I have an Excel file with a column named "Category".  In that column are various text strings.  In some lines just one unique text string.  In other lines more than one of the same text string.

For Example:

Category
Football
Baseball
Baseball
Soccer
Soccer

What I would like to see in a separate tab is a list of unique text strings.  Using the above example it would look like:

Football
Baseball
Soccer

How can this be done?
