Good afternoon

I have a table of data, over 25000 rows long. I need to extract a unique list of vehicle registrations per contract. the column which contains the vehicle registrations doesn't just have registrations in, sometimes it says workshop, consumables etc.

How do I extract the unique list, but only return the registrations, example snapshot below. I have put dummy registrations in, but they all follow the vehicle registration format (AB12 ABC).

For reference, Contracts are in column D and registrations and other stuff is in column G.

As always your help is very much appreciated

Can you post some sample data.

MrExcel has a tool called “XL2BB” that lets you post samples of your data that will allow us to copy/paste it to our Excel spreadsheets, so we can work with the same copy of data that you are. Instructions on using this tool can be found here: XL2BB Add-in

Note that there is also a "Test Here” forum on this board. This is a place where you can test using this tool (or any other posting techniques that you want to test) before trying to use those tools in your actual posts.

Unfortunately not, I tried adding XL2BB using the guide you linked to, but it's not available. Our company has blocked many things like this. Screenshot of my add-ins list pictured below

Thanks for that, not quite what I need, but that's because of my explanation! But I feel we're close!

Could we get the unique list to be a vertical list, one registration per cell? It's because I will then reference this list with countifs and sumifs to extract data from the whole table.
