Hi Expert,
I have thousands lines that have two columns:A,B.
I have a number of id in column A that are duplicate.
How can I remove those duplicate lines?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use my Duplicate Master addin at this EE article, 

to delete either,
- just the cells (erasing contents)
- the entire row

Pls provide a sample file if you need further help

Hello jtran

In Excel 2007 highlight your data table and click Remove Duplicates on the Data ribbon.

In Excel 2003, highlight your data table, click Data - Filter - Advanced Filter - tick "Unique records only" - OK. Then with the selection still highlighted hit F5 - Special - Visible cells only - OK - Copy the selection,  and paste somewhere else.

cheers, teylyn
