1---------------1
Ernie Elephant-------------------------------------------1---------------1

This is what I'm hoping it can look like:

Column A---------Column B---Col C----Col D--Col E--Col F--Col G--Col H--Col I--Col J---------Col K
Patient Name-----Therapist---Shared--%P----2/3----2/4----2/5-----2/6----2/7---Total Visits--Notes

Alice Alpha--------AB----------PT-------1---------------1-----------------------------1-------------blah
Boris Beta---------BC----------SELF----2----------------------------------------------0------------blahblah
Carl Carlisle-------CD---------PTA------3-------1--------------1---------------1------3
Carl Carlisle-------AB---------SELF-----2----------------------------------------------0
Donny Delta-------DE---------PT--------1---------------------------------------------0
Ernie Elephant-----EF---------PTA-------2--------------1---------------1-------------2

In this example Carl Carlisle is being seen for two different things, however how would it be written so the macro would know which Carl Carlisle row to merge with? I'm thinking that before running the macro I could manually enter the information into column B so it knows which Carl Carlisle row above to merge with.

Data always starts at row 14 (row 13 is frozen pane header column), and extends to a row that is different every week depending on how many people happen to be in the list.

I found something from this link that looks very similar to what I need, but with no knowledge of coding, I have no idea how it should be tweaked: Merge Duplicate Rows Keeping Data In Same Columns

I know I'm asking a lot, but the amount of time this takes to manually go through hundreds of rows of patient names every week is incredibly time consuming, and I have too many other things to stay on top of at work for this to drag me down day in and day out.

Finding And Managing Duplicate Data?

Jun 18, 2014

I have two spreadsheets of "leads"

One lead is a do not call list that has 4 separate columns of phone numbers,

The second list is a batch I purchased.

I need to make sure that the second batch does not contain the info from the first spread sheet.

I guess I could modify the 1st spreadsheet to just be one column of numbers, then I would be comparing one column to one column.

Finding Duplicate Data And Deleting

Jan 27, 2014

Any way of finding particular data from a data set and deleting the data from that field without using conditional formatting or remove duplicates?

I have used a vlookup to find the words that I needed I now need to find where the are located in my original data set and delete these so I am left with data that if I perform a vlookup on it will not bring back any words as they will have been deleted.

Finding If The Copied Data Is A Duplicate?

Feb 4, 2014

I use this code below to copy information from various sheets on to one sheet,

PHP Code: 

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim copySheet As Worksheet
Dim pasteSheet As Worksheet
Dim xrow As Integer, xcol As Integer

[code]....

i use a command button to run the macro, but i would like something added that if someone else pressed the button and ran it again that it would check to see if it had duplicated the previous line and if it did it would delete it leaving just the one record for that week.

Macro For Merging Duplicate Entries?

Apr 3, 2013

I'm trying to get data totals for multiple entries and haven't been able to figure out how to do this using a pivot table.

For example:

A B
Ben 2
Bill 1
Jane 3
Bill 4
Dave 7
Jane 4


Would make it

Ben 2
Bill 5
Jane 7
etc.

this list is 3700 cells long.

Is there an easy macro or another way of doing this? I want to generate a list that gives all data totals but just lists each persons name once. I treid attaching the file but it wont let me! here is the link... [URL]

Data Consolidate - How To Maintain Case Sensitive Data After Merging Cells

Dec 8, 2013

I'm looking for a way of keeping case sensitive data in a range of cells, before using Data Consolidate, which when merged afterwards, Consolidate removes the case sensitivity and combines the quantities into one.

Check out this simple table as an example >

A
B
C
D
E
F
G
H

1
TEXT
QTY
TEXT
QTY
TEXT
QTY
TEXT
QTY

2
and
3
and
2
and
10
and
5

[Code] .........

Cells A1-B7 and C1-D7 are two sets of original data, before consolidation.

Cells E1-F4 are the result of applying a Data Consolidate operation to the A1-B7 and C1-D7 ranges - note how the merged result ignores the case sensitive condition in the original ranges.

Cells G1-H7 is the post-consolidation result that I'm looking for, where the original text case is maintained.

Merging Cells With Similar Data

Mar 2, 2005

I am trying to merge two cells that have the exact same content in each cell. Everytime I do this, I get a pop-up warning that Im trying to merge cells with content in them and that only the upper-left content will remain. This is exactly what I want, without that pop-up, as I have to do this for multiple columns at a time.

Merging Almost Duplicate Rows In Excel File?

Aug 6, 2013

I have an excel file which has many rows that are almost duplicate but some columns would differ, I would like to merge them, I will try to explain what I mean by "merge" .

Code :
Sub Remove_Duplicate()
Dim LASTROW As Long Dim I As Long Dim J As Long Dim K As Long Dim MyVALUE As Variant

[Code]....

