```One way ..

Assume the numbers are in col A, in A2 down

Put in B2: =IF(COUNTIF(\$A\$2:A2,A2)>1,"X","")
Copy B2 down

This'll flag all duplicates in col A with an "X"

Now do a Data > Filter > Autofilter on col B
(put a label in B1 first)

In the droplist in B1, select "X"

This filters out all the duplicate rows

Select the row headers for the duplicates
(this will be all the "blue" colored filtered row headers)
Right-click > Delete Row

Remove the Autofilter

I also need help with this but when I do as you answered I get the
message "Wrong in formula" and :A2,A2 is highlighted in the formula. I
use a swedish localized Excel 2003 where the formulas use swedish names
but english should work as well right?

```No, you would need to use

=OM(ANTAL.OM(\$A\$2:A2;A2)>1;"X";"")

it will translate English formulas if you get a workbook with them but you
can't enter English formulas

Prevent duplicate entries in Excel 2000
I'm trying to create data validation to prevent users from entering duplicate rows in Excel 2000.

When downloading credit card activity Money 2002 replaces a payee at random with another payee from a prior transaction. I have seen how to correct this in Money 2003.

Unbound Data Entry Form
Bit of a "noob" question but here goes.... I am using an unbound form for data entry purposes. I am using an unbound form as I have some VBA code which checks that mandatory fields are filled in first. This works fine where all the fields are text boxes (i.e. not combos or list boxes) but the problem I'm having is that the parent table "tblContracts" has 4 lookup tables (which are used for combos with various fields on the form) and these are numeric fields which link between the tables (i.e. In the parent table the field would be SupplierID whick li...

Batch approval for quick entry

Remove Duplication from Validation List?

I have an interesting issue. We have 4 domains (1 forest). When I run User Account ADMT from one domain to another (intradomain), sometimes, it will create a duplicate mailbox on the first storage group.

As for the fix, all I had to do was delete the mailbox that is attached to the user account, then reconnect the valid mailbox to the user account.
