duplicate values question

hello folks,

I'm trying to remove the duplicates in my report, but looks like i'm running out of ideas 😔 / This is what i have currently :

From To Name Author Number DAY

John Jeremy Chair Name01 Mary 902 X

Jeremy Martin Chair Name01 Mary 902 X

Alex Jeremy Chair Name02 Suzanne 867 y

Jeremy John Chair Name03 Criss 477 Z

Jeremy Martin Chair Name02 Suzanne 867 y

Name is the product name, Author represent who is building it and the number is assigned to the product.

From and To fields represent the folks which are running audits.

I would like to remove the duplicate rows (filtered by name or author or number) and to have something like:

From To Name Author Number DAY

whatever whatever Chair Name01 Mary 902 X

whatever whatever Chair Name02 Suzanne 867 Y

Jeremy John Chair Name03 Criss 477 Z

Adding a break does not to the trick as i already have 1 and adding another break on the DAY and adding another one makes the report hard to read.

Checkboxing the remove duplicate from the DATA Properties does not do the trick as each row is defined as a individual and unique row.

Running =If(Previous.... doesn't work either as we have a lot of folks running audits and not following a pattern..

I'm trying to see if i could modify the SQL data and create a custom one including the SELECT UNIQUE only when selecting the Author or Number from the database, but with no help, it fails ..

I'm running out of ideas folks, any help to simplify the report and not loose the unique content would be so helpful ..

Thank you very much,

Costi

    Technically you haven't got duplicates as all five rows are different.

    Are you saying that you want to combine multiple rows into "whatever" in the from and to fields?

      Thanks very much Mark, i tried it and now i have either "whatever" or #multivalue if i'm adding instead of "whatever" the column name.

      Is there a way to have instead of "whatever" , all the names in order ?

      Something like:

      John, Jeremy, Martin, Alex .. and so on displayed at the row level?

      Thanks much,

      Costi
