Using a specialized array formula to identify data that's been duplicated: Excel 2016: Managing and Analyzing Data

To identify list records that have been duplicated, first sort the list by a column that has duplicates. In a nearby empty column fill it with an array formula that compares each cell in one row with each cell in the same column in the next row.
