    Finding duplicates

    Hello,
    I am trying to find the formula for excel that can find duplicates in a worksheet. The numbers are 4 digits but may be in a different sequence:

    1234
    4321
    5678
    6875

    I want to identify those numbers that have the same numbers, although they may be in a different order. Is this Possible?

    Re: Finding duplicates

    I just want them identified color so I can determine how many of each What I have is below:

    A1-J1 COLUMNS
    92 ROWS

    Each cell has a 4 number pin. i would like them identified by color if possible. (I have over 400 numbers and some have the same numbers just in different order)

    Yes any number that has a match/multiple matches. If they are colored the same I can sort them out. If the could be different colors that would be great.

    Attached is the file. 10's should be number 0 and -9 should be number 9.

    (2)That will be my next question on how to make 9+1 become 0 vice 10.
