Highlight Duplicate Values with Conditional Formatting

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

Learn how to use conditional formatting to show duplicate values in a field / column at a glance in both Microsoft Access and Excel.

Jerome from Argentina (a Silver Member) asks: In Excel, you can show values in a column that are duplicates using Conditional Formatting – Highlight Cells Rules – Duplicate Values. Is it possible to do the same thing in Access?


I'll show you how to create a query to show duplicate customers based on any number of fields you choose. So you can say "show me all of the customers that have the same first name, last name, and address." You will learn how to create a Cartesian Product.

I have put the DCOUNT as a calculated field in a query. Then I use a form with some combo and text boxes to filter the query. not sure what is meant by applying the filter inside the DCOUNT
