How To Highlight Duplicates Based On Multiple Columns And Remove Them

Oct 8, 2011

I am trying to tell the spreadsheet that if column G *and* column V are both identical to another row's column G and V, then the entire row is a duplicate and to highlight and delete it. I also want to record a macro of this process to apply to all spreadsheets.

Here are the tutorials I am looking at, but whatever I am doing is not working the way it is working for them.

Conditional Formatting, find duplicates with multiple columns [URL]...

I am highlighting cell A2, and under Conditional Formatting, I select "Formula Is" =SUM(COUNTIF($G:$G,G2),COUNTIF($V:$V,G2))>1

Then I select the format as light orange text, but it is only highlighting A2....

That is as far as I have gotten, and I still do not know how to go about deleting the duplicate entries. I have also read there are issues with recording a macro when trying to find duplicates using more than one column in the formula, but I have not gotten that far so I can't test it.

As is likely evident in my formula and process, I am not very experienced with Excel.

Highlight Duplicates Between Multiple Columns?

Jun 9, 2014

I'm running a football competition for my business where customers are required to guess World Cup football scores via Facebook. I'm storing all their entries in a spreadsheet.

In the spreadsheet column a is their name, b is the match (e.g. England v Italy), c is the home tame (England), d is the score (1-1), e is the away team (Italy)

Across from, that I have the actual fixtures taking place at the World Cup. So column I is the date, K is the home team (England), L is the actual score (2-0) and M is the away team (Italy)

What I need is a formula that when I enter the result on a game into the right set of columns (Columns I:M) it will highlight those Columns (Columns C:E) that have entered that correct score.

It needs to compare 3 columns and not just one because for example if it highlights the score (1:1 for example) it could be highlighting someone who picked Spain v Holland 1:1 where the correct result would be someone who picked England v Italy 1:1.

Highlight Duplicates Based On 2 Columns

Oct 28, 2006

I have a column of information, and I want to find out of there are duplicates in it without alphabetizing it. Where there is a duplicate (say E2=E5), I want to check the adjoining column to see if the value of those fields are duplicates as well (does F2=F5). So, what formula would I put in D2 to see if the value of E2 has an equal anywhere in column E, and if any duplicates are found (say E10,E33, and E43), to check if F10,F33 and F43 equal F2 (the value adjoining the cell that was searched for).

to find duplicate entries in a database by using people's last names (in column E) and birthdays (in column F). Odds are if they have the same DOB and the same last name, we've found a duplicate.

Highlight Duplicates Based On X Columns

Aug 28, 2007

I need to find a way to highlight duplicate records within a list. The records would first need to be compared by (1) the month (found in column A), (2) the account number (found in column B) and then (3) the commission type (found in column D).

I do not need the duplicates deleted just highlighted or better yet maybe have them identified as "Duplicates" in an empty column (such as column H).

Remove Duplicates Of Multiple Columns

Jul 25, 2007

I have searched the many forum solutions for duplicates however the ones I found relate to a single column. However what I would like to be able to do is starting from row 6 is to remove duplicates of multiples columns of a single worksheet, namely columns M, O, P, Q and R. Note some cells in each column are blank.

To clarify - it would firstly check for duplicates in column M, keeping just one of the rows of the duplicated value and removing entiely the row/rows of where the duplications appeared. Then go through each of the other four columns. of the worksheet doing the same for each of the other four columns.

Then after the duplicates are removed from all five columns provide a tally at the bottom of the worksheet of how many times a value now appears in the cells of each of repective columns.

Output Data From Multiple Columns / Remove Duplicates

Apr 4, 2013

This is a very SMALL sample of the data I need to sort through. We have been using filters but the data is growning and becoming far too time consuming using the filter method.

The output I am looking to achieve is something like this, (any format is fine; whether in rows or columns)

SVR1
1.99.99.254
(2) CAT I (display how many CAT I for SVR1)
CAT I: 2011-B-44
CAT I: ST-5546
(2) CAT II (display how many CAT II for SVR1)
CAT II: 2011-B-52
CAT II: 2011-A-21

SVR2
2.5.2.333
(1) CAT I
CAT I: 2012-E-55
(1) CAT II
CAT II: 2011-A-21

COLUMN A, varies from SVR1-SVR1400 (cointains duplicates)
COLUMN B, IP matches SVR name (contains duplicates)
COLUMN C, will be either CAT I, CAT II, CATIII
COLUMN D, will contain duplicates

I have some history of using formulas and nested formulas but this one is really throwing me for a loop. It feels like Inception to me and I'm not really sure where to start!

A
B
C
D

SVR1
1.99.99.254

Excel 2010 :: Find Or Remove Duplicates In Columns

May 11, 2014

I have following sheet:
Data from A1: BU1644

I need to check, if in A1:BU1 are any duplicate words.
All the formulas I found deal with finding duplicates downward (like A1:A1000).
Have not seen any formula which works across (from left to right)

Is there an easy way in Excel 2010 either to tag/ and -or remove the duplicate which I could apply and then just copy downward? The formula must work from left to right, because many words repeat downward.

Enter And Highlight Data In Columns Based On Other Columns

Jul 10, 2009

I have a worksheet with 20+ columns. For this macro, I only need to focus on 4 of them. However, none of these columns are ever in a fixed position so the macro would need to find them by name and NOT by column position. Here they are...

