How do i extract duplicate data rows. For instance, rows 5 and 16 have the same date/amount/name. My ultimate purpose is to delete any duplicate rows from my spreadsheet (excluding the original data). Any help is appreciated.

there are several ways but I find this one easy

Create a formula that concatenates the data you need to compare
say for example that column a, b, c are what you are looking at create formula

So say column E is empty put this formula and copy it down
=A1&B1&C1
Then do a formula in column F
=COUNTIF($E$2:E2,E2)
copy that formula down
now whereever you have a count greater than 1 is duplicates.
