Consolidate duplicate rows with String as DATA

Last Modified: 2015-08-17
Hi guys,
I'm working on a certain automation process, but I've hit a little snag, I have a worksheet called "tabvNetwork" Which holds two columns, one is the name, the other is IP Addresses assigned to that name.
Because of the way the information is extracted to the excel, many of the rows are duplicated on the name field NOT on the IP Address field.
I need to do, is to make sure each name appears only once, but without losing any of the IP Addresses, while keeping the format (comma and single space between every two ip addresses).
I tried doing it with concatenate, but then I have to know in advance how many IP Addresses there's in any row, and even then It comes out very clumsy and cumbersome.
I'm attaching an example file with the actual names changes for obvious reasons.
