Removing duplicate WOs in spreadsheet, ensuring that row with earliest date/time stamp is the row to be retained

Last Modified: 2017-11-07
I receive a master report on a daily basis that has a number of duplicate WOs. I would like to have a macro that would remove all the duplicate WOs in a selective manner, in that it always retains the WO with earliest date/time stamp in column G.

I have attached a sample report with the duplicate WOs highlighted in red in Column A, and have highlighted in yellow, in the first section of the report as an illustration, the unique WOs to be retained once the macro is run according to the criteria outlined above.

I hope I have provided enough information...

Cheers,
Andrea
