Thanks...the issue with this is they all DELETE records. I should have highlighted that I just want to mark them/select them as I need to then manually check and incorporate all the updated attributes into a single record and then delete the others. – GeorgeC Nov 27 '11 at 23:13
There's a discussion on only finding (not deleting) them here… Apparently this should do what you need - I haven't tried it though and description is amusingly badly written… – Mr_Chimp Dec 7 '11 at 11:27
