# 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 stuff...so 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 Ref Numbers Over 2 Columns

Jun 9, 2009

I have 2 columns I need to compare, in column A a list of ref numbers aprrox 62000 rows, with some duplicates. In column C a list of ref numbers 38000 rows again with some duplicates.

I need to be able to compare Column C to Column A. I need to identify the first instance of a ref number that matches from C to A so that I can delete it. The second instance of this ref number I would like keep. I have tried the following with no luck.

=if(countif(\$C\$2:C38000,A2)>1,"Duplicate","Unique")

## 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 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.
1111
dup-1111
dup-1111-dup

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
Next
End Sub

## 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?

## Duplicate Serial Numbers With Multiple Cells Of Text?

Feb 27, 2014

my spreadsheet has duplicate serial numbers in column A and the corresponding row in column B has mutliple descriptions for the same serial number. I need to combine those descriptions into 1 cell rather than having multiple rows for the same serial number. is there an IF formula that I can combine with a concatenate that will capture what I need?

## Don't Allow Duplicate Entries Across Multiple Columns

Jan 14, 2010

how i can set 'Data Validation' to stop me from entering duplicate values across multiple columns, i can set it for a single column i.e. A1 to A100 but i am after this but for something like A1 to H100.....?

I am currently using this formula in Data Validation:
=COUNTIF(\$A\$1:\$A\$100,A1)=1

I need something to do this but for multiple columns.

## Remove Duplicate Values In Multiple Columns?

## Counting Duplicate Cells In Multiple Columns

Mar 10, 2009

I'm on Excel 2003 and have a sheet to track people who have read my emails. I want to know the answers to the questions below. I've included a fake sample to show what I'm looking at. The number of cells in each column is much higher and not the same per column. I've tried variations of MATCH, VLOOKUP, SUMPRODUCT, etc. but haven't found a good way to set up a formula.....

## Finding Duplicate Values In Multiple Columns

Jan 4, 2013

I am not sure if Excel is able to do this but basically I am looking to find out which rows have some duplicate values. I have just read this back and it doesn't make a great deal of sense so I have attached an example spreadsheet.

Basically I am looking to find if E1:G1 duplicates further on down the list, hope this makes a bit more sense with the example attached.

## VBA Remove Duplicate Values From Multiple Columns

May 21, 2014

I'm using the code below to remove duplicate values from a column of cells, in this case column B.

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

The code works fine, but I'd now like to adapt this so I can remove the duplicates from columns B, C, D and F.

I've tried over the last few days different methods but recieve 'Debug' errors.

## Finding Duplicate Values In Multiple Columns?

Jan 24, 2014

For my job I have to take hundreds of codes and compare them to other codes. For example, in column A I'll have 453 codes, in column B I'll have 352 and in column 97. I want to find common codes for all three columns. Sometimes, I'll have just two columns and sometimes it's multiple columns. I have tried a few formulas but nothing works that well. Any formulas or MACRO

## Identifying Whether Cell Has Certain Numbers In It

Jun 10, 2013

I want to sort a spreadsheet based on whether any of the numbers '1', '2' or '3' appear in a particular column.

There are 2 particular rows which I care if they have a '1', '2' or '3' in them, let's say row 17 and 18.

I want to create a formula say in row 20 which would tell me if there is a '1', '2' or '3' in the corresponding cells in EITHER (!) row 17 or 18.

An example to clarify:

Cell A17 = 1
Cell A18 = 2

Then Cell A20 would be = 1 because both A17 and A18 have a '1', '2' or '3' .

2nd example:

Cell C17 = 1
Cell C18 = 0

Then Cell C20 would be = 1 because C17 has a '1', '2' or '3' .

3rd example

Cell D17 = 6
Cell D18 = 12

Then Cell D20 would be = "" (Null - no value) because neither D17 nor D18 has a '1', '2' or '3' .

Note: I am looking just for the numbers '1', '2' or '3' not (!) numbers like 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23 etc...

## Identifying Certain Combinations Of Numbers?

Mar 15, 2013

Is there a way in Excel to identifying certain combinations of numbers? If tried every IF statement I know.

I have an Excel with two columns of numbers and I need to identify their combinations.

18
18

18
19

18
19

18
20

18
18

18
20

The combinations 18 and 18 would return a "LOW" message in the third column, the combination 18 and 19 would return a message "HIGH" etc.

## Add Duplicate Values For Multiple Columns From Unique Data..

Jul 13, 2009

i would like to paste multiple duplicate values from unique values. Is there any way to do it in excel??

