Dear Experts,

I have a database with duplicate entries.  Can you help me identify and tag those entries.  See attached sample worksheet.  I want an X in column AA for each entry that is duplicated.  (Reference formula in cell H73 that counts my non-duplicate entries <thanks to barryhoudini>.)

Thanks,
Gary

Hello Gary, try this formula in AA8 copied down

=IF(SUMPRODUCT((E8=E$8:E8)*(F8=F$8:F8)*(H8=H$8:H8)*(X8=X$8:X8))>1,"X","")

regards, barry
