Hi.  I have a database that stores information about equipment, maintenance and costing for my business.  Users entered duplicate maintenance records for various equipment by mistake and now want to clean it up.  Maintenance table consists of assetID, MaintID, MaintDescr, ReqDate, DueDate, etc...   I need to find any records where both the assetID and MaintDescr fields are the same.  I tried the built in duplicate query function in access2010 and it returned a lot of false positives.  I tried manipulating the SQL command with my limited knowledge of SQL and had no luck.  Any ideas how I could find al of these duplicate records?  thanks
