Could an expert provide me with VBA to move duplicates please.

I have a spreadsheet that has a header row in row 1

columns go from A to T

Number of rows will change

I need to look in column H for any duplicates and wherever I find one I need to move all of the items [complete row] to a new worksheet. [Named Duplicates] I also need the header row from Sheet1 copied onto the sheet named Duplicates.

So, if in Cell H3 I find abcdef and abcdef is also in H4 I need to move both rows to the sheet named duplicates

if in Cell H3 I find abcdef and abcdef is also in H4 and H5 and H6 I need to move all rows to the sheet named duplicates

Many thanks

Here it is:

Sub MoveDups()
Dim lLastRow As Long, lRowLoop As Long

lLastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

Range("u2:u" & lLastRow).FormulaR1C1 = "=countif(R2C8:R" & lLastRow & "C8,RC8)"
Range("u2:u" & lLastRow).NumberFormat = "0"

With Range("A1:u" & lLastRow)
    .AutoFilter
    .AutoFilter field:=21, Criteria1:=">1"
    .Resize(, 20).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).Copy Sheets("Duplicates").Cells(1, 1)
    .Offset(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    .AutoFilter
End With

Columns("U").Delete

End Sub

Have we not seen this same question before, just recently???

Other option would be to use Advanced Filter function to separate unique values to their own sheet.

Thanks

The previous question was only to move one of the duplicates this is to move all items where there is a duplicate

so similar but different
