I have two columns of email addresses and I want to make sure that between these two columns there are no duplicates. Can the excel gurus please help.
I attached a test doc that I am using - I can't seem to get it to work.

Hello all! What I am trying a accomplish is to compare two columns of email addresses to find the duplicates. Then, I need to be able to sort or somehow organize the identified duplicates. There are 2,369 addresses in column A, and 5,360 in column B.
I have tried a number of formulas found online, but nothing seems to work. I'm a novice at Excel functions and would greatly appreciate help with this.
I need some help modifying a formula. In the attached spreadsheet, have 1 column with email addresses separated by a semi-colin. Sometimes, the email addresses are the same. With some help from some great online friends, a formula was created to look at the 2 email addresses in the same cell, decide if they are duplicates, and return only one email address (without the semi-colin).
This formula has been working great until recently as the cells can now have 3 email addresses in the same cell. (don't worry there won't be more that 3). Is there a way to modify the formula to look and see if the second and third email addresses are duplicates?
I need your help! I have a spreadsheet that contains 1-3 email addresses in a single cell separated by a semi-colin. Some of the email addresses are duplicated. Is there a formula/function that can look at the email addresses in the cell, and return the email addresses removing the duplicates?
I have attached a sample document with my desired outcome.
Thanks in advance for the help,
Hello. This is probably a pretty basic question.
I'm trying to compare two columns of email addresses to check for duplicates and then tally those duplicates. It's only duplicates that I'm interested in.
I've tried a nested IF function that I got from a Microsoft article. Here it is:
I think it's wrong because the results make no sense.
The columns are of unequal length, with about three times the number of addresses in one column compared to the other. I want to see how many of the addresses in the shorter column are duplicated in the longer one.
I've been fiddling with it for a while now and have managed to confuse myself, so I'd be very grateful if someone could either correct my function or perhaps suggest an alternative method to achieve the same result.
I've been trying to get my head around this since long but cannot quite figure it how to do it.
I have an Excel sheet with a single column that lists about a 1500 email addresses. There are a lot of duplicates, and I want to count them.
The output I need to get should look like this:
EmailAddress -------------- # of Occurences
Email Add 1 ---------------------------- 4
Email Add 2 ---------------------------- 4
Email Add 3 ---------------------------- 4
Email Add 4 ---------------------------- 3
Email Add 5 ---------------------------- 3
Email Add 6 ---------------------------- 3
Email Add 7 ---------------------------- 2
Email Add 8 ---------------------------- 2
Email Add 9 ---------------------------- 2
Email Add 10 -------------------------- 2
Email Add 11 ------------------------- 1
Email Add 12 -------------------------- 1
So basically, counting the number of times an email address is in the column and arranging them in descending order.
I was able to highlight the duplicates using Conditional Formatting and CountIf, but I cannot figure out how to get the above output.
Any ideas on how to do this are appreciated
hello, New to the forums. Wow what a great wealth of knowledge here. Glad I found it.
Anyway my question is. I work with two reports everyday and they both share a column that have similar but one holds a little more data.
For right now I've been cutting and pasting one column and inserting it into the other report. Sort in ascending order and eye it up to find duplicates.
I've tried to use some formulas that I've found on here but they don't seem to work or I'm not using them right.
So right now I have columns H & I that hold the same data but column I has 20-30 cells that are not duplicates. So both columns are not the same size. I am trying to find a formula that
Comapares column I with column H and identifies the duplicates.
OR Even better a formula that combines column H & I and deletes the duplicates.
Is this possible or is there an easier way to get around this?
How do you find unspecific duplicates? I wanted to sort a column of email addresses and go through and find the ones that were in there twice. How would I go about doing that? I know the =countif function to see if there are more than one of the specific email addresses, but I'd like it to show me the ones that are repeats. Anyone that knows that function? or has a roundabout way of achieving what I need? Thank you!
