Create value list from range

I've got a range of cells containing state abbrev. that I want to list
in another range excluding all duplicated states abbrev's.

Is there a way to list the non-duplicated values?

Thanks for your help...

Try this:

Make sure you have a heading for your list. I'll assume your range is
A1:A100 and A1 is STATE.

In a blank cell off to the side on the same sheet, enter your column
I'll use Z1: STATE

Data>Filter>Advanced Filter:
Check: Copy to another location
Check: Unique records only
List Range: $A$1:$A$100
Copy to: $Z$1
Click the [OK] button

You should now have a list of unique state abbreviations under cell

Does that help?

First make sure there is a label cell on top of your column, select the data 
(including the label) and then pull-down:

Data > Filter > Advanced Filter... and check unique records

Thanks for your help on this, is there a way to have this done
automatically rather than having to manually do it each time?

OK...try this:

With your list of state abbreviations in A1:A20, with A1: State

D1: State

Note: Commit that array formula by holding down the [Ctrl][Shift] key
and press [Enter].

Copy D2 and paste it into D3 through D52.

Each time you enter a new state abbreviation that is not alread
listed, it will display in the list in D1:D52.

Change range references to suit your situation.

Does that help?

XML Mapping: Creating a "non-repeating schema element" in VS2005
Question regarding XML mapping in Excel. XML Mapping in Excel allows you to map "non-repeating schema elements" to an individual cell while "repeating schema elements" automatically get handled as an Excel "list".

Said differently, what makes a schema element "repeating" versus "non-repeating"? Is it a unique XPATH statement? If my underlying table has...
