Power Query or Get & Transform (In Excel 2016) lets you perform a series of steps to transform your Excel data.  One of the steps it allows you to take is to keep duplicate records.

We usually remove duplicate lines but if we need to keep and check what the duplicates are, Excel allows us to do that too!

Let’s suppose you have this set of data. You can see that the marked ones are duplicate values, let us keep them!
