I can't tell you how happy I am with Ablebits

I can't tell you how happy I am with Ablebits and the time it has saved me over the years. I started using Ablebits with my previous employer, probably 15 years ago and I constantly recommend your products to coworkers. You truly have top-notch customer service. Keep up the great work!

Jeff Meyer

Love the products!

Love the products! They have saved me thousands of hours and they are responsible for me getting a promotion at my last job, which helped me land my current position as a manager.

David Johnston

It's the best $100 we've ever spent!

I talked my supervisor into getting Ultimate Suite. I often deal with huge tables and matching between versions has always been a nightmare. He asked me about the new tools and I said: "It's the best $100 we've ever spent!" Indeed has saved me hours of work time. So, one big "Thanks!"

Mike Cavanagh

Incredible product, even better tech support…AbleBits totally delivers!

I use AbleBits every day and keep finding new uses. Changing jobs, I get my new employer to cough up the very reasonable cost of this software. There're things I just can't complete any other way in large datasets. My coworkers think I'm a wizard. But I'm just a religious user of AbleBits.

Deborah Bryant

Anyone who works with Excel is sure to find their work made easier by Ablebits

I've been using Ultimate Suite for almost a year and found it invaluable for my projects. I like the ability to merge tables based on 1 or more attributes, transpose columns and rows, and to transform data with Cell Cleaner utility. Plus, Ablebits' support is reliably fast and courteous.

Jackie Lee

Excel is at its best now

Ever since I found your add-ons, it has been a life saver or should I say a major time saver. I have bought two packages for both work computers. Excel is at its best now because of you. Thank you!

KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that our IT department doesn't understand

Our IT thought they know how the sales department should function and destroyed some data files. With AbleBits I was able to regenerate my database in a few clicks. This was AWESOME. KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that even our IT department doesn't understand.

Erik Peterson

AbleBits suite has really helped me when I was in a crunch!

Having AbleBits suite really helped me when I was in a crunch! It was intuitive and saved time on my job! Now I'm finding other capabilities I wasn't aware of, (first needed the easy merge capability). The other features are valuable time savers as well. Thanks for the product!

Nelda Fink

One word… WOW!

One word… WOW! I recently bought the package of add-ins for Excel. I've used it ONCE and it has paid for itself. It literally saved me HOURS of work. KUDOS!

Dave Brown

I don't know how to thank you enough for your Excel add-ins

I don't know how to thank you enough. I stumbled upon your site figuring out how to merge 2 tables. When I saw a free trial, I thought how well is this going to work? I downloaded it and am AMAZED. I don't know how I lived without it. THANK YOU for making my life easier.

Jennifer Morningstar

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it!

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it! There're only 2 ways to "exploit" Excel's potential: be a geek or embrace Ultimate Suite. Why waste time on routines that can happen with a click of a mouse? Make use of Excel's capabilities without wasting time and energy.

Kumar Nepa

I love your product

I love your product. It really saves me a lot of time and makes my job much easier.

Brad Gibson

The best spent money on software I've ever spent!

I just have to tell you that I love your AbleBits Collection. I can't tell you how much time it has saved me, particularly Merge Tables Wizard, Duplicate Removers, Merge Cells Wizard, and Split Names. This was the best spent money on software I've ever spent!

Patrick Raugh


Awesome!!! I love the tools and have been using the compare one everyday since I downloaded it.

Sheila Blanchard


I'm happy there is a company (Ablebits) where support really can solve customer's problem! Great job!


It is like having an expert at my shoulder helping me…

I feel that Ablebits has people like me in mind with software development. It's like having an expert at my shoulder helping me work more efficiently. Now I have more time to goof off at work. Uh, that last statement isn't true - I just have a lot less stress as things go so much smoother.

Linda Shakespeare

Your software really helps make my job easier

Your software really helps make my job easier. I don't know what I would do without Duplicate Remover, I use it several times a day for every project I work on. Thanks for making my life easier.

Frequently asked questions

What is Duplicate Remover Toolkit for Excel?

The Duplicate Remover Toolkit includes 3 tools that will help you out when you need to deduplicate your tables or find unique values in Excel.

Compare Tables comes in handy when you are to find differences and matches between two Excel columns, lists, or tables. 5 quick steps, ability to select one or multiple key columns for comparison, and a handful of different options to deal with the found entries.

Duplicate Remover Wizard is a multi-purpose tool that can find both duplicates and uniques in one Excel worksheet. It can search for the following data types:

  • Duplicates except their first occurrences
  • Duplicates + 1st occurrences
  • Unique values only
  • Uniques + 1st occurrences of duplicates

Quick Dedupe is the option you use when you have just 1 list to search for duplicates. All is done on one screen and literally in a few seconds: you simply select the needed columns, choose what you want to do with the found entries and click OK. That's it. Highlighting or deleting duplicates in Excel has never been easier!

What can Duplicate Remover Toolkit do that Excel's Remove Duplicates cannot?

The built-in Remove Duplicates tool can neither compare two lists nor search for unique values. Plus, it only deletes repeated records.

Our tools can search in one or two sheets and lets you deal with the found entries as you please. Here's a short summary of what Duplicate Remover Toolkit for Excel is capable of:

  • Find uniques and remove duplicates in 1 Excel table.
  • Search for duplicate and unique entries in 2 tables by comparing key columns.
  • Search in two lists with different number of columns.
  • Choose columns to be checked for duplicates. See how to find and remove dupes by key columns.
  • Find and remove duplicate rows that have the same values in one, several or all columns.
  • Identify duplicates and uniques in the way most suitable for you: select, highlight with color, mark with a status column, copy, or move.

How to remove duplicates in two Excel columns or lists?

If you need to find and remove duplicates in two columns, lists, or tables, Compare Tables is the tool you need. It can find all matches and differences between two datasets located in the same sheet or in two different sheets.

Learn more about the Compare Tables tool here.

How to remove duplicates in two Excel columns or lists?

The promptest way is to use Quick Dedupe. Select your range or just a single cell in your table, click the Quick Dedupe icon on the Ablebits Data tab, and choose the desired action: delete duplicates, highlight, select, identify in the status column, or move.

For more detailed information click here.

Will the toolkit help if I need to get all duplicates selected?

Sure. It is up to you whether the dupes will be selected, colored, removed, copied, identified in a status column, or moved to another location.

What if I want to find absolutely all duplicates including first occurrences?

The Duplicate Remover Wizard will definitely help. On the second step, you choose Duplicate + 1st occurrences. If your task is to find duplicates without 1st instances, choose Duplicates.

Learn more about Duplicate Remover here.

Can I compare two Excel lists and find unique values in the main list?

Sure. To find unique values in your main table use the Compare Tables tool. On the third step select to search for unique values, then indicate the columns to use for comparison, and specify the desired action for the found entries: highlight or select values, identify them in the status column, copy the uniques to another worksheet or Excel book.
