MySQL DB - Duplicate records

Posted on 2013-01-03

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,

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
