You can use the Only Unique Crew macro. The non-duplicates will come out of the U, and duplicates out of the D.

Hi @Ultralightbeam,

 

I have prepared a workflow for you:

 

Emil_Kos_0-1613573028491.png

 

 

I am checking how many times the name is occurring in the data and we removed everything that occurred only once.

If this workflow is helpful please mark my post as a solution.

Summarzie tool (Group by Name, Count Name). Join the results to your original database with Count as a new column. Filter by Count > 1. That should give you what you need.

Hi @Emil_Kos, I forgot the main issue why I posted this. 

Input:

NameProviderDateGrade
AlyssaNico2021-01-224
AlyssaShaira2021-01-225
AlyssaShaira2021-02-055
AlyssaNico2021-01-084
DyNico2021-01-224
EdroseNico2021-02-055
FatimaShaira2021-01-225
FatimaNico2021-02-055

 

Desired Output:

NameProviderDateGrade
AlyssaShaira2021-01-225
AlyssaShaira2021-02-055
AlyssaNico2021-01-084
FatimaShaira2021-01-225
FatimaNico2021-02-055


so if the name has two provider, it should get the max grade.

Hi @Ultralightbeam,


Sure give me a second.

Hi @Ultralightbeam,


I am not sure why you remove this line from the data:

 

Alyssa Nico 2021-01-08

4

 

As this combination isn't unique.

 

 


Please let me know if this workflow works for you

hi @Emil_Kos 

AlyssaNico2021-01-08

4

is still included on the desired output


I think based on your output its still the same

AlyssaNico2021-01-224
AlyssaShaira2021-01-225

 both of this has been output but since both weeks are the same - we should get the max grade. Do you think it's possible? I've been doing this for two hours already

Hi @Ultralightbeam,


Maybe I am missing something but I don't see any changes between your input and the desired output.


Can you highlight to me where do you see any changes between the two data sets?

I have elaborated the criteria on the comment column, thank you very much 

Input:

NameProviderDateGradeComment
AlyssaNico2021-01-224This should be removed since it is the same date with the next row and grade is smaller.
AlyssaShaira2021-01-225Retain since higher than duplicate date
AlyssaShaira2021-02-055Retain since date is unique for alyssa
AlyssaNico2021-01-084Retain since date is unique 
DyNico2021-01-224This will be removed since it is only one - I am only including rows that has two or more grades.
EdroseNico2021-02-055Same from row above
FatimaShaira2021-01-225Retain
FatimaNico2021-02-055Retain

 

Desired Output:

NameProviderDateGrade
AlyssaShaira2021-01-225
AlyssaShaira2021-02-055
AlyssaNico2021-01-084
FatimaShaira2021-01-225
