Identifying And Deleting Duplicate Records In Different Sheets

Feb 13, 2009

I have to load the data in Sheet 3 but before I do that I have to make sure that any organisation name that already exist in either Sheet 1 or Sheet 2 should be removed from Sheet 3.

Sheet 1 has 226 Organisation Names
Sheet 2 has 62 Organisation Names
Sheet 3 has 664 Organisation Names

I do not know how to write a Macro, nor d o I know how to write code.
Can someone help with a formular or code? or is there another simple way to do it?

Excel 2003 :: Deleting Duplicate Records

Jan 28, 2014

Any way of Deleting duplicate records, using Excel 2003.

The raw data is in the form of a text string. For example:

Vehicle 123456_F_AB 280
Vehicle 123456_R_AB 147

So when I do a count of these cells, I obtain a count of 2. '=Count(A1)'. How can I easily exclude 1 of the duplicates (123456). It needs to be a user friendly solution as other people may have to run this when I'm on leave?

Find Duplicate Records Based On Multiple Columns But Keep Records

Aug 10, 2014

I have a range of columns i.e. 23 columns (i.e. B through X). Someone can write records in these columns (starting from B21).

Duplicates are considered the rows with similar data in columns 3 and 11. I know about the removeduplicate method and works really well but i want the duplicates not to be removed. Instead another column shall be checked for date of entry (user will entry date in format dd/mm/yyyy). The newest entry will change the value of the cell in column 4 (islatest column)to TRUE while all other records will be FALSE. This will work with the filtering of data on a pivot table on another worksheet.

Identifying And Copying Duplicate Numbers?

Apr 3, 2014

I realise there are a few threads on similar topics but I can't seem to get any of them to work for my scenario. I have two columns with a list of numbers in each. I'm after a function that will scan column A and identify any numbers that also appear in column B. If possible I would like it to then generate a list of these in say, column C.

Identifying Duplicate Data Between Workbooks

Apr 22, 2009

I am looking for the easiest way to find duplicate Work Order numbers that exist in 2 separate Workbooks. EX. Workbook 1 Sheet one contains the numbers 1-100 in A1:A100
Workbook 2 Sheet one contains X amount of the numbers between 1-100 located.

somewhere in A:A. For arguments sake let's assume those numbers are 3,6,33,87,99.
What would the formula be to return the values that are in both of the workbooks?

Identifying Duplicate Values (2nd / 3rd And 4th Occurrence)

Jul 31, 2013

I have a list of "GPC" or company identification numbers. And for every campaign being sent to the company it will have the same GPC of identification code. I want a formula that indicates if it is the first time mailing the company (as a result return nothing for column D ""), the second time mailing them, third, or fourth. So basically I need a formula to find the duplicate values and return whether it is the first, second, third, or fourth time that code appears in column A.

The current formula I have is a little off because it checks against the cell beforehand. I'm not sure how to modify the formula or what different forumla I need. Attached is an example. I am looking at column A and trying to return the data in D. You can also see the faulty formula I currently have in place.

Identifying Duplicate Numbers In Same Row In Multiple Columns

Jun 9, 2014

I have unit measures that are converted across four columns (FT, SQFT, SQM and SQY).

THere are three units in rows (BOX, Skid and Roll). I am trying to identify in a column labeled "Duplicate Volume" with a formula stating "YES" if there are duplicate numbers (volumes) in any of the four conversion columns listed above. I tried to attach an excel file here but the system will not accept it. Hopefully the diagram i make below will be enough to understand the concept:

Unit Name FT SQFT SQM SQY Duplicate?

BOX 0 0 15 0
BOX 0 0 20 20 YES
Skid 0 10 10 10 YES
Skid 0 0 0 15
Roll 100 10 2 1.5
Roll 0 0 40 40 YES

I have over 50 thousand rows of this looking at the data to decide if there are duplicates will not happen.

Any formula that i can put in the column titled "Duplicate" that can identify the duplicates with a "YES" in the cell where duplicates are found?

Identifying Duplicate Text Strings In A Column

Sep 17, 2005

with creating this macro to identify duplicate text strings in a column, which is great.

But, I'd like to be able to identify them by changing the text of the subsequent duplicates that are found.

For example, if 3 cells in a column are 1111, I'd like to add a string of text to the end of the 2nd & 3rd cell, but not the 1st cell.

This will enable me to sort the column and find the duplicate easier than just visually.

