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

I'm trying to write a query that will return a median for various
values taken from a previous query. I've seen some suggestions in my
searching, but I haven't been able to get them working. They are also
all from before 2003 and refer to Access 97 and 2000.
Has any functionality been added to 2003 for this? Or is there a non-
code-based way to do it? I've seen it suggested to write a code to
open the query, sort it, find the total number of records, divide it
in half, then seek out the middle record using that value. I'm still

=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

I have a pivot table report that uses about 1200 rows of data on a
