    How to remove duplicate rows only if columns A and B are BOTH duplicates in Excel 2003

    Greetings,

    I have a sheet with data in columns A and B. Its approx 2000 rows long. I need to remove the duplicate rows, but only if BOTH columns are duplicated. I need to leave the unique dates for each unit. I need to do it in VBA, and it needs to run in Excel 2003. In 2007 its easy to simply use the removeduplicates code, but it errors out in 2003.

    I need a module of code that will find all the duplicate rows in the worksheet, and simply delete the entire row.
    The Data looks like this:

    BLG109T 04-Jun-2012
    BLG109T 05-Jun-2012
    BLG109T 06-Jun-2012
    BLG109T 07-Jun-2012
    BLG109T 10-Jun-2012
    BLG109T 10-Jun-2012
    BLG111T 04-Jun-2012
    BLG111T 05-Jun-2012
    BLG111T 06-Jun-2012
    BLG111T 06-Jun-2012
    BLG111T 07-Jun-2012
    BLG111T 10-Jun-2012
    BLG127T 10-Jun-2012
    BLG127T 04-Jun-2012
    BLG127T 05-Jun-2012
    BLG127T 06-Jun-2012
    BLG127T 06-Jun-2012
    BLG127T 07-Jun-2012
    BLG128T 07-Jun-2012
    BLG128T 10-Jun-2012
    BLG128T 04-Jun-2012
    BLG128T 05-Jun-2012
    BLG128T 05-Jun-2012

    etc.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Hey,

    Thanks for the help, but I've tried that already. That code doesn't work in Excel 2003. I need something that works in 2003 as I'm locked into 2003 at work.
