I have an excel sheet with 2000 rows and 3 columns. I am looking for a solution for “deleting entire row if cell 1 and cell 2 of every row are equal. In other words,
Cell1 Cell2 Cell3 ID1 id1 val1 -delete ID4 id1 val1 -retain ID2 id2 val1 -delete ID2 id1 val1 -retain
I saw a lot of answer in VBA, but I am looking for an excel solution.Thanks.

I’m not sure what do you exactly mean by “excel solution”, but you can add 4th column with formula:
Fill the entire column with it.
Add autofilter, select
TRUE in 4th column and delete all rows.
Alternatively (if you do not want the extra column), you can use conditional formatting with the same formula, set background of the cells to some unused color, and then again use autofilter to find cells with this background color.
