    first thanks all you for anwser me
    sample of the problem
    you have a list with a lot of numbers and you are gonna import it to a plan, later you recive another list with numbers and you are gonna put together with the other numbers at the same plan, but you do not want repetition.
    Is that clear ( sorry but my english isn't so good)
