Is There A Function On Microsoft Excel Which Allows Me To Highlight Duplicate Records?

What I need to do, is to paste 2 different corporate structures into one spreadhseet and then delete the duplicates. Is there a function on microsoft excel which ahighlights any duplicate records in column A of excel?

Thanks


Answer

Yes
If you are using Excel2007, the Conditional Formatting in the Home tab has duplicates, go to
Home > Conditional Formatting > Highlight cell rules > Duplicate values

If you are in Excel2003, then you may need to use a function plus the conditional formatting like this
Use the COUNTIF function in an empty column to show 1 if duplicated, 0 if not like this
=IF( COUNTIF( A:A, A1)>0,1,0)
Then apply conditional formatting to that column to color if the cell value equals 1

Enjoy it