Hello EXCEL GURUS,
I would like to know if anyone has a formula to build email addresses in Excel. I have a spreadsheet with 3 columns (company. contact, domain) and need to make 2 additional columns (highlighted) that contain 2 email addresses. See pic below.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
Have a quick questions. i have columns A and B. in column A i have first name in column B i have email addresses. i already removed Duplicates using the automatic function in the Data menu.
however, i still have some duplicates because the email address may appear twice where someone has 2 different name types, like Andy and Andrew. So for example, i have have this email twice in column B: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com because it s listed in the firstname column once as Andy and another time as ANdrew. I would like to put in a formula that deletes one of the rows, i don't want to send someone an email twice. i really don't care if it picks Andy or Andrew, i just don't want the email to appear twice. Any ideas? i started to think it would be done w the VLOOKUP function but i just cannot figure it out. if anyone can help let me know. Thanks!!
In column A, I have 500 email addresses.
In column B, I have 35 email addresses.
I want to see if ANY of the 35 email addresses in column B exist in Column A and if they do, remove them from column A.
A while back, someone suggested:
=Isnumber(Match(A1,X:X,0)) will return TRUE if value in A1 matches anything in column X... then you can delete the ones where TRUE shows.
But for some reason, EVERYTHING is returning as false. Can someone please help me a) by giving me a new formula to try? or b) help me troubleshoot what's wrong with the above formula where I'm only getting False results?
P.S. I already know that the 35 email addresses in column B are duplicated in the larger list of column A with 500 email addresses. I just don't want to have to go and delete manually by using the "find" feature. Thanks in advance!
I have 2 columns of email addresses (from two sources)
I need to compare the two to eliminate duplicate email addresses.
What formula can I use to search Column A and if it contains the same email address that is in Column B to bring back "duplicate"
I have about 1200 rows of email addresses. 2 columns (column A from group 1 and column B from group 2) Basically trying to consolidate into one list with no duplicates.
I have a list of about 5,000 words I need to check for duplicates in Excel. At least 5% of them are duplicates. And of course, I need to keep the words correlated with the PPC price, which makes up the other of 2 columns (see attached screenshot).
Is there any very simple way to do this in Excel? All the tutorials I have seen online involve formulas and mathematics and look like hieroglyphics to me. I can't imagine that a program this powerful cannot easily find duplicates.
I have a macro that deletes a row if there are duplicates, but it is just duplicates based on one particular columns. So, how do I delete the duplicate rows if two columns are the same in more than one row. And there are several columns but the other columns in the spreadsheet are unique. These two columns can contain duplicates. I attached a copy of a test spreadsheet. Thanks in advance.
Hi, after reading through many posts and web articles tutorials etc I cannot seem to find my answer.
My issue is that i have 2 columns, A & B
B is a much shorter list than A
I am trying to find everything From B that appears in A. Perferably by hilighting. However, there are duplicates within A, so highlight duplicates will not work. I am using Office 2007.....
Just to reiterate an example:
Column a has: 1,2,3,4,4,3,2,2,2,1
column B has: 2,3
I want to just highlight the 2's and 3's in A without highlighting the duplicates 4 and 1......
any advice would be appreciated but remember that i am working with about 30,000 in A and 1200 in B...
Basically I have a list of 16,000 email addresses. I then have a separate list of 5,000, all of which don't work. What I need to do is delete any email address in the large list which appears in the small list. Deleting duplicates doesn't work. I can't think of a way of doing it other than going through and individually deleting email address.
I have two lists. Each have 3 columns. First Name, Last Name, Email Address
I can take the one workbook list, and add into the other to have one large list.
1. I would like to highlight all the rows that have identical data.
I'm using Excel 2007. I found a way to Highlight duplicates, but it only does it for one column (works great when highlingting duplicate emails). However, sometimes there are no email addresses listed, so I want to see the first & last name combo duplicates.
