    merging people who live in same address into the one field and delete duplicates

    Hi all, this is my problem

    I have random data and lots of it. We are wanting to create a new sheet where the duplicates are removed and extra colums are added for the recipients who live at the same address. This way the mail will only go to one household. Example

    Last First Title Address
    Sample Dimitra Miss 12 Barkly St FITZROY NORTH VIC 3068
    Doe John Mr 32 Dryh St NORTH MELBOURNE VIC 3051
    Shedbe Helen Mrs 43 Bazza St Carlton VIC 3053
    Skarbek Sophie Miss 10 pomrst St RICHND SA 3111
    Doe Sandy Mr 32 Dryh St NORTH MELBOURNE VIC 3051
    Sample Sam Mr 12 Barkly St FITZROY NORTH VIC 3068


    I would like to end up with

    Last First Title Address First1 Title1 First 2 Title 2
    Sample Dimitra Miss 12 Barkly St FITZROY NORTH VIC 3068 Sam Mr
    Doe John Mr 32 Dryh St NORTH MELBOURNE VIC 3051 Sandy Doe
    Shedbe Helen Mrs 43 Bazza St Carlton VIC 3053
    Skarbek Sophie Miss 10 pomrst St RICHND SA 3111

    please help

    Hi IM Shadi,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please upload a sample workbook.. I guess if you have data properly arranged, you can create a pivot table with the help of some concatenation and this can solve your issue to some extent but not sure unless I see your workbook.. thanks.

    probably better to upload a book as an example to be honest. then people can work more efficently on if.

    the problem looks like it will be ok to solve but hard without a book to know for sure
