    Saving duplicate entries occurring X number of times

    Hi all,

    I am trying to save duplicate entries that occur a specified number of times. Here is the sample table:

    1
    1
    1
    1
    2
    2
    2
    4
    4
    4
    4
    3

    I am trying to save only entries occurring 4 times and get the following result:

    1
    4

    Thank you for your help,

    Method 1
    In the next column, (assuming data in A1:A60)
    =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$60,A1)
    Then filter on values less than 4 and delete those rows
    Then Data Tab> Remove duplicates

    Method 2
    Select data (A1:A60), Conditionally Format> new rule> Use formula
    =COUNTIF($A$1:$A$60,A1)<4
    format as blue background (for example) and custom sort or filter by cell color
    Then Data Tab> Remove duplicates
    Either of these work for you?
