    See duplicate values before delete

    I know how to use the Delete Duplicates option on the ribbon. But, I suspect that it is deleting rows it shouldn't. Is there a way to show duplicate rows? I tried conditional formatting. But since every item in every column will repeat at some point it just painted the worksheet pink.

    Re: See duplicate values before delete

    This formula will flag the first occurrence as the original (TRUE) and all subsequent occurrences as (FALSE) =MATCH(A1,A:A,0) = ROW ().
    One spreadsheet to rule them all. One spreadsheet to find them. One spreadsheet to bring them all and at corporate, bind them.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, but a sample spreadsheet is more likely to be worked on.
