    how do I delete duplicate rows (97)

    How do I delete duplicate rows? My file has over 25,000 rows.

    I'm sure the answer is in the archives but that can't be searched at the moment which is a pity.

    Re: how do I delete duplicate rows (97)

    If you have a table with a database-like structure (i.e. first row contains column names, subsequent rows contain data), you can use Data | Filter | Advanced Filter..., Copy to another location, Unique records only.

    Otherwise, you probably need some code. If so, do you want to remove rows that are complete duplicates, or duplicate on some specific columns?

    It worked, many thanks. I had a simple data base and your first piece of advice was adequate.
