Find Duplicate names and delate
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

You could create ruler guides. Right-click a ruler guide, click format ruler
guides. You then can adjust your table rows by snapping to the guides.

There should have an option to insert column breaks for printing.
For example, when printing a sheet with only one column, but with 200 rows,
it could be automatically broken into 4 columns of 50 rows, all fitting in
just one page, instead of 4.
This would save paper and allow easy reading of this kind of sheets.
The same logic could be applied to rows...
