hi,

I need help to add sequence numbers for duplicate names

For Example:

Column A   Column B
Thomas             0
Thomas             1
Larry                  0
Larry                  1
Larry                  2


I have a large excel file that has multiple name

Either a formula or VBscript would work, but I don't know how to start it
