    Re: Find duplicates rows & give user options

    Why would the user want to do this manually? Couldn't that lead to errors (e.g. what if the quantities are 8 and 5, and the user accidentally types 15 instead of 13)?

    Would it not be better to automate the entries by aggregating the quantities and using the latest IdStart and IdEnd values?

    Thanks AliGW, You are probably correct, but there are vagaries to philately and we feel it's better to let her have the final say. Her accuracy is on her own head.

    Jindon, to me your code is a mesmerising work of art and I'm keeping it to study when I have time (moving house interstate in a couple of weeks). However it still doesn't add the values or give the user the option. I need to finish this and I've cobbled together stuff which almost works, save for a problematic If statement. I'll post that separately and close this thread. Thank you very much for your help.

    Regards,
