I am working in a list of 2500+ entries with some duplicate entries. I wish to create a list consisting of only the unique entries- to eliminate all duplicates. Is there a way to do this without going in manually and finding the duplicates and the originals??
I really appreciate any and all help you can give. My email address is dave_wolkowitz@yahoo.com if you can help me.

Thank You!

Andrea,

Thanks for your help!
I tried to do that with aldvanced filtering and it cut down my list but I still see some duplicate email addresses. Some of the duplicates are different cases, and some are absolutely identical.

Any ideas?

Hello

andreas@lalala.com seems the same with
andreas@lalala.com , but for excel it is not,because the space after.
You have to check for excessive spaces
, or copy the seemed identical to the other
and try filtering again.
