# Highlighting Duplicates With Different Color For Each Duplicate?

Apr 17, 2014

## Highlighting Lowest Score Without Duplicates Highlighting And Counting Player Skins?

Feb 15, 2013

I found this spreadsheet on here and I have been trying to customize it to what I need. I am trying to have scores from skins match highlighted. I want only the minimum score to be highlighted but if there is another duplicate minimum score I don't want it to highlight anything. I also need to find a way to count the skins won by each player and have it off to the side.

For those not familiar with golf a Skin is a game where you try to get the lowest amount of strokes on a specific hole. Ex- 4 people play the hole one. P1 scores 4, P2 gets a 3, P3 and P4 get 6. The skin would go to P2 who has the lowest score on that hole.

Highlight lowest number in each column not highlighting if there are duplicates starting at L6 down to L11 and for each column till AC. And the same for the group just to the right on attached file.

On row 13 and 14 it tells me who won a skin. I want to tally up the total skins won by each player. so if Joe's names shows up twice on R14 I want it to tell me somewhere in the sheet Joe = 2

## Highlighting Variable Number Of Duplicates?

Jun 7, 2013

My sheet cotains a variable number of duplicates (2 up to 12 duplicates) that can each have different amounts.

Ex: 9879 = 7
9879 = 0

I would like to be able to highlight all the duplicates for that show only 0 as their value (all the duplicates must have a total value of 0). I've tried nested if functions and conditional formating but to no avail.

I've attached a small file that shows the end result.

## Highlighting All Duplicate Values Except First Instance?

May 22, 2014

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.

## 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.
