I have a monthly list (about 20,000 items give or take) I upload at work that save for about 1,000 items the list is identical. Is there a way I can filter out anything the same completely and be left with only new items on that list?

How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

I have tried this but it only removes 1 of the 2 items. I want to remove all data that is repeated and be left with new items only.
