Hello,

During many imports my customer imported  the same companies many times.

e.g.

Company 1
Company 2
Company 3
Company 1
Company 2
Company 3
Company 2
Company 3
Company 3

I need to delete them so as only the last should remain from each company instance.
I have a timestamp in the table.

The desired result would be
Company 1
Company 2
Company 3

Thank you in advance
