Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.

Hi,

There are many ways.

One good way is using advanced filter, select - "Copy to other location", List range: select the range where yo data lies, "Copy to: Select N1 in your case, select unique records only..Click on "OK".

You can see the unique records in Column N.

Hope this helps.
