I have a spreadsheet where column A is Name and column E is email address. If someone has two email addresses they are listed on 2 rows. I need to delete the duplicate row but first I need to move the second email address to a new column in the prior row. How can I do this for hundreds of rows.

Hi,

pls try
Sub macro()
With ActiveSheet.Sort
    .SortFields.Clear
    .SortFields.Add Key:=Range("A1"), _
            SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    .SetRange ActiveSheet.UsedRange
    .Header = xlYes
    .MatchCase = False
    .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
    .SortMethod = xlPinYin
    .Apply
End With
For Each c In Range(Range("E2"), Range("E" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    If c.Offset(, -4) = c.Offset(-1, -4) Then
        Cells(c.Row - 1, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Offset(, 1) = c
    End If
Next
ActiveSheet.UsedRange.RemoveDuplicates Columns:=1, Header:=xlYes
End Sub
