I have a stacked column of numbers (10, 1058, 1090, 1090, 1328....) and I want to be able to see where my duplicates are with an added indentifier in the column to the right.  How do I accomplish this?

You could use a Vlookup in column B that tries to find the value in column a in all the rows below the current row.

You can use conditional format, and use the find duplicates rule.
Once you do this, you can sort the values based on the format you use at the conditional format.
