Hello,

I have a spreadsheet (as attached) which has two tabs. One tab has a list of names in the F column. I would like to have a macro (VBA) which would look at column F and strip out all the unique names and list these on the second tab (Sheet 2) from A2 onwards.

Would this be possible?

Many thanks,

Is this what you want ?

I hv draged the formula to show on the first 100 rows if you need more here is how to do it. You click on A1 and then press F2 so you go in edit mode then you press CTRL SHIFT while holding them you press ENTER this will create an array formula. Then you drag this formula from A1 to as many rows as you want.

Hi Gowflow,

Unfortunately I need this as a VBA script as I need to do more things with it ;)

Thanks,

You can record macro. It will be like to:
   Columns("F:F").Select
    Selection.Copy
    Sheets("Sheet2").Select
    Columns("A:A").Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$A$128").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:=xlYes

Open in new window
