I have a small doubt could you clarify that???
That is I find duplicate name but I want to delete one name only, if I
filter DUPLICATE….. both names are showing…
1. Select the range of data including the header. You need to have headers
for these columns
2. From menu Data>Filter>Advanced Filter>Copy to another location
3. In 'copy to' specify the target cell and check 'Unique records only'
4. Click OK will give you the unique list

...vlookup on cell below
Is it possible to do a VLOOKUP but instead of returning the value in row
that contains the lookup, it returns the value in the row below?
1 no x
2 yes y
3 ok z
=VLOOKUP("yes",A1:B3,2,FALSE) would return "z" instead of "y".
Th only way I can think of is to add a row header at the top and use the
MATCH function in column A to find the row position of "yes", then use
that in an HLOOKUP in column B. I was hoping there was a simpler way.
Not VLOOKUP, but INDEX & MATCH

Are you copying a bordered cell onto an un-bordered cell?
Format from source will go with the source.
If copying an unbordered cell onto a blank bordered cell, source format will
wipe the target cell format.