Example: (Both would count as a duplicate)
Ricky Henderson User@domain.com
Ricky Henderson User@domain.com
John Smith (Blank)
John Smith (Blank)
2. I would like to then count how many duplicates there are. (Above example being 2 duplicates)
3. I then would like to have an option to delete all the duplicates.
This would allow me to see who is duplicated, know how many were duplicated, and delete the duplications.
Ill take an add-in, macro forumula, any suggestions you have. Thanks for the help!
I'm looking for a formula to remove duplicates that may be formatted across 25 columns.
B1, C1, D1...Z1
The data could span across all 25 columns or just 1 or 2. What I am looking for is a formula I can start say at C25 & drag down to C50 that will ignore duplicates of B1, C1, D1...Z1 & yet not leave any blank rows between that data.
Columns B1, C1, D1, E1, F1, G1 contain Bob, Bob, Sam, Sam, Bob, Ted
Beginning at C25-28 would contain Bob, Sam, Ted
Does this make sense? p.s. I'm using Excel 2003.
I have a list of email addresses which I would like to find only the
new email addresses within the list. Inside of my Excel worksheet I
have a row of e-mail addresses. Some of the names are duplicated which
tells me they already exist somewhere in the row. I wish to display
only the new names. Can you tell me how this can be done in Excel?
Thanks in advance for your assistance,
I am have a great deal of trouble. I have to compare over 10000 numbers between two columns. I cannot find a formula that will compare the two rows instead of comparing the information in just that one row. My point is say i have 10,000 numbers in one column and 10,000 in another column. I need to compare the two columns and make sure there are no duplicates between them. Can you help?? I have beensearching through threads and i cant find anything that works!
5 --------2 *
2 --------3 *
4 --------1 *
5 ---------3 *
how can i find these duplicates without looking through each one?
I have merged about 20 spreadsheets into one large sheet for mail-merging purposes. Some of the sheets I have merged have addresses and e-mails whereas others only have addresses. If column D contains all the addresses and column J contains the email addresses, is there away to run a macro duplicate formula that will delete the address without the email address and keep the address with the email address?
Does this make any sense?
Here's an example describing my situation...
Column A contains a long series of unique identifiers (no duplicates).
Column B contains data (containing some duplicates).
I know how to use "Highlight Duplicates" and "Remove Duplicates" - no problem there.
I can see the duplicates in Column B.
I want to delete duplicates in Column B AND delete the cell adjacent to it in Column A.
When I select "Remove Duplicates" in column B it removes the duplicates and then shifts everything in Column B upwards - thus changing the original associations between columns A and B.
Any way to delete both values in columns A and B at the same time?
Any way to delete duplicates without the shifting of the data upwards after deletion?
I have columns:
D: First Name
F: Last Name
I need a formula or a way to find duplicates using all of these columns, so I have a sheet with 20,000 rows, if any row for all those columns has exact values, then ID them as a Duplicate in a column or something like that, please help!
is there a formula that allows me to automatically remove duplicate values in a column in excel?
Let's say i have column A which contains a list of web addresses. I need a formula that will enable me to display in column B all the unique web addresses and leave out the duplicates. i cannot use the "remove duplicates' function in excel for this as the data in column A will be changing from time to time.
I really hope someone can help me with this! Many thanks in advance!
Hi, I am new to excel been reading the forums about how to remove duplicates cells. What I need to do is I have a spreadsheet with columns A to I and will have around 3000 people listed example A will be ID#, B name, C Address and so on. I am able to highlight and make a list of duplicates of column "A" but I need to make a list of all the duplicates info, ID,name,address etc. Is this even possible? Like I said I am real new to this stuff, and need help.
Thanks in advance
I am trying to remove duplicates from a sheet with 4 columns in Excel 07. Although all columns will have duplicates I only want Excel to analyse Column 1 for duplicates and when found delete the entire row. If I select Column 1 and use the Remove Duplicates function it only removes them from that column, all the others remain intact. Hope that makes sense, can anyone help?
