    Hi MarvinP Thanks for your reply i tried with all that links but i could't able to find the exact answer for my problem. If i try to delete duplicates in excel2007 it deletes all Yes and No in my list and gives only one Yes and one no, but my question is different please understand my problem.

    Re: Removing duplicates between two text in a column

    OK Booba,

    So the question is how to change
    yes

    yes

    no
    no

    yes

    no
    yes
    yes
    no

    Into

    yes



    no


    yes

    no
    yes

    no

    Am I understanding the question now?

    Look at the attached with a helper column to arrive at your anser. Is that what you wanted?

    One of the smart guru's can most likely merge my helper column into a single column formula.
