Move entire rows to another sheet based on duplicate cells in a column

If there are duplicate values in a column, then move the entire rows to another sheet, the following VBA code can do you a favor:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module window.

VBA code: Move entire rows to another sheet based on duplicate cells in a column:

Sub CutDuplicates()
'Updateby Extendoffice
    Dim xRgS As Range
    Dim xRgD As Range
    Dim I As Long, J As Long
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xRgS = Application.InputBox("Please select the column:", "KuTools For Excel", Selection.Address, , , , , 8)
    If xRgS Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    Set xRgD = Application.InputBox("Please select a desitination cell:", "KuTools For Excel", , , , , , 8)
    If xRgD Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    xRows = xRgS.Rows.Count
    J = 0
    For I = xRows To 1 Step -1
        If Application.WorksheetFunction.CountIf(xRgS, xRgS(I)) > 1 Then
            xRgS(I).EntireRow.Copy xRgD.Offset(J, 0)
            xRgS(I).EntireRow.Delete
            J = J + 1
        End If
    Next
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run this code, and in the popped out dialog box, select the column which contains the duplicate cells you want to move based on, see screenshot:

4. Then click OK, in another prompt box, please select a cell in another sheet where you want to put the moved rows, see screenshot:

5. And then click OK, the rows which have duplicate values in column A have been moved into a new sheet, see screenshot:

If you want to move the duplicate rows from a range of cells, the following VBA code can help you:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module window.

VBA code: Move entire rows to another sheet based on duplicate rows:

Sub CutDuplicates()
'Updateby Extendoffice
    Dim xRgD As Range, xRgS As Range
    Dim I As Long, J As Long, K As Long, KK As Long
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xRgS = Application.InputBox("Please select the data range:", "KuTools For Excel", Selection.Address, , , , , 8)
    If xRgS Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    Set xRgD = Application.InputBox("Please select a desitination cell:", "KuTools For Excel", , , , , , 8)
    If xRgD Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    KK = 0
    For I = xRgS.Rows.Count To 1 Step -1
        For J = 1 To I - 1
            For K = 1 To xRgS.Columns.Count
                Debug.Print xRgS.Rows(I).Cells(, K).Value
                Debug.Print xRgS.Rows(J).Cells(, K).Value
                If xRgS.Rows(I).Cells(, K).Value <> xRgS.Rows(J).Cells(, K).Value Then Exit For
            Next
            If K = xRgS.Columns.Count + 1 Then
                xRgS.Rows(I).EntireRow.Copy xRgD.Offset(KK, 0).EntireRow
                xRgS.Rows(I).EntireRow.Delete
                KK = KK + 1
            End If
        Next
    Next
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run this code, in the popped out dialog box, select the select the data range that you want to move the duplicate rows, see screenshot:

4. Click OK button, and then in another prompt box, select a cell in a new sheet where you want to put the moved supplicate rows, see screenshot:

5. Then click OK button, and now, the duplicate rows have been moved into another sheet you specified at once, see screenshot:

Hola buenas,

Tenia una pregunta con respecto a esta macro; Esta macro es exactamente lo que necesito y funciona perfectamente, pero mi problema es que solo funciona en grupo de datos que no sean muy grandes.

Cuando la aplico sobre un grupo de datos grandes (en mi caso, 50mil filas), excel inevitablemente colapsa; He probado muchas cosas pero sigue colapsando.

Hay alguna manera de hacer que la macro funcione en estos casos? alguna idea? Gracias de antemano.

Rafael.

Hello, Rafael

Yes, as you said, if the data is large, the vba code will not work perfectly. In this case, you can use the auxiliary column to mark the duplicate row first, then use the filter function to filter out the duplicate row, finally copy the duplicate row to another worksheet. Please see the below demo:
To find the duplicate rows, please apply this formula: =IF(COUNTIFS($A$2:$A2,$A2,$B$2:$B2,$B2,$C$2:$C2,$C2) >1, "Duplicate row", "")
If you just want to find the duplicate cells in one column, please apply this formula: =IF(COUNTIFS($A$2:$A2,$A2) >1, "Duplicate row", "")

Please have a try, hope it can help you!

Hola, que tal,

Tengo una duda con respecto a esta macro; La macro funciona perfectamente y es justo lo que necesito, el problema es que habitualmente necesito utilizarla con tablas de excel en las que hay como mas de 50 mil entradas.

Al utilizarla, Excel inevitablemente se colapsa y no responde.

Hay alguna manera de conseguir que esta macro funcione en estos casos? O quizas, conseguir alguna formula/combinacion de formulas en excel que haga lo mismo? Lo comento porque en el caso de las formulas, normalmente excel no suele tardar tanto en procesar y lo resuelve mas rapido.

Un saludo, y gracias.

Rafael.

For some reason. This worked once, but I cant run it again. IT keeps timing out. Any tips?

This is exactly what I was looking for, thank you! I did it wrong the first few times and then it kept freezing. But once I did it exactly like the screenshots (selecting the exact range, copy/pasting the headers in the other sheet, and only selecting the first field under the first header) the macros was instantaneous.
