    List unique values from 2 columns and find out Longest and Shortest Duration

    Hi,
    I know how to use Advance filter but would like to extract using a formula which will automatically extract unique values between Column A (Client Name) and Column D (Policy Name)

    I also need to find out the Longest and shortest duration based on column A and Column D from Column G (Duration). If there is only one Client Name then both will have same time. Please refer to attachment for raw data and result the management would like to have.

    This is just a sample data but there are 300,000 over records to compare from 3 different files (divided by month). Is there a way to check the other files as well?

    Really need your expertise to solve this issue. Thank you.

    Re: List unique values from 2 columns and find out Longest and Shortest Duration

    It did not came across my mind that pivot table can be done.

    As for the formulas to extract unique list the duration for "0:28:22" is populated as "12:28:22". Is there any way to be shown as "0:28:22"?

    I have 3 files by month where each files has 100,000 rows with same column structure. If I were to link accross all 3 files using the formulas then I need to open all 3 files for the formulas to work. Or is there any other way to link without opening the files?

    Regards
