@Buvaneshwaran_R Have you tried Remove Duplicate rows Activity ? In the Screenshot I don’t think there are Proper Duplicates present. Is the duplicates based on a Column Value ?

Hi @Buvaneshwaran_R,

Check this one.

Here is the video demonstration .

Thank you

@supermanPunch in that excel a column INVOICE124 it’s duplicate only if it is duplicate i want to first one keep it as same value in excel. Second duplicate i need to change the value for example

   A                        B

INVOICE124 bbb

I need this output. Second duplicate i want to replace the value name as 0

Hi @Buvaneshwaran_R

You could do it by using by using the following code:
DataTable distinctTable = dtRows.DefaultView.ToTable(true, "column1");

For example
Hope this helps!

DataTable FilterDt= MainDataTable.DefaultView.ToTable(true,“Company Name”,“Date”)

or use Remove Duplicate Rows Activity

MainDT.AsEnumerable().GroupBy(Function(a) a.Field(Of String)(“Company Name”)).Select(Function(b) b.First).CopyToDataTable() - This is for finding only unique company


@Buvaneshwaran_R Check this Workflow :

I have made it work by keeping only two of the Duplicates if any using a Linq Query and then Update the Value for the Second Duplicate using a For Each Row. I think this is the Output that you were expecting. If it doesn’t match your required Output, please explain a bit more in detail.

Check the Input File. Execute the workflow. It should generate an Output Sheet in the same Excel. Revert back if it doesn’t work. (8.4 KB)

@supermanPunch I checked your zip file. Mean while 3 duplicate rows is there 3rd it’s automatically deleted. can you check once i have 2 more duplicates it’s there. Can you help me to solve this issue

@Buvaneshwaran_R Don’t you need to keep only two Duplicates (including the original one) and Update the Second Duplicate ?

@Buvaneshwaran_R Considering the data in the ‘Invoice#’ column will always be in that format. The workflow below should be able to give you the right output.
