    Posting Unique Values (Other Than Using Advanced Filter)

    I am trying to find an easier way to copy hundreds/thousands of columns containing many duplicate names

    Example:

    Boston
    Boston
    Boston
    Boston
    New York
    New York
    New York
    Chicago
    LA
    LA
    LA
    LA
    LA
    Chicago
    Chicago
    Boston
    Boston


    The only way I can do this is by using the Advanced Filter option, but I am pretty sure there used to be a way to use Paste Special and select unique values only. Is there a better way to do this?

    Excel 2007 data => remove duplicates
    Notice my main language is not English.

    There are quite a few ways to go with this, but depends on what you really want and what constitutes better..

    Advanced filter would be my first choice, but you can also use a formula.

    With a formula you would have to drag down which depending on the size of your list could get resource intensive.

    I don't have Excel 2010 for Mac, but Excel 2007+ had an option under the Data tab called Remove Duplicates

    Finally, you could use a pivot table.