1. Vacation Type (will only have a text value of either "Cold" or "Warm")

2. Vacation Started (will always have a date *x/xx/xxxx)

3. Vacation Ended (sometimes it will have a date '*x/xx/xxxx' and sometimes it will NOT have a date and will be truly blank)

4. Number of Days (currently has ALL truly blank cells)

THIS WHOLE MACRO SHOULD NOT BE CASE SENSITIVE ANYWHERE

Here's what I would like the macro to do...

Scenario 1 - for "Cold" values Find "Cold" text values in the "Vacation Type" column

"Cold" values WITH a date in the "Vacation Ended" columnIF there IS a date in the "Vacation Ended" column in the same row, put the number of days difference between the "Vacation Started" column and "Vacation Ended" column in the "Number of Days" column.

The amount of days in the "Number of Days" column will determine whether these cells should be highlighted GREY or RED.

Scenario 1-AIF the number of days difference is 7 days or less, highlight the cells in the "Vacation Ended" column and "Number of Days" column RED.

ORÖ
Scenario 1-BIF the number of days difference is MORE than 7 days, highlight the cells in the "Vacation Ended" column and "Number of Days" column GREY..................................

Find Duplicates From Multiple Columns And Return A Value?

Jun 9, 2014

My spreadsheet has multiple "sessions" by date and each has three columns: a name, their organization, and a column where we want to display an "R" if they are a repeat participant. Each new session is entered to the right of the last. The names are in every third column. Like so:

name company R
name company
name company
name company R

Is it possible to search through the whole document to find repeating names, and then display an "R" in every third column if they are a repeat participant?

Compare Multiple Columns - Flag Duplicates?

Nov 14, 2013

Columns A, B, and C have data (first name, last name, state) - 125k rows. Columns F, G, and H have data (first name, last name, state) - 5k rows. Some of these individuals are bound to appear on both lists, and I need to know which ones are indeed on both lists. So in other words, let's say I've got "John" "Doe" "TX" in cells F1, G1, and H1, respectively. I want to search through columns A, B, and C to find out if there are any instances in those columns of "John" "Doe" "TX" in the same row.

I'm thinking there will be multiple VLOOKUP formulas involved, but I could be way off.

Delete Rows Based On Duplicates In X Columns

May 14, 2006

I've been looking through various forums looking for a macro for a particular task, but I have not found something that works yet. Maybe someone could help me out? It's pretty straightforward situation.

I need a macro that removes an entire row when: information in column B and column C are both found in other rows ( duplicates).

I'm dealing with a worksheet with store record information ... Store Name (column B), Street Name (column C), State/Province, etc. I import new store records all the time and many are invalid because they share the same name and street address and therefore need to be removed. The ones that Iíve played with unfortunately end up deleting the cells only and not the entire row.

It's a tedious process to do manually remove entire rows (for duplicate column B&C) when dealing with thousands of rows and I would very much appreciate any assistance or insight into how simplify the process with a macro. I've attached a sample of what I'm working with.

Indentify Duplicates In Table Based On X Columns

Nov 19, 2007

I have a worksheet that contains thousands of patient appointment entries, there are more than one entry with the same patient details contained in the worksheet. For example; sometimes a patient will reschedule a appointment, this causes another entry to added for the new appointment. When the patient attends this appointment, the appointment status changes to Seen. But the original entry still stays Rescheduled. This there a way that we can look for identical infomation in some selected columns that match the original entry but have different infomation in some other columns:

E.G. The cells in columns A,B,C,H have identical infomation than the original entry but the cell text in column D equals to "Checked" or "Cancelled" and the cell date in column G is higher than the original entry date. If the result is true then tag the original entry as Invalid

Excel 2003 :: Highlight Row Based On Specified Columns?

Dec 19, 2012

I would like to have Excel 2003 be able to highlight the row if there is data in certain columns. Specifically if there is a number greater than zero.

For example the following could work:

[CODE][=OR(LEN(H9),LEN(I9),LEN(K9),LEN(Q9),LEN(R9),LEN(S9),LEN(W9),LEN(X9),LEN(Y9),LEN(AB9),LEN(AD9))/CODE]

However, there are times when I need to add a column/criteria. Thus I would have to go into conditional format and redo all the rows in the worksheet. Is there a smarter way to do this?

I was hoping to provide a list of cell address from the header or better than that look for specific numbers in the header row and if there is a number greater than zero, then highlight the entire row.

There is no specific pattern as to which columns would trigger the requirement.

Also how do you keep the ranges from moving when copying across and down. Sometimes I run into that issue. Maybe highlight the entire row and then enter the conditional format?

Flagging Duplicates Based On Multiple Conditions

Nov 8, 2008

Flagging Duplicates based on Multiple conditions..

I have attached the file for reference with Dummy Data as the actual data runs in thousands...

What I require is to flag Duplicates with some formula so that I can filter and then later delete those specific rows from the records...

The Duplications has to be considered on Multiple criterions:
1. If the FNAme and LName is appearing for one Company more than once.

2. Sometimes there would be inconsistency in Data Entry, so the FNAme would be typed in the Column for LName and vice-versa.The code needs to understand the same.

3. Alongwith the above, if the Designation is different then the record with the Lower Designation based on the Weightage should be Flagged as "Duplicate".
Ex: -

4. If there's a tie between the same designation then the record with the Maximum information across all the columns having Max info should be Unique.
Ex:- The amount of details mentioned in the following columns would determine the record to be termed as Duplicate or unique

5. If still the records are identical then the first occurence can be unique...

I have made this data to give an example as the actual data is very confidential.

Please allow room for adding New Designations as the Designation and their Weightage needs to be Dynamic.

Please refere the Word doc Duplication Criterion Explanation for the explanation.
