Distilling a list

Is there a way to boil down a list and get rid of duplicates w/o macros.

For example: Column A has 100 entries. There are only 30 unique entries with many duplicates. How could you show only the unique list in Column A (starting at row 101) or in Column B?

Is this feasible w/o macros or pivot tables?

Best,

Brandon

This is directly taken from the VBA Macros CD available on this website (I do not take the credit). It will put the new data on the 2nd sheet.
