Can anyone help?

Nike,

I can think about 3 possible views to do this...

A. Either Build a Pivot for it and then instead of SUM Use Average and first group by  Building and then unit since all your values are same you will get the right result as in 1 record only.

B. In Column-G2 Use this formula...and drag this till bottom...
=if(sumproduct((C$1:C2=C2)*(D$1:D2=D2))=1,1,0)

Then use this Column to get your values where the value is equal to 1.. as you just filter for unique records..

C. Write a user defined function to do what you are looking for...

Do you have anything for a custom function that you could start me off with?
