    Detect Duplicate and Consolidate Lists

    Hi, so I was sent an address list with names by one of my friends. It's approximately around 1800 and I wanted to group them like:

    Name Adress
    John Smith 123 Alpha Ave
    John Smith ]321 Bravo Rd
    Jane Doe 156 Charlie Fwy
    Jane Doe 57 Delta St

    Because how it looks like right now is:

    Address Name
    John Smith 123 Alpha Ave
    Jane Doe 156 Charlie Fwy
    John Smith 321 Bravo Rd
    Jane Doe 57 Delta St

    In short, I wanted a list from wherein it would group the addresses under the same name so that it would be less time consuming when I started inputting the numbers. Because I've checked for duplicate names and there's a lot but has different addresses. If that made any sense, apologies English is not my first language. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

    I would go with a pivot table. set a pivot table based on your data, add Name and Address in Rows box. Click on pivot, go to Design - Subtotals - Do not show; Grand Totals - Off for Rows and Columns; Report Layout - Show in Tabular; Report Layout - Repeat all Item Labels
    Click the * to say thanks.

    I've attached an example. Follow the instructions above and try to replicate it. Also, select your range, in this case in columns A and B and press Ctrl+T to convert it to range. Tick the My data has headers box and press ok. Doing so, whenever you insert a new row of data and refresh the pivot, the pivot data source will get automatically updated with all data rows
