Google Sheets: Tips for spotting duplicate entries

The formulas are explained as follows. The clause inspects the column and searches for cells with the same value as the cell (which is replaced by the corresponding cell during formula copying). This examines column and returns corresponding values from column for values that match.

Solution 1:

In case of identical duplicate entries, attempt the following code:

=UNIQUE([data range])


Solution 2:

To utilize the query function, you can employ both the select and group by commands to group identical items and determine their count.


=QUERY(A:B,"select A, B, count(A) where A!='' group by A, B",1)

This command will generate a tally of distinct rows and their corresponding frequency.
