I have several rows of data entry in a single column and want to simplify the number of rows to only unique entries (i.e. eliminate any cells whose entries are verbatim duplicates of a previous cell).

Any ideas on how to do this?

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

This should work as a macro - It just simulates and advanced filter with the "Unique" option ticked

Code:
Sub Find_Unique()

Columns("A:A").AdvancedFilter Action:=xlFilterCopy, CopyToRange:=Range("B1" _
        ), Unique:=True

End Sub

Please forgive my ignorance, but I'm not really familiar with macros. Do I just do = in the cell followed by the code you paste?
