Hi. I have a column of thousands of numbers, with many of the numbers being the same.

I need a list of just the unique numbers without having to go through and manually remove the duplicates

Can I tell it to delte all of the cells contain certain numbers as part of the cell?

User

So, say, a cell has the number 464613174123 in the cell

Excelchat Expert

ok

User
29/08/2018 - 07:57

I want to tell it to delete any cells that contain "123"

Excelchat Expert
29/08/2018 - 07:57

No it wont work that way

User
29/08/2018 - 07:57

So that cell would be deleted because it has 123 in the number

Excelchat Expert

We have to look at the data and create the logic and then we can look for solution.

Excelchat Expert
