Create Delete Duplicate Macro

I am trying to write a macro in excel, but I would like to do all this in access because I am taking this table from access pasting into excel and trying to delete duplicates by choosing the unique records.  The trouble I am facing is that even when I advance filter for unique records, it does not delete all duplicates.  

I have a table:

Date   ID   Facility
xxx   xx   xxx

I want to find any duplicates in the ID column then delete the entire row where the duplication is found.  Can I do this?

Hi Namrac00,

You should develop a query that returns only unique rows, and export that query to Excel.


tell u what, use the query wizard to produce a find duplicates query

then take that query, nick the WHERE clause from it
and do this

DELETE FROM table ....
