# Remove Duplicates Within A Cell

Dec 29, 2006

Below is a typical example of the contents of one of my cells (of which I have around 500 cells):

263,330,335,430,431,435,640,700,748,750,752,800,807,901,916,917,937,944,954,953,962,266,2038,2054,20 56,2057,2058,357, 591, 800, 802, 748, 423, 801, 570, 955, 747, 940, 800, 748, 918, 800,730,579,728,307,310,577,717,939,958,713,
332,613,640,661,690, 800, 613, 332, 434, 575, 593, 904, 943, 648, 946, 947, 2079I'd like to remove duplicate entries from this cell (per cell) e.g. "800" appears several times.

We can distinguish between each entry by the comma - but how can I get Excel to look inside one specific cell at text and remove these?

## Remove Duplicates From Single Cell

Jun 2, 2007

I have a column that has duplicate information in it.

An exapmle of one of the cells is:
BL, BL, BN, BOL, BOL, CP, CP, DRE, EG, EG, LM, LM, R, RE, RE, SP, SP, W, W

I want a vba macro to go thru the column and delete the duplicates in each cell.

So this one will be:
BL, BN, BOL, CP, DRE, EG, LM, R, RE, SP, W

## Alpha String Formula - Remove Duplicates When Starting In Cell Going Downward

Aug 22, 2013

I have a string of letters in cell column L20 through L3019.

The letters are A, B, C, and R . No other letters.

I wanted to find out if it is possible to remove any duplicates when starting in cell L20 going downward.

For example:

L20 = B
L21 = A
L22 = A
L23 = B
L24 = C
L25 = C
L26 = C
L27 = C
L28 = B
L29 = R
L30 = A
L31 = C
L32 = C
L33 = C
L34 = R
L35 = R
L36 = B
L37 = B

In the range L20 through L37 all the letters have appeared so my goal is to create a formula where the outcome is BACR. Starting with the first letter B in cell L20

Cell range L20 through L37. Looking for the next letter which would be either A,C, or R. Since we already used the letter B. In this case it's the letter A
ABCR

Cell range L20 through L37. Looking for the next letter which is the C or R. In this case it's the letter C
CBRA

Finally range L20 through L37. Looking for the letter R which is in cell L29.
RACB

## Remove Duplicates

Apr 24, 2008

I have a sheet that looks like this.
JOE D.02082008/28/199 H PAnnual Increase06/05/2006
JOE D.02082008/28/1995 H PReclassification06/11/2007
JOE D.02082008/28/1995 H PReclassification02/11/2008

The name is in Column F the employee Number is the 020820 and we want to only have the latest date in the last column.

So out of this data above. The bottom one with the 2/11/2008 is the one we want to keep.
And delete those other 2.

The next group has duplicate names 10 of them. But only want to keep the most recent.

## Remove Duplicates Out Of Formula

Apr 2, 2014

I have the following formula

=IFERROR(INDEX('Data - CURRENT'!\$B\$2:\$B\$2500,MATCH(LARGE('Data - CURRENT'!\$BA\$2:\$BA\$2500,ROW(A1)),
'Data - CURRENT'!\$BA\$2:\$BA\$2500,0)),"")

This worked wonderfully until a duplicate crept in to Column B. Now there is the potential for many more duplicates. Column B holds an 8 digit numerical number. I am just struggling to add in a parameter that ignores any duplicates that have been added

## Remove Duplicates From A Column

Jan 13, 2008

how can i remove duplictes from a colum. For example:

Column C:

A;B;C;A;D;E;A;G;B *(A is three times here and B two times!)
F;G;H;I;F*(F is here two times)

I would like to have the duplicates removed from each cell in column C so that each member is unique in the cell. The example would then look like:

Column C: (after removing the dupplicates A and B in first cell and F in second cell)

A;B;C;D;E;G
F;G;H;I

## Remove Duplicates From Col.A And Merge Col.B

Aug 10, 2008

i have a wordlist containing about 0.5 Million words in col.A and Millions of meanings in Col.B. Now in Col. A there are many duplicates. I would like to make one cell of all duplicates in col.A and put their meanings together in B with seperator ";". Its very important that there are no duplicates in Col. B.

