I get a daily report generated in Excel from our workflow system. The report lists all the work orders in Column A, and the date/time various tasks were completed for that work order in Column D. Column A can include duplicate work order entries for those work orders that required a variety of tasks to be completed.
I need a macro that removes all duplicate work orders as follows:
Determines the latest date/time stamp in Column D for any duplicate work orders
Removes all entries for that work order that have older date/time stamps
Retains a single entry only for that work order that has the latest date/time stamp
I have attached a sample of the report. I have applied conditional formatting in Column A to highlight the duplicate work orders. In Column D, where there are duplicates in Column A, I have highlighted in yellow the rows that should be retained (as they have the latest date/time stamp) after the duplicate work orders are removed to illustrate the results I am hoping for.
