    Remove duplicates from rows

    Hi,
    I'd want to remove duplicates for every single row of my file. I need a macro that evaluates row by row and compares only the values in the active row.

    So far, I got this:

    but it does not work, how can I do it?
    I have attached a template.

    thanks

    Re: Remove duplicates from rows

    Hi,
    the criteria is to detect duplicate cells in a row. For instance, in row number 5 we have two times "item_type_keyword" and I'd want to remove that duplicate. Then the macro has to evaluate the next row independently.

    THanks

    Re: Remove duplicates from rows

    Hi,
    I tried with the macro recorder but the "remove duplicates" default option in Excel does not suit my needs.

    I have attached a file, maybe it could be better explained now

    Thank you :D

    Cool Re: Remove duplicates from rows


    Yes, the Excel Remove duplicates belongs to smart sheets only

    According to your initial attachment as a VBA beginner starter :

    PHP Code: 
    Sub Demo1()
            
    Dim R&, C%
            
    Application.ScreenUpdating False
        With ActiveSheet
    .UsedRange.Rows
            
    For 1 To .Count
            
    For = .Cells(R, .Columns.Count 1).End(xlToLeft).Column To 5 Step -1
                
    If Application.Match(.Cells(RC), .Item(R), 0) <> C Then .Cells(RC).Delete xlShiftToLeft
            Next C
    R
        End With
            Application
    .ScreenUpdating False
    End Sub

    Lightbulb For the fun


    Thanks for the rep' !

    According to your attachment a VBA variation just with a single loop :

    PHP Code: 
    Sub Demo2()
            
    Dim N&
            
    Application.ScreenUpdating False
        With 
    [A1].CurrentRegion.Columns(5).Resize(, [A1].CurrentRegion.Columns.Count 4).Cells
            
    For = .Count To 1 Step -1
                
    If Not IsEmpty(.Item(N)) Then If Application.Match(.Item(N), .Rows(.Item(N).Row), 0) < .Item(N).Column 4 _
                                         Then 
    .Item(N).Delete xlShiftToLeft
            Next
        End With
            Application
    .ScreenUpdating True
    End Sub
