(Solved) – Extract Unique Values From Multiple Columns With Macro

  • by
(solved)-–-extract-unique-values-from-multiple-columns-with-macro

I have a list of codes in A and the image links in B and C.

What i want to do is remove the duplicates and arrange the unique links in a single column and give them a series name with incrementing no code_1 before image link 1 and code_2 before link 2 as shown in the picture.

enter image description here
I am trying this code to delete the duplicates but clueless about how to put the name before the link.

Sub tgr()

    Dim wb As Workbook
    Dim wsDest As Worksheet
    Dim rData As Range
    Dim rArea As Range
    Dim aData As Variant
    Dim i As Long, j As Long
    Dim hUnq As Object

    'Prompt to select range.  Uniques will be extracted from the range selected.
    'Can select a non-contiguous range by holding CTRL
    On Error Resume Next
    Set rData = Application.InputBox("Select range of names where unique names will be extracted:", "Data Selection", Selection.Address, Type:=8)
    On Error GoTo 0
    If rData Is Nothing Then Exit Sub   'Pressed cancel

    Set hUnq = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
    For Each rArea In rData.Areas
        If rArea.Cells.Count = 1 Then
            ReDim aData(1 To 1, 1 To 1)
            aData(1, 1) = rArea.Value
        Else
            aData = rArea.Value
        End If

        For i = 1 To UBound(aData, 1)
            For j = 1 To UBound(aData, 2)
                If Not hUnq.Exists(aData(i, j)) And Len(Trim(aData(i, j))) > 0 Then hUnq(Trim(aData(i, j))) = Trim(aData(i, j))
            Next j
        Next i
    Next rArea

    Set wb = rData.Parent.Parent    'First parent is the range's worksheet, second parent is the worksheet's workbook
    Set wsDest = wb.Sheets.Add(After:=wb.Sheets(wb.Sheets.Count))
    wsDest.Range("A1").Resize(hUnq.Count).Value = Application.Transpose(hUnq.Items)

End Sub
