I need a way to delete duplicate rows in Sheet 1, which has the same number of columns (9) as Sheet 2. Sheet 2 has a header (data starts in row 2) and typically contains about 100 rows. Sheet 1 has a header (data starts in row 3). Is it possible to delete the duplicates in Sheet 1 without deleting the headers?
Fenced code blocks remain unchanged.
Yes, it is possible to delete the duplicates in Sheet 1 without deleting the headers. You can use the following steps to achieve that:
- In Sheet 1, select the range of cells that contains the data (excluding the header row).
- Go to the “Data” tab in the Excel ribbon.
- Click on the “Remove Duplicates” button.
- In the “Remove Duplicates” dialog box, make sure the checkbox for “My data has headers” is checked.
- Click the “OK” button.
This will remove any duplicate rows in Sheet 1 while preserving the header row.
