Hello, I am wondering if it is possible to decompose into numbers with the same values. For example, divide 40 into 5 cells of 8.

Hi

I would like to get assistance with the following:

One cell the numbers are [1,1,1,2,2,3,4,1]

I would like to let this number only result in another cell to illustrate [1,2,3,4]

This would also mean if there is a 0, for instance, [1,1,0,1,4,2]
Then I would like it to look like = [1,2,4]

Kind regards
SS

Function RemoveDupes2(txt As String, Optional delim As String = ",") As String
    Dim x
    Dim arr()
    'Updateby Extendoffice 20221128
    Application.Volatile
    On Error Resume Next
    With CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
        .CompareMode = vbTextCompare
        For Each x In Split(txt, delim)
            If Trim(x) <> "" And Not .Exists(Trim(x)) Then .Add Trim(x), Nothing
        Next
        If .Exists("0") Then .Remove ("0")
        If .Count > 0 Then
            xCount = .Count
            ReDim arr(1 To xCount)
            i = 1
            For Each Key In .Keys
                arr(i) = Key
                i = i + 1
            Next

            For i = 1 To xCount - 1
                For j = i + 1 To xCount
                If arr(i) > arr(j) Then
                        temp = arr(i)
                        arr(i) = arr(j)

Is there a way for the Split Numbers formula to work on a cell receiving changing data, so that the split numbers automatically update when the source cell changes?
