Dears,
I have original data in Table1 and want to do multilevel sorting and filtering to remove repeated data and finally get unique data as in Table2. Please some one help me how to get Table2 data from Table1.
My sincere thanks in advance, Mekala

[~, ~, D] = xlsread('Multilevel_sorting.xlsx');
A = D(3:end,1:2); % your data in table 1
G = {'Group1','Group2','Group3','Group4','Group5'};
for k = 1:numel(G)
B{k} = A(strcmp(A(:,2),G(k)));
B{k} = [G(k); unique(B{k})]; % remove G(k) if you don't need the Group headers
end
B is your table 2. To see the elements in B, just type B{1} for Group1, B{2} for Group2 and so on.

Sir,
I do not want to define the groups (assuming it is unknown). I Want write code to filter by uniqueness, and then I want store under each unique cell in column2 in table1, how many unique cells are present in column1.
Sincerely, Mekala
