You can identify the first item where duplicates occur later with:
=IF(AND(COUNTIF(A1,A:A)>1,MATCH(A1,A:A,0)=ROW(A1)),"First","")
The above formula returns "First" on the first occurrence of a value from column A that has duplicates.

If you want a value from column H on that same row, you could use:
=IF(AND(COUNTIF(A1,A:A)>1,MATCH(A1,A:A,0)=ROW(A1)),H1,"")

Susan Harkins discusses how to copy unique records (only the first time each number appears in column A) to a different worksheet using Advanced Filter. She also presents a formula to determine if a cell in column A is duplicated so you can use it for Conditional Formatting.

<<The discussion in italics was added to comply with a new policy by Experts Exchange to eliminate blind links. A blind link is one in which there is no discussion other than "refer". The reason for the new policy is to improve the quality of discussion and Google page rank.

Blind links are subject to automatic deletion anywhere in Experts Exchange, but in the Excel TA, we are trying to show by example how it ought to be done.