Since I am very new to this language and my tinkering doesn't work at all. Whether or not a row is "almost duplicate" is based on columns A to G.

Merging Spreadsheets And Keeping Duplicate Rows?

Aug 15, 2014

I have a spreadsheet with only 80 rows in it and I need data from another spreadsheet with over 200 rows. One of these rows in each spreadsheet contains a matching field (Job #). I only want the 80 matching rows data from the over 200 row sheet.

Is there an easy way to combine these two. Even adding the 80 to the 200+ will be fine as I can just remove the blanks. I can't figure out a way to combine them and match them up.

Merging Multiple Data Cells Into One Cell?

Oct 24, 2013

I have a spreadsheet where I am trying to add up codes and quantitys, after this I want the repeated info deleted. For example;

12.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
12.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
20.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
24.004RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush
4.004RWHBSS4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush S/S
10.004RWHBSS4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush S/S
12.004RWHBSS4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush S/S

So what I want to do is add the numbers up so I can get one value. For example, 4RWHB I want to add them all up so that it totals 68 still shows the code and description but then only shows 68 4RWHB 4 Row Wooden Handle Welders Brush and not the same line repeated. I want to condense all the information down so where there is same model numbers I can add it up and it doesn't give me multiples but summarises it down into one line per model number.

Finding Duplicate Words?

Mar 14, 2012

I was wondering how I could highlight duplicate words or in a text strings of 5 or more words, 6 or more words etc or a desired value within a document? It would be great if I could highlight the cell with duplicate word in yellow. Essentially I was hoping that this could be done using VB/macro with just a simple button loaded on the toolbar. I hope that my explanation is easy enough to follow. Below is an example:

, KERK STRAAT 13,ROBERTSON,ROBERTSON,6705

Finding Duplicate Values Using VBA?

Aug 19, 2013

I have multiple columns / rows of data, some of which are duplicates.

Column S is a concat of columns A:R where this data is stored, and is sorted alphabetically.

I'm looking for a way using VBA to find duplicate concat rows by cycling through this list that is already sorted. I'm interested in moving down this list, 1 by 1, and if current cell = cell above, delete the data in columns A:P of that row, then delete the cell data in column R of the cell above the current cell.

So for example, if I have sorted data in S8:S14, and S9 = S8, then I would like to delete A9:P9, then delete the data in R8.

Finding And Deleting Both Duplicate Rows

Aug 5, 2007

I deal with leads for a sales room and get sent over leads in bulk, I've created a master scrub list that I can attach to the end of a new lead file and sort by number to show which are duplicates.

When you do the: Data, Filter, Advanced Filter, select Unique Records, it hides the duplicate but what I need is not only for the duplicate to be hidden or gone but the row that it is a duplicate of, i.e. I need BOTH rows to go

Name-----number
Dave 555-1212
Dave 555-1212
John 536-2343
Smith 423-2312

needs to become

Name-----number
John 536-2343
Smith 423-2312

I would need a formula that figured out that Dave with number 555-1212 was a duplicate and delete BOTH rows,

Finding Duplicate Records With Condition

Aug 20, 2008

Wondering if there is a way, script-wise or formula-wise that will look through a table and find duplicates but not just any duplicates, it has to match a certain criteria.

For example, I have a column for UPC and Vendor#. I have my table sorted by vendor (all 159 of them in one table) I want to find out whether a UPC appears more than once for a vendor.

UPC --- Vendor
11254 135
11251 135
11251 135
11254 9345
11251 9345

Here, as you can see, UPC 11251 appeared more than once for vendor 135. Can this be done through conditional formatting ? or a script?

Finding Duplicate Cell Entries

Dec 5, 2009

I have a lengthy excel spreadsheet in which I catalog all of my Karaoke song collection. I would like to be able to automatically locate (not delete) cells in which there are duplicate song titles. For my purposes just finding these items quickly so I may deal with them in a manner I've already developed is all I want to do. VBA, Macro or whatever would be appreciated. I'm a relative novice with macros and VBA.

For example row 12 may have the song title "Crazy" in column C and later row 1200 may have the same song title. Manually searching the spreadsheet for dupliates is way too time consuming so I think it can be seen why I'm looking to unlock the power of excel to do this for me.

Finding Data In Adjacent Cells

Apr 18, 2006

I'm using this formula (in conditional formatting) to compare a cell with the previous cell (e.g. E11 compares to D11). If it is higher/ lower/the same, E11 is coloured accordingly.

=MATCH(E11,Grades,0)<MATCH(D11,Grades,0)
=MATCH(E11,Grades,0)>MATCH(D11,Grades,0)
=(D11)

However. sometimes the data is not in D11 but C11 or B11. How do I tell excel to first of all look in D11 and only if the data is not there, to look in C11, then B11?
