Removing Duplicate Fields

Jul 24, 2009

I need to restructure a report that I have imported into Excel.

My columns are titled (from left to right):

Company Name, Account ID, Client Code, Billing Street, Contact Name, Contact Number

There are many rows per Company because every company has many contacts. As a result, for each company, the Company Name, Account ID, Client Code, etc. columns with their associated information in the fields underneath the heading are repeated unnecessarily.

How can I delete the extraneous fields of information (leaving one Company Name field filled out per company) without having to go in an manually deleting them (which would take hours)

Removing Duplicate Entries From Two Lists?

Aug 15, 2008

Let's say I have two mailing lists, A and B.



Now I want to create list C, a modified version of list B, which is made up of everybody in list B, EXCEPT for those people who are also present in list A (in this case, Jeff and Cindy).

So basically list C should look like this:


What would be the fastest and most efficient way to create list C?

Removing Specific Duplicate Values?

Apr 2, 2013

I have a data set that I add information to weekly. I then add a value at the end of the row, example active or inactive. I've found that, when using the remove duplicate function, it does not always remove the second instance, resulting in a loss of that added data(active or inactive). So I guess my question is, can I somehow specify which instance of duplicated data is removed?

Removing Unwanted Duplicate Lines

Sep 16, 2009

Hi, I have a report that has multiple lines for the same job with notes of issues and solutions. Each line has a date assosiated with it.

What I need to do is to delete all of the notes apart from the first one. I have attached a sample of the data and highlighted the rows that need to be kept.

I have left the data in it's raw form as it is not always extracted in date order.

Can anyone help me out with a Macro that will sort the data and remove all rows apart from the earliest note per job number?

Removing Duplicate Rows, But Keeping The First One.

Feb 28, 2008

I have an excel spreadsheet with approximately 10000 rows. There are approximately 10 columns...

Column A - person's ID number
Column B - name
Column C - Street Address
Column D - City
Column E - State


It being such a large list there are many many duplicates (it was pulled from a bunch of different excel spreadsheets and combined into one via copy and pasting one document into the other).

I figured out a way to have excel highlight the duplicates in a different color... but scrolling through 10k people and deleting the duplicates is obviously very tedious (approx 40% of the spreadsheet is duplicates).

Is there a way to sort out the duplicates (via their ID number, column A) so that there are no repeats? I want to get rid of the 2nd/3rd/4th (etc) occurance of the person's information but I was to obviously keep the first occurance.

I tried using Advanced Filter but I must have done something wrong because it shrunk the list too far down.

Removing Duplicate Data Based On Conditions

Oct 10, 2011

Currently trying to solve a niggling issue with removing duplicate row data from competition entry databases using the following code...

Sub remove_duplicates()

Dim lastrow As Long
Dim i As Long, j As Long

On Error GoTo errhandler

Columns("A:G").Sort Key1:=Range("A2"), Order1:=xlAscending, Key2:=Range("B2") _

[Code] ......

'MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub

What I need to happen is for duplicates to be based on both the name and email matching (columns A + B) and then remove all duplicate rows, whilst ignoring but preserving the content in columns C,D,E and F on those rows that remain. Column G contains either "Yes" or "No" depending on a users membership status. Sometimes duplicated data will contain identical name and email address but have different membership status in column G where someone was logged in when submitting a form the first time, and then logged out the next (potentially a mixture of the two over multiple times). Therefore I need any duplicate users who have different values in the G column throughout the database to be detected by the macro and we must ensure that the single row retained in the final non-duplicated list displays "Yes" in column G for that user.

Duplicate users who are always "yes" or always "no" work fine, its only the ones with mixed values for column G that need to be analysed and their return forced as Yes in the final list.

The final list should preserve the original column structure and thus be only one row per unique user.

The above code appeared to work the first time with a sample file, but when running the macro on one of my full size lists (3k - 5k rows) it returns 2 rows for each user who started off as a mixture of Yes/No... ?

Both rows will say yes in column G (so that part is correct!) but I have to re-run the macro again on the same dataset for it to remove the duplicate yes rows to get the list as it finally should be!

So I can achieve the result by running it twice, but this is a bit of a cheating way to do it and also the next stage after this involves something similar across multiple worksheets so I need something rock solid to build upon!

Removing Duplicate Values From Column - Case Sensitive

May 22, 2013

Suppose I have some data in a column like below


I need a macro or excel formula so that it will remove duplicate products- case sensitive(removing all duplicate prod using using excel,that i know.) i.e. it should not consider Blue BLUE as duplicate. only consider Blue Blue as duplicate.

So the macro should work same as data -> remove duplicate function already exists in excel, except it will be case sensitive..

Removing Duplicate Entries From List Of Names And Addresses

Jun 12, 2006

I'm trying to remove duplicate entries from a list of names & addresses.

What I'm after is some VBA code which will examine row by row the 'post code' field and the 'Full name' field and highlight/delete duplicate entries.

Its best illustrated by an example

Full Name Address Postcode
Mr C. Verougstraete 6 somone st, Leicester HY8 9YK
Mrs R. Brazier 8 high st HY9 9LK
Mr C. Verougstraete 6 somone st, HY8 9YK

The last record is obviously a duplicate of row 2 therefore will be removed.

