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

Both systems eliminates the empty cells or rather sinks them at the bottom of the unique list. Did you try them out? No, I guess you mean these are very long routes and you want a single formula that does all in one go in a column, right?

Unless I'm missing something - wouldn't be the 1st time - with codes in column A would this in column B do --

=IF(COUNTIF($A$1:$A1,A1)=1,A1,"")

Sort on column B
