    Re: Extracting Unique Lists (2007)

    I'd paste the relevant columns from Sheet 2 below the corresponding columns in Sheet1, then use Data | Filter | Advanced Filter with the "Copy to" and "Unique records only" options to Sheet3.
    You can then use MATCH and INDEX to get the addresses.

    Warning: you'll have to massage the data before doing so, otherwise Excel will see J Abel as different from J. Abel. The problem is even worse with PA Abraham and P. Abraham.
