The Advanced Filter seemed to work; however, when I used it for the "Prod-Versions" sheet in this attachment, it is easy to see that it removed duplicates, but it left a lot of values out of the list it built in Columns C:D.  For instance, the value of "RDC" does not appear.

How do I evaluate what is in columns A and B and present the unique values in D and C? The Advanced Filter seems to be leaving a lot of records behind.
