deleting duplicate rows from dataset

Hi,

I'm exploring enterprise guide...I would like to know how to eliminate duplicate records from external file (XL or CVS).

And also how would i delete entire row if one colum is empty using EG 4.1.

Thanks,

Re: deleting duplicate rows from dataset

You can easily do this with the Query Builder. Specify the columns you want, tick the box to get "distinct" records only, and set a filter to eliminate values that are MISSING (or NULL, as I think was used in the 4.1 query builder terminology).

The output table would have the result you want.