Sub color_dup()
Dim r As Range, rng As Range, Col As String
Col = "d"
Set rng = Range(Col & ":" & Col)
rng.Interior.ColorIndex = 0
For Each r In Range(Col & "1", Range(Col & "65536").End(xlUp))
If Application.CountIf(rng, r) > 1 Then
r.Interior.ColorIndex = 6
End If
End Sub

Subsequent Duplicate Records

Mar 30, 2009

I have a single-column list. The column header is 'ID'... records within this column repeat sometimes (this is ok). I need a worksheet function that will allow me to mark the second, third, or fourth duplicate, but leave the first duplicate alone or unmarked. I have searched the Web and this forum, and came up empty. If this cannot be done with a worksheet function, then VBA is welcome. No ColorIndex.

Sumif Without Duplicate Records

May 8, 2008

In Column A, is gender: male/female
In Column B, is name: Bob, Jon, Mary, etc
In Column C, is salary: $40, $30, $20, etc.

In column B, there will be instances where a name might appear more than once. I want to be able to do a sumif formula of Column A and Column C, but not include any records where a name in column B is listed more than once. Is there a way to do this?

1 Male Bob $50
2 Female Jane $30
3 Female Kate $20
4 Male Mike $30
5 Male Bob $50

So if I wanted to sum all male salaries above, it would be $80, not $130.

Keep Only Duplicate Records And Remove The Rest

Dec 12, 2012

My spreadsheet has more than 200 columns and 5000 rows of data and blanks. When I select all columns and rows and remove the duplicates, 6 records are removed. I need to only keep and be able to identify those 6 records. I could use something like =IF(COUNTIF($A$2:A2,A2)=1,1,0) if I had only few columns that would identify dups but since there are so many columns it would be prodigious job to create one formula for each column and filter through 200.

Duplicate Check On Export Of Records

Dec 20, 2008

I have a spreadsheet that will export records when I "click" a button, to a spreadsheet on a network drive.

I would like to attach some code that will check to see if a duplicate record is going to be written to the network drive, and if so, alert the user that they are about to create a duplicate . If it is a duplicate, give the user the option to overwrite the existing record.

Ex. I export the results for account 12345.....Account 12345 is now written to an outside sheet.

User2 logs in and works with customer 12345, w/out knowing that someone has already worked with this account, presses the export button.....This is the trigger point for what I want to happen. At this point when it locates a dupe in the outside spreadsheet it will prompt the user too make some chouces .

find attached the code I would like to attach this to...

Consolidate Duplicate Fields / Records?

Apr 12, 2013

I have spent the last couple hours compiling a large amount of data. I have a list of websites, each have a number of visits and transactions. The list is many thousands strong so i have a huge amount of data to work with but there are a lot of duplicate sites. See below, I have taken a snapshot of some of it:

I've highlighted a duplicate example.

Would it be possible across the entire data set to sum all of the duplicate rows into one. So, for the 3 shown, to be reduced to one row with 228 visits and 2 transactions?

And to do it quickly? As I could go through them manually but I don't have to time to go through 10,000 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?

I need to extract rows where Rep A and Rep B have made sales on the same day to the same customer (it doesn't matter what type of sales). I don't want to extract sales by only one rep, it must be both reps on the same day to the same customer. I have tried a pivot table but it identifies all sales. Can this be done?

Concatenating Data From Multiple Duplicate Records

Sep 15, 2006

I have an excel spreadsheet that should have one record for each artifact in a museum collection. The problem is that the museum has consolidated this information from several different sources into one spreadsheet and now there are many duplicate records. They want all the duplicate records removed so that there is just one record for each artifact, BUT there may be different pieces of information in each of the duplicate records. So I want to do the following:

- sort records based on Accession Number (column A)
- find duplicate Accession Number records
- determine which fields (columns) within a duplicate record are unique and concatenate those entries into one master record for each Accession Number
- delete the duplicate Accession Number records

In the attached sample sheet, for Accession Number 66-1-100, we have 6 duplicate records. In the columns, we have information which in some of the records is duplicated, in some it is unique and in some it is missing completely. The museum wants just one master record for each Accession Number and they want all the data from the duplicate records concatenated into one and all the duplicates and blanks discarded.

What I've done so far:............

How To Prevent Duplicate Records From Being Entered On Recording Sheet

Feb 9, 2013

I have a created recording sheet (attached) for the purpose of recording moths. I send this sheet out to those recorders who live in my county and at the end of the year they send the filled in sheet back to me. Over time I have put safeguards onto the sheet to ensure that I get the cleanest data returned to me. However, there is still one area which is giving me problems - users entering duplicate records.

Some formula which will stop recorders from entering those duplicate records. There are many columns on the sheet which recorders have to fill in with information, but as far as the duplicate records are concerned it is where the same information is entered into columns C, F and J that I'm having a problem with. It would be great if, when the same information was entered in these columns that the affected cells were highlighted in some way and if an error message appeared saying 'Duplicate record, either delete or alter grid reference'

I have entered two test duplicate record on the 'macro moths' sheet of the attached file : Test Recording sheet.xls‎
