In numbers, how would I merge the two rows below into one row without having duplicate data.  I just want one row with three columns that reads:


Steve | 12345 | open



NameID #


I'm very new to Numbers and spreadsheet software in general.

    Hi s,


    What data would be in the third column of the 'merged' row? How will Numbers know which to choose? Assuming that you've presented a simplified example of what the actual data will look like, what other possibilities exist besides a row 'missing' data in one or more columns? How are these possibilities to be handled?


    Rather than having us play 'dentist on a chicken farm,' it would be more productive to start with a (more complete statement of the problem. What are the details?

    you can filter results using the "Reorganize" panel.  To open the reorganie panel you can select the table, then select the menu item "Table > Show Reorganize Panel".  The use the middle section "Show rows that match the follow:"
