Hi Everyone,

[Sheet1]:

LOAD Distinct *

FROM [lib://Documents/ODS.SIS.MKT.00019 - Open Quote Details (1).xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1) Where NOT Exists([Customer Part Number],[Bill To Customer Name]);

Thanks in advance!

Thanks and Regards,

Re: To remove duplicate rows from two column

Hi Drishti,

Your data isn't duplicated for the field you mentioned, each line has at least one different column for the fields you have on the spreadsheet.

Your script is trying to check the duplicates for the entire line and the not exists, as you've put it, won't have any effect on your data.

Let's say you get the following fields from your file:

The distinct will get, from the 6 rows above, only 3 (three) lines.

The rest of your data for this 6 rows is differnent for each row in the spreadsheet, so to get the distinct values, you'll have to specify some fields, as I did above.

Re: To remove duplicate rows from two column

Hi Felip,

Thanks for your reply.

I understand that every row has different values and if I'm putting distinct then its gonna fetch all the 6 rows. So here in this case, ideally I should not use distinct. But my actual goal is to load the data and put the filter on ([Customer Part Number],[Bill To Customer Name]) so that I can remove the duplicated data. How can I achieve this?

Thanks and Regards,
