Duplicates from a a previous date

✭✭✭✭✭

Hi All,

I'm currently trying to create a formula to count a row as a duplicate if the same information was entered the day before.

Example:

[Duplicate 2] formula is currently the following (but I know is wrong):

=IF(COUNTIFS(Orders:Orders, Orders@row, Date:Date, Date@row, Reasons:Reasons, Reasons@row) > 1, 1, 0)

I want the formula to compare the Orders and Reasons column and if they are the same from the PREVIOUS day, then I want to check the box in the [Duplicate 2] column. Hope that makes sense.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Luke

Subtract 1 from the Date@row to specify "the day before" and then change the argument to greater than zero:

=IF(COUNTIFS(Orders:Orders, Orders@row, Date:Date, Date@row - 1, Reasons:Reasons, Reasons@row) > 0, 1, 0)
