VB6 - Delete duplicated values in column 25


I would like to delete any duplication values that would show in column 25, and just leave One record of each.

It should keep the first row of each records and delete the entire row of each duplication.

text may not be sorted also based on column 25

How can i do that as i'm having both, letters and numbers.

Thanks for your help.

Can there be 3 (or more) of the same value?
Wilder1626Author Commented:
yes. it even happen that i had 51 records with the same values. It is never the same values and counts.

In the example i gave on the attachment project, 2 values are showing more than once.

                intFoundRow = intRow
                If intFound > 1 Then
