Validating Data To Be Unique In A Range

Problem:

Validiating the values entered in column A, so that a value could not be entered more than once.

Solution:

Select column A–>Data–>Validation–>choose Custom–>Enter this formula:
=COUNTIF($A:$A,$A1)<=1
Thus, when trying to enter “”1″” in cell A10, an error message will pop out,
and will prevent the user from entering any of the values already stored in column A.