Ex:

Table 1:

3MG_HUMAN453
3MG_HUMAN44
3MG_HUMAN953
A1AT_HUMAN285
A1AT_HUMAN76
A1AT_HUMAN234
A1AT_HUMAN653
A1CF_HUMAN96
A1CF_HUMAN23
A1CF_HUMAN765
A4_HUMAN 944
A4_HUMAN 23
A4_HUMAN 755

Unique table

3MG_HUMAN100
A1AT_HUMAN78.89
A1CF_HUMAN90
A4_HUMAN 98

I wanted to add new column with these values for table 1 including duplicates. this is sample data and i wanted to replace thousands of this type.

## Identifying Word Table Numbers

Dec 9, 2013

I have a few hundred word files that I'm porting tables from. I initially imported every table into excel and figured out which table numbers I needed the data from. I only needed certain rows/columns from certain tables.

The code I have works great....if all the word files were the exact same. However, it appears that when different people edited the word documents, for whatever reason, a handful out of the 300 had their tables switched. So in some cases I'm looking for table 5, other times it could be table 6.

My question: Is there a way to identify the tables by text they contain? for example, the table 5/table 6 comment above, in all cases That table has a header cell called "Equipment". Basically I need something like:

"If CurrentTable contains "Equipment" Then set tableNo = CurrentTable" but I'm not sure how to do that.

In the code below wdDoc is a specific word document. tableNo is the variable set to identify which table to import from. I end up pulling data from three different tables that I would need to search for, each with a specific header.

Code:
With wdDoc
tableNo = wdDoc.tables.Count
tableTot = wdDoc.tables.Count
If tableNo = 0 Then
MsgBox "This document contains no tables", _
vbExclamation, "Import Word Table"

[Code] ........

## Conditional Formatting - Duplicate Rows Based On Multiple Columns?

Apr 8, 2014

I'm looking for a Conditional Formatting formula that will check two columns before highlighting the duplicate rows. I need it to be conditional formatting because I know nothing about writing macros or vba (what-ever that is?). Data is entered into Columns A, B, and C. I need to check both column A and C before it highlights the duplicates, based on those two columns. (The format only unique or duplicate values checks only one column.) I have attached an example, but this is just an example, as I have hundreds of lines to go through on the original. (For this example, Row 2 and Row 7 are the duplicates I need highlighted.)

## Finding Duplicate Rows Based On Values In Multiple Columns?

Mar 28, 2014

I have a data set which has 6 columns (and lots of rows). Every row is different but I want to aggregate them based on 4 fields and then find the average of the numerical column for the results. I basically want to Group based on 4 fields and find the average of the 5th field.

My initial approach was to introduce a column which is a combination of the 4 fields I want to group by, simply in the Excel file (=A2&B2&C2&D2) and then find duplicates of that. I have a solution for this in VBA but when importing new data sets in this method is very slow, so I want to be able to do the whole thing in VBA.

## Identifying Consecutive Numbers In Random Order

Jun 9, 2009

formula to identify consecutive numbers in order, but having trouble figuring out how to identify consecutive numbers in random order.

Cell M1,N1,O1,P1, and Q1 each have a number, 1,4,9,3 and 7.

We have 3 and 4 being consecutive number but they are not in order, would like help in a formula to put a 1 on an empty cell S indicating that there is a consecutive number with a 1 if there are no consecutive numbers then it would give a 0.

The current formula only works if the consecutive numbers are in order, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, etc...

=IF(SUMPRODUCT(--(N1:Q1-M1:P1=1)),1,0)

## Identifying Missing Numbers And Updating In Single Cell

Jul 9, 2014

As i am working on consolidating the Missing numbers manually, whether will it possible for making this automatic.

In Column "A" I have Multiple Duplicate Invoice Numbers and followed by the Different Transcation numbers in Column "B".

In Column "D" I have Each Invoice Numbers and in Column "E" Total Transaction Numbers i.e., no. of times each Invoice have Transactions.

In Column "F" No. of times we received the Transactions.

Here i need to manually need to update each Invoice's Missing Transaction number in Column "H" in single cell with comma separated to each Missing Transaction numbers.

Example:

Before : (Column "A" & "B")

Invoice NumbersTransaction NumbersInvoice NumbersTotal Transaction NumbersReceived Transaction Numbers
A2014000351501 A201400035150 3 2
A2014000351502 A201400035494 13 12
A2014000354941 A201400035881 12 11
A2014000354942 A201400035884 19 17
A2014000354943 A201400035888 14 13
A2014000354944 A201400037613 5 1
A2014000354945

[Code]...

Instead of doing this manually can we have the VBA to auto Update these missing numbers.

Here by i am attaching sample file.

## Excel 2010 :: VBA Code To Search Multiple Columns And Delete Any Duplicate Cells (not Rows)

Jun 12, 2014

My Excel program (Excel 2010) currently has several columns and each column looks for and pulls data from a specific file on my computer. Then I need to delete any duplicate data entries, count the number of unique entries and track the changes through a chart. I have everything done except I cannot figure out (or find on the internet) a way to search in multiple columns (more than 2) and delete just the duplicate cells. I want to delete the cells in a way where there is one left. For example if the code 12gf is duplicated three time, I want to be left with one 12gf (it doesnt matter what column the original one is left in). Additionally, column length changes and they are not sorted. I have attempted to attach an image of an example file below.