For example:
Col. A Col.B
w1 m1;m2;m3
w1 m1;m2;m5
w2 m23;m24
w2 m50

Now after running the macro the list should look like:

Col.A Col.B
w1 m1;m2;m3;m5
w2 m23;m24;m50

The words in col. A are alphabetically ordered and all the duplicates are followed by each other.

Feb 24, 2012

I am trying to remove duplicates from a submitted list of data with alphanumeric data such as BK123034, WKD 4754 in the list. Visually, I can see that there are duplicates when I sort the list into order. However, when I use 'remove duplicates', it says that there are none. I have tried formatting all as text, numbers and general, but no better. I have also tried the formula =or(a1=A2, A2=A3) and they all come out as false.

## Remove The Duplicates Values

Oct 18, 2006

We are having a problem merging our databases. We are using excel to streamline databases to be included in our GiftWorks database of donors. However we are having the problem of many duplicates with multiple addresses, contact info etc. I have come to find that there is no way other than the "bitch work" method of going thru by hand in the GiftWorks database to find duplicates. However we can make a smartlist and export to excel and then perhaps merge the new info with this one. I was just wondering if there is anyway to sort duplicates and merge their information by first name/last name.

## Remove Consecutive Duplicates Only

Dec 19, 2006

I'm having a "challenge" in Excel.

I've got two columns in Excel with data in it.

Column A is unique data and consists out of date and time and Column B is data which indicates the state of an application.

So every task the application is performing gets logged every minute so Column B is showing duplicates.

Now what I want to do is to remove the duplicate actions but only if they are subsequent. So an action can happen several times a day but only once in an hour. But if I use the AdvancedFilter with the Unique Records only, it removes all the duplicates also from later on the day and that is not the intention.

So I would need a macro for it. My problem is that I somewhat know how it should work, but I don't know the syntax to write it. So it should be something like If the data on the next line is the same as the current, then remove the next line, if not go to the next line and check again.

## Conditionally Remove Duplicates

Dec 4, 2007

Attach is a Demo –Sample file

The formatting etc is same for real file – Note that the real file will have up to 65000 rows of data like this.

My Problem is to remove conditionally some duplicate rows - however my difficulty trying to thinking about this is that I cant use a unique value comparison as the columns I to L they all are X s so when a X is present in columns I to L need to be conditional on comparing values in other columns

What is needed is to repeat remove duplications in each of the four columns I to L (titled E1, E2, E3, and E4 ) when there is a match of string in columns F, G and M – but don’t delete if on same row there is a value in columns O to S (E5 to E9).

In the demo file – I have highlighted in yellow the rows that would be removed if the code works.

So;
IF there is an “X” in column “I” (E1) and the string in column F (personnel number) is the same as row below it, and the string in column G (person name) is same as below it, and the string in Column M (Team number) is same as row below it, and there are NO values in columns O to S (E5 to E9) on same row – Then delete the duplicate/s – retain only one.

Repeat for columns J, K and L (E2, E3 and E4)

## Formula To Remove Duplicates From A List?

Apr 3, 2014

I have a list of what we call "model codes" which are is a similar format to "DFS41FC57DD728NCWRY3"

The list could be 6000 rows but may contain hundreds of duplicates and may only contain 50 different model codes

I am looking for a formula that will populate a new column (B in the example below) with only the individual codes (unfortunately the xls example I created wont upload)

COLUMN A COLUMN B
DFS41FC57DD728N3SRY3 DFS41FC57DD728N3SRY3
DFS41FC57DD728N3SRY3 DFS41FC57DD728NCWRY3

## Remove Positive And Negative Duplicates?

May 2, 2014

I am currently working on a project whereby I need to remove duplicate rows (containing both a positive and negative number). I've tried a few different formulas and macros but I'm running into a problem. It's wanting to remove ALL positive matches instead of one.

For example: Column BH has -4,4,4,-2,2,-1,1,

I need it remove those numbers that cross cancel and keep the one that doesn't have a partner.

Side note: Column A has an owner code, Column B a well code, and BH is the amount due.
