Hi, Im trying to find a way to extract a list of names from a single column that has approx 1500 names in it some of which are repeated. I need to display this extract in a separate column and have each name only once.

The closest thing to display what im after is the filter option where it displays each name only once regardless of how many times its repeated, but I cannot capture the list that displays in the filter list.