## Identifying Multiple Entries.

Sep 30, 2009

I'm trying to identify duplicates with a return of "True" or "False". The attached workbook has column F for results (to read PI2 A if in column L, PI2 B if in column R or Both), but I want to query if everyone in column E is in column L or is in Column R and if so which one.

## Replacing Multiple Numbers In Columns Vba

Feb 13, 2007

I have a column titled PA that has several cells with numbers, like 141, 151, 161, 242, 251, 382 etc. Is there a way that I can replace all these numbers in the column using a vba code. For example, replacing all the numbers beginning with 1** to 1 and 2** to 2.

## Identifying The Same Transaction With Multiple Rows Of Data

Sep 21, 2009

I currently have a database that is similar to the example I've pasted below:

TypeDateTimeA10/01/200910:00B10/01/200910:00C10/01/200910:00D10/01/200912:00E10/01/200912:00

As you can see the Date and Time are repeated for several rows. This is how the data I receive comes through as A,B and C refer to a single transaction and D & E refer to another transaction.

Ideally what I would like to acheive is:

TypeDateTimeTransactionA10/01/200910:001B10/01/200910:00C10/01/200910:00D10/01/200912:002E10/01/200912:00

Where Excel can compare the date and times of each row and look for matching rows above and below it and then fill in a column next to it indicating that x number of rows are linked to a single transaction - preferably labelling them in some order to I can tell how many transactions there are.

## Sorting A List Of Numbers By Multiple Columns

Oct 13, 2008

I want to sort the list like this:

1) If there is a zero (null) value in all 3 months, these records should be at the bottom sorted by record name (I did not show this field in my file).
2) If there is a non-zero (non-null) value in any of the 3 months, the records will be sorted with each other by total change.

Is there a way to do this without me doing sorts multiple times and manually moving rows of data around (which is what I have done to arrive at the list I have attached)? I am not experienced with VBA or Macros, and would prefer a detailed explanation if a solution is using either method.

## Identifying Rows To Delete Based On Multiple Conditions?

Jun 5, 2014

Maybe this has been taken care of in another thread, but still:

ROW ID NUM OCC K OCC I
1 222222 0 0
2 222222 0 0
3
4 333333 0 0
5 333333 0 0
6 333333 0 0
7
8 444455 1 1
9 444455 1 1

I have a situation like above, but what I want to do is:

=FOR(ROW1:ROW9, IF COUNT ROWS(ID_NUM)>= 2,

(create name for set?)

AND

IF OCC_K AND OR OCC_I VALUES >= 0,

THEN DELETE ROWS(within set) >=2

Or more simply:

If there are rows with multiple Accident ID numbers, name that set,
and if OCC_K and/or OCC_K values are BOTH >= 0,
then delete all duplicate rows?

Yes I figure there needs to be some way to distinguish Row 1 from Row 2, (flagging one of the two?) so that ROW 2 can be identified, and similarly with Row 4 from Row 5 from Row 6, but the general flow of commands is what I'm trying to get at.

Is it also possible to use AND and OR in the same line? Or BOTH?

(I have other variations on this that I also like to ask about, such as multiple rows within a set that meet certain conditions that are identified in a different field, but for now this is a simpler version.)

I would like to think I'm not going to need a macro, and that I can do this in a Formula.

## 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.

## Excel 2010 :: Count Consecutive Numbers Over Multiple Columns / Rows

May 27, 2014

I'm using Excel 2010 and my spreadsheet contains numbers in columns A:E and approx 500+ rows. Here is a 10 row example of my data:

A B C D E
0 1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8 9
0 2 4 6 8
1 3 5 7 9
1 2 4 5 8
3 4 5 6 9
9 8 1 2 3
7 6 1 4 0
0 8 2 1 9
1 0 5 3 2

I would like to count the number of consecutive times each number appears (to a max of 9 consecutive times in a row). So, from my example above:

Number 1 appears:
1 consecutive time = 1 (appears in row 1)
2 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 4 & 5)
3 consecutive times = 0
4 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 7, 8, 9 & 10)

Number 2 appears:
1 consecutive time = 4 (appears in row 1, row 3, row 5 & row 7)
2 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 9 & 10)
3 consecutive times = 0
4 consecutive times = 0

Number 5 appears:
1 consecutive time = 2 (appears in row 2 & row 10)
2 consecutive times = 0
3 consecutive times = 1 (appears in rows 4, 5 & 6)
4 consecutive times = 0

and so on....
