    Hello,

    I am trying to find a way to find the highest revision (column 3) for each unique item number in column 9 and delete all the 'fluff"

    Jakobshavn: Thank you sir. Unfortunately I had made my example too brief. I ended up sing the VBA.

    I like the approach!
    Performing the two-way sort allows easy identification of which records must be removed.

    Re: Find highest revision number in one column of a item number in another column

    Hello,

    I would like to tweak my post/request....
    I am also looking to add total to 'POLI_QTY' that captures the totals of all the previous PO_SUPP quantities, while maintaining the deletion of of the oldest PO_SUPP revisions.
    For example, after the code is run, for S4540539, only PO_SUPP 4 is showing, but a total qty ordered of 81.3

    Thanks in advance
