Dear Sir,

Sorry for disturb again,

I need to extract data from my automatic location-wise data entry sheet, in this sheet thousand of rows with two times one is the Occurring and one is the Clearing time.

but from some days datasheet received with fake entries and hard to find fake entries because of a lot of entries.

Below mention one location entry example;
Occurring on 9/16/2021 12:00:00 AM
Cleared on 9/16/2021 8:37:26 AM
But the Next entry again comes from12am to 8 am.

first three rows are genuine others are fake

Excel Facts

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Thanks for giving your valuable time.

I need a formula in the last column when entry is repeated in previous time so cell show fake against row and if no any repetition gives me ok in the cell.

you can drag formula down and formula work on entire Range, No problem.
Go to last Cell has formula (here D11) and mouse over the right-down side of Cell to change mouse icon to black plus icon
Then Double click, formula dragged automatically until last row.

All entries are in a different time but the formula gives me fake status.

Please Clarify Exactly what is OK & what is False.
1. Only First example of location & Occurring & Clearing Time
2. Only first 3 case?
3. Or ....
At your first example you told with same location 3 case have OK result & I misunderstanding.

Sir
All locations have a different code which is mentioned in column A (Location) also all locations have 3 sectors it means if activity starts on a location software insert 3 Time entries at the same time so the first three entries are correct and As per our rules if a location activity starts and ends in 4Hrs. (example 16:00 to 20:00 Hrs), so next entry of that location is not possible to come again in these 4Hrs.

But due to some software error since the Last Month, software inserts entries multiple times during the that 4Hrs.

The technical team working on software but we need to find previous fake entries.
