Hi all,

I have a MYSQL Db, there's a table with a field name of 'Email'.

How would I find out if there's any duplicates in that table, and if so, what they are?  I know querying DISTINCT will stop dups from showing, but I want to get rid of them, not just suppress them.

Thanks,

In oracle I'd use rowid to clean it up,in mysql something similar
create view mydups as
select val1.val2,count(1) from table
group by  val1.val2,
having count(1) >1

where d1.val1=d2.val1 and d1.val2=d2.val2
and d1.uniq_rowid>d2.uniq_rowid
