Find Unique Values in Excel

An Excel tutorial by Peter Kalmstrom

Excel iconIn the demo below Peter Kalmstrom has imported a lot of data from another system into Excel and wants to find all unique values in one of the columns.

This is the process:
  • Fit the column width to the content to get a better overview of data.

  • Remove any empty columns or rows.

  • Format the datasheet as a table.

  • Summarize the table with a Pivot Table in a new sheet.

  • Drag the column you want to find unique values in to ROWS.

  • Now you can see all the unique values.

Peter uses Excel 2013 for his demo, but finding unique values this way is possible in earlier versions too.
