Hi Guys, I need to create a Macro that can Loop down Column E find a Duplicate ID and cut and paste that line onto a different tab. The Duplicate ID must have a 0 or blank space in Column F so the correct ID is left behind. Below you see the column "FO MTM" has a blank space and  2 exact numbers in the "GBO ID" column, the 2nd row need to be cut and paste to a tab called "Exceptions". Can anyone help? I enclose an attachment of the actual Rec


Book      Currency      Trade ID                     GBO ID                   FO MTM                        GL MTM
GFALCOFRAM      GBP      6530805      3811642.28      315,443      315,443
GFALCOFRAM      GBP      6416721      3811642.28            315,443

This macro assumes that the duplicate is immediately below the one to be kept.

Sub movedups()
    Dim cel As Range
    Dim i As Long
    For i = Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row To 4 Step -1
        Set cel = Range("E" & i)
        cel.Select
        If cel.Value <> "" And cel.Value = cel.Offset(-1).Value And (cel.Offset(, 1) = 0 Or cel.Offset(, 1) = "") Then
            cel.EntireRow.Copy Sheet2.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
            cel.EntireRow.Delete
        End If
    Next i
End Sub

Hi, the file is 50,000 rows of data and is not necessarily below but could be 10,000 rows away or could be above the genuine trade ID. Could you adapt your code?

Try

Sub movedups()
    Dim cel As Range
    Dim i As Long
    For i = Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row To 4 Step -1
        Set cel = Range("E" & i)
        cel.Select
        If cel.Value <> "" And WorksheetFunction.CountIf(cel.EntireColumn, cel.Value) > 1 And (cel.Offset(, 1) = 0 Or cel.Offset(, 1) = "") Then
        Stop
            cel.EntireRow.Copy Sheet2.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
            cel.EntireRow.Delete
        End If
    Next i
End Sub

What does "Sheet2Range" refer to? I would like to cut the duplicate Ids and paste it to a tab called "Exceptions"

Change

            cel.EntireRow.Copy Sheet2.Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)

to

            cel.EntireRow.Copy Sheets("Exceptions").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Offset(1)

Actually, how can I adapt the code so it Pastes the Duplicates into the Range ("P4") in the
same tab?

Either this or insert a tab in the TEXT file and call the Tab "Exceptions". How do I do this?
