I've searched and searched, but can't find this:

I have a list of names in column A, and each has an X in either column B or column C. The problem is that some of the names on my list are duplicates. I want to get rid of the duplicate records but KEEP the info contained in columns B and C. The final product should be a list of unique names with an X in either column A, column B, or both.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

Use an advanced filter, with the "copy to another location" and "unique values" options. This gets you your unique list.

Then use a vlookup() on this list to refer to the cols B & C from your original list

Any chance you can walk me through this? I'm not familiar with the vlookup() function, and can't seem to make it work...
