Good afternoon:

I have 10,000 rows of data and I want to search for duplicate rows but I don't know how to. I do NOT want to delete duplicates, just highlight them.

Sample spreadsheet:




Date
Claim Number
Patient Name
Code
Patient ID Number
Date Bill Submitted
Amount Billed
Amount Paid
10/1/2014
156161

John Doe
99213
A615651
10/5/2014
$700.00
$500.00
10/8/2015
165511
Sam Jones
99214
B625663
10/15/2015
$800.00
$200.00
10/1/2014
156161
John Doe
99213
A615651
10/5/2014
$700.00
$500.00

We can easily see that the 1stand 3rd rows are duplicates. How do I find duplicates in 10,000 rows of data?

In order to be a duplicate, the following column names must match exactly: Date; Code; Patient ID Number


Thank you!!!

You Can use Conditional Formatting to find duplicate values.

Go to Home-->Conditional Formatting-->Highlight Cell Rules-->Duplicate Values

Not a whizz with VBA so there will no doubt be a better solution other than formula.
My quick workaround (since its based on 3 columns) assuming your table starts in cell A1; would be introduce a new column and use the formula in cell H2

=CONCATENATE(A2,D2,E2)

Then paste it down, and use what was suggested by ganeshpoojary05, you can also then filter by colours or even remove duplicates based on cell column H.

Again, there will be a much quicker way that the VBA gurus will know.
