Excel read duplicate rows and compare columns data to those rows

How In excel read duplicate rows and compare if the columns data of those rows are equal or not

welcome back to the forum

are you looking for approach to detect duplicated row by

  • checking all columns
  • checking 1 or particular columnset

Checking Column A for duplicates which will have multiple sets of them. Then for each set compare the data of specific columns of those duplicates

find some starter help here:

as it using the groupby approach also get some introduction on this here:

Hey Brett,

I am not sure I understand exactly what the goal is. Can you provide example data for what the end goal is?

I thought you might be able to use the Dt.DefaultView.ToTable(True, “ColumnName1”, “ColumnName2…”) This will output a dt of only unique values with the specified columns. I am uploading a demo of this in use. Hope this helps…
