    Any headers on columns A & B? Just the top row, if any?

    ok, it's ready for you to test it out...

    just want to tweak it for you if you have headers.?

    Thanks. Sorry... had to run a minute. Nothing pretty. I just need something to create the list.

    I understand. The headers question was more about how to initialize the formulas for you; and how I explain how to use it. Trust me, there is nothing pretty about this solution Assuming no headers:

    Column C; Row 1:
    =IFERROR(IF(MATCH(A1,OFFSET($B$1,0,0,5,1),0),"",A1 ),A1)

    Where "5" refers to the LAST ROW WITH DATA IN COLUMNS A/B

    Column D; Row 1:
    =IFERROR(IF(MATCH(B1,OFFSET($A$1,0,0,5,1),0),"",B1 ),B1)

    Where "5" refers to the LAST ROW WITH DATA IN COLUMNS A/B

    Fill these formulas down to the last row with data in columns a/b

    They should populate with names and blanks.

    COPY AS VALUES ONLY columns c and d into columns e and f. This will remove the formulas and leave only values/blanks. Then proceed as we discussed.

    Let me know if you need more information on copying as values only.

    EDIT: Instead of "5" above, use YOUR value. "5" is just an example.

    OK, I must have done something wrong because I end up with a concatenation of the two columns in the final column (I'll call "G").

    2 columns, A & B.

    C & D filled with new formulas using final row of column as the "5"

    Copy values of C & D to E & F

    Concatenate F to bottom of E to create G.

    Sort column G removing 0's.

    Result is all email addresses in one row.

    Do you have a small excel file example you can email or PM (or attach here)?

    Thanks

    Sure, I'll send it to you. But, if you COPY the data (not whole column) from F to bottom of E. Your column to work with is now E. I'm not sure how G entered the picture or exactly what you mean by concatenate as you are using it.?

    Stand by for example sheet.

    Tom, while I wait for your PM:

    excel.png

    E and F were copied by value from C and D.

    F (data, not column) copied to bottom of E. E is twice as long now.

    E is the final column to remove blanks and sort if you like. I darkened some cells for clarity.

    So if column A has 100 rows the equation for C1 is:

    =IFERROR(IF(MATCH(A1,OFFSET($B$2,0,0,100,1),0),"",A1 ),A1)


    And if column B has 50 rows, would D1 be:

    =IFERROR(IF(MATCH(B1,OFFSET($A$1,0,0,50,1),0),"",B1),B1)


    Or would it be:

    =IFERROR(IF(MATCH(B1,OFFSET($A$1,0,0,100,1),0),"",B1),B1)

    Nope. That red 100 is for column B (Note $B$2)

    Naw. That number is for column A

    Tom, I see $B$2 and $A$1. Does B have a header or something...and you changed it to 2? It was $B$1 when I wrote it. And if you did change it because of a header, then we have to change something else as well.

    just use the countif function. If you count more than 1 of a name, ignore it with a blank. Once you've done that, use the Filter feature to filter out the blanks. Copy the new Column(s) and paste VALUES into a new sheet. done!

    to combine two columns into 1:
    =INDEX(A:B,ROUNDUP(ROW()/2,0),2-MOD(ROW(),2))



    to ignore values that happen more than once:
    =IF(COUNTIF(A:B,"="& Cell )=1, Cell,"")

    The words Cell get replaced with the 1st equation.

    end result:
    =IF(COUNTIF(A:B,"="&INDEX(A:B,ROUNDUP(ROW()/2,0),2-MOD(ROW(),2)))=1,INDEX(A:B,ROUNDUP(ROW()/2,0),2-MOD(ROW(),2)),"")

    Put it in the 3rd column, 1st cell, and drag it down. must drag it down to TWICE the length of the longest column, A or B.
