Hi
Is there a way for me to return me to find duplicate unique identifiers in a table.

So for example say we have the the following fields in a table i.e. ID, ClientID, Name

Lets say ClientId is a unqiueIdentifer and i want to return all clientids which are contained in the table more than once?

Thanks
Webbo