Removing Blank Lines From String

Feb 17, 2010

I have a texfile that populates a textbox on a userform. I would like to remove all blank lines in the string including those at the end if they exist, before populating the textbox. I'm reading the entire file at once into the string, not line by line.

Is there any way to edit the string called Text to remove the blank lines before populating the textbox? I'm looking for 2 carriage return characters in a row, and if so then remove one of them, but I don't know how to code that. This is in the userform activate section. If I read the textfile line by line, I don't know how to populate the textbox that way and remove the blank lines.

Removing Part Of Text From A String

Feb 11, 2013

I belong to a fantasy cycling league and after every race, I copy the race results to award each rider their points for the day. The site I visit most frequently lists the riders results in this format:

1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00
2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong etc... 4:06:00

I usually copy the results to my spreadsheet then calculate each riders points.

The'results end up looking like this in Excel:

1. Alberto Contador (Spa) Team Sax Bank Tinkoff 4:05:00
2. Lance Armstrong (USA) Team Livestrong 4:06:00

So, the data ends up in 3 cells. The position in one cell, the rider and their nationality and their team in another, and the time of arrival in another cell

Is there a way in Excel where I can get rid of or delete all the data after a rider's name?

I usually end up pasting the rider information to Word, then replacing the (***) with a tab symbol, then pasting back to Excel and get rid of the data that's after the name by deleting the cells to which that data was transferred.

Is there an easier way to do this in Excel, or a macro I can create?...

Removing A Character From A Barcode String

Sep 23, 2009

The barcode lablels all have the following format: A318639....that is a letter followed by six numbers.

When I scan the barcodes into any cell, a dollar sign "$" appears in the front of the barcode string that is entered into the cell. The dollar sign is not a relevant part of the string of characters in the barcode label.

What I am looking for is a solution where upon scanning a barcode into any cell, the dollar sign is removed from the front of my string and I am left with just the seven character string which is shown above.

I have experimented with the Data Validation tool by trying to limit the number of characters that are allowed in a cell to seven characters, but that has not actually removed any characters from my data string.

Removing Dash From Text Number String?

Oct 3, 2010

We often get spreadsheets from our customer that are formatted with both comma and dash combinations. We would like to only have the comma seperation.

R1, R2, R3-R5, R30

R1, R2, R3, R4, R5, R30

There is usually only one alpha character but sometimes more. Example: CR1, CR2, CR3-CR5.

The following macro works great if there are no alpha characters. how to solve the alpha/numeric combination?

Function Nums(rng As Range) As String
Dim adnum As Integer, n As Integer, num, Txt As String
num = Split(rng, ",")

Removing Seconds In Date / Time String?

Sep 26, 2013

I need a macro, if possible, to remove the seconds in a date/time string.

I can format the cells to remove the seconds, but the actual value still contains the seconds. For example:

The cell shows 9/24/2013 19:21 but the formula bar shows 9/24/2013 7:21:17 PM.

I need to remove the seconds so I can us the time in an averageifs formula as a criteria.

I would like a macro because I want to do other manipulations of the spreadsheet with the idea of importing the data at some point into a database.

If I can automate it, or at least decrease tha amount of time I use to get the data in the correct format.

Remove Duplicate Text From A String In A Row Of Cells

Sep 29, 2009

I have a large worksheet and I managed to duplicate data in a row of cells.

MOT 1/F1,
B/P 1f2,
B/P 1f2

In the string above I need to delete all text from the first comma to the end of the string so the above would look like:

MOT 1/F1

This is an example in one cell of many. The text prior to the first comma may or may not repeat and it is the only portion of the text I wish to keep. The first comma is not always in the same place (character count position).

Mark Duplicate Values :: Insert Word Duplicate Next To Row

Jun 12, 2008

I am using the following macro to insert the word "Duplicate" in the first blank column next to a duplicate row. My data is sorted by the first column. Data Example:

12345 a
11111 b
23123 b

Here is the macro I am using and it does not work. It marks the first duplicate it finds then goes into an infinite loop. Any Idea where I went wrong?

Sub MarkDupes()
x = ActiveCell.Row
y = x + 1
Do While Cells(x, 1).Value <> ""
Do While Cells(y, 1).Value <> ""
If (Cells(x, 1).Value = Cells(y, 1).Value) Then
Cells(y, 3).Formula = "Duplicate"
y = y + 1
End If
x = x + 1
y = x + 1
End Sub

Sum Duplicate Values Then Delete Duplicate Rows

Jan 5, 2004

I have 4 columns in my spreadsheet. I am trying to find any duplicates that may exist in Col A, sum values in Col D, then delete the entire row. So far my sheet before I run my vba code is this.

Col A

Col D

After my code is run, I need for my spreadsheet to look like this

Col A

Col D

I have some code but I still need to do a considerable amount of tweaking to it. Currently my code is only deleting the duplicate values in Col A. I am having difficulty summing the values in Col D as well as deleting the entire row.

Here is my code thus far....

Public Sub FindDuplicates()
For RwCnt = 1 To (Worksheets(1).Cells(65536, 1).End(xlUp).Row)
SrchValue = Worksheets(1).Cells(RwCnt, 1).Value
If Len(Trim(SrchValue)) > 0 Then
With Worksheets(1).Range("a1:a" & Cells(65536, 1).End(xlUp).Row)
