[Excel] Duplicate cell merges

I need some help with a cell merge.

Cell A Cell B
Old information Old Name 1
Old information Old Name 1
Old information Old name 2

What I would like to do is combine like this

Cell A Cell B
Old Info, Old info Old name 1 (Erase the Duplicate)
Old info Old name 2

There are cells where Old name is 3 or 4 of them.

But I am not sure how to go about it. ANy help would be appreciated.

Download and try asap utilities, »www.asap-utilities.com/. This is a fantastic tool.

Range » Clear duplicated values in selection (leave one original)
This utility will remove all duplicated values within the selected cells and keep one original.
The first cell containing a duplicated value will keep its value, all other cells with this same value will have their contents cleared.
This way only one of each value will remain.

You can specify if you want this utility to be case sensitive.

If your selection contains formulas then this utility compares the calculated values. This means that this utility considers a cell with the value 12 and a cell with the formula =3*4 as a duplicate.

Another great utility is The Duplicate Master. You can find it here »www.experts-exchange.com/Softwar ··· -V2.html
