    Simple, this is just the complement of what I already posted.  Simply change the Filter Examples condition to count>1 rather than =1 and you will get ONLY the duplicates.  I thought you did NOT want the duplicates.

    Hi @neginz,

     

    Can you share your dataset and your process ?

    Can you too explain with an example what you get now and what you want obtain  ?

     

    Regards,

    If I understand you correctly, you want to eliminate any records that have duplicates.  Here's a simple technique I have used to do this in the past.  First, use Aggregate to group by name (or whatever constitutes the unique key that defines a duplicate, and note this can be more than one field) and count of name, which will give you a count of how many times each name appears.  Filter Examples for that set for any record that has a count greater than one, and then Join (using Inner Join) back to the original dataset.  Presto---you should then have only the records that appeared once!

    hi @lionelderkrikor

    my data are customer's comment and I want to extract rows with authors comment more than one time. in the process, I create for example when we have 2 rows with the same author the result show only one of them .(when the absolute count in pic =2 )I think its because of the operation "remove duplicate" it removes only duplicates value, not all of the value that has duplicates actually one of them remains and not remove.

    If you post a small data sample, it would be easier to help you.

    Basically you want to take the output you are showing, but filter it for those records that only have a count of 1.

    Then you will use that to join back to the original full dataset that has all the duplicates, but the inner join will only keep the records that have a count of one.

    tnx sorry @Telcontar120

    its small sample of my data. I want my result have the "comment id" attr.

    sorry for my English

    Here is a process that does what you describe in your original post.  It removes posts from authors that have more than one comment (e.g., it removes all items included in duplicate sets by author).  You should be able to adapt this to your needs very easily.  The first operator will need to have the path to your data file modified of course.
