I have a Smartsheet that has a column for File # which are unique and shouldn't be any duplicates, is there a way to identify if a column has duplicate numbers and set a conditional format or some indicator?
I'd try this.....
Create a helper column that is a checkbox. Then add this formula:
=IF(COUNTIF([File #]:[File #], [File #]@row) > 1, 1)
or check out https://community.smartsheet.com/discussion/72866/formula-to-remove-duplicates-in-a-column. The answer uses a helper column and a date create (system) helper column.
Hope this helps.
Thanks vey much this worked great and then I ran a report to filter out what is not needed.
Appreciate this community, always so helpful.
