I have a list of all our customers from a third party we use most of which are duplicated because they were created on our old and new systems. The customer's email address is the identifier I can use to highlight they are duplicates, as they have different customer numbers, but what I then need to do is extract a list of every duplicate record with the lower customer number as that will be the old record that I want the third party to remove from their database. Any ideas on how I can extract that list.

Sort ascending by email/number, then Remove Duplicates (select all data columns and check mark email column only).

Of course. Don't know why I was trying to overcomplicate matters in my head. Cheers.
