# How do I find duplicate rows based on the value in the first column and make one row from them and add the values of the third column.

• ### Question

• How do I find duplicate rows based on the value in the first column and make one row from them and add the values of the third column.

example: I need all the same rows 1111 to be one row and the 3 column added together 1111 77 \$530 qqq. This is going to be used for a large sheet of data of multiple rows. I have the code to make one master sheet from multiple sheets. I just need this last piece to make it fully functional. See the macro code below.

row1     row2    row3  row4

1111    77       \$200     qqq.

2311    43       \$234     red

2424    44       \$123     des

1111    77       \$230     qqq

1111    77       \$100     qqq

code:

Sub LoopThroughDirectory()
Dim MyFile As String
Dim erow
Dim Filepath As String
Filepath = "Directory\"
MyFile = Dir(Filepath)
Do While Len(MyFile) > 0
If MyFile = "zfile.xlsm" Then
Exit Sub
End If

Workbooks.Open (Filepath & MyFile)
Range("A2:D20000").Copy
ActiveWorkbook.Close

erow = Sheet1.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Row
ActiveSheet.Paste Destination:=Worksheets("Sheet1").Range(Cells(erow, 1), Cells(erow, 4))

MyFile = Dir

Loop
End Sub

### Answers

• Hi,

We could use WorksheetFunction.SumIf Method (Excel) to sum the column 3 based on column 1.

E.g.

Set Rng = Range("A2:A7")

Set sumRng = Range("C2:C7")

For Each cell In Range("A2:A7")

rsl = Application.WorksheetFunction.SumIf(Rng, cell, sumRng)

cell.Offset(0, 5).Value = cell.Value

cell.Offset(0, 6).Value = cell.Offset(0, 1).Value

cell.Offset(0, 7).Value = rsl

cell.Offset(0, 8).Value = cell.Offset(0, 3).Value

Next cell

We could use Range.RemoveDuplicates Method (Excel) to remove duplicated rows.

E.g.

Range("F2:I7").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=Array(1, 3)

If you have any issue, please feel free to let us know.

Regards,

Celeste

### All replies

• Because You have posted VBA code then I assume that you are reasonably competent with VBA code so how about I just give you guidelines of how to do this. You can record code to get the syntax if you want it to be automated.

Refer to the following screen capture together with the guidelines below. (The screen capture already has the duplicates removed as per the guidelines below.)

• Copy the full range of data (columns A:D) to a new location (F:I)
• Select the new pasted columns (F:I) (probably are still selected following the paste)
• Select Data ribbon -> Remove duplicates.
• In the dialog box:  Check box against "My data has headers" (assuming you have column headers otherwise uncheck)
• Under columns, the first column to be checked and others unchecked.
• Click OK and you will have a unique list based on the first column of data.
• Referring to screen capture above, Insert the following formula in cell H2.

=SUMIF(\$A:\$A,F2,\$C:\$C)

• Copy the formula down the column. You can then use Copy -> PasteSpeial -> Values if you wish to remove the formulas after which you can then delete columns A:E if you wish.

As per my previous comment you can record code to get syntax for VBA code and if you then have problems with the VBA code then post what you recorded and I will assist further.

• To Celeste Li,

Don't you think that it would be common courtesy to give the OP a chance to respond before proposing the post as an answer. IMHO it is ridiculous marking the post as proposed answer only 31 minutes after posting. You should wait at least 24 hours before making it.

• I am aware of the process of manually removing duplicates. I was looking to automate it with VBA. The code I provided is code used to transfer data from multiple workbooks single sheet to a master workbook single sheet. The issue is I get duplicates. I need assistance creating the macro. I m not certain how to start.

Please, I would like to see your answer. I am looking to automat the process during the transfer of the data from multiple workbooks single sheet to a master workbook single sheet. Less duplicates and adding the price column.

• Excel 2016 Pro Plus with PowerPivot and Power Query (aka Get & Transform)
No formulas, no VBA macro.
Consolidate 3 sheets, remove duplicates, add select numbers.

I have told you how to start as per my guidelines where I said to record the macro to get the syntax and if you still have a problems then post the recorded macro and I will help further.
