    Aloha,

    I am using a this conditional format to locate dupe names:

    =countif($1$99,b1)>1

    If there is any extra spaces etc. Excel will not recognize this as a match. Is there a way where I can tweak this formula to also find like names, or names with transposed letters or extra space between the first and last name?

    Aloha Brian. You could use:

    =countif($1$99,trim(b1))>1

    which will get rid of extra spaces but it's not going to address names that are similar or names with transposed characters.
