I know that if one applies the Union command to a list of values, it
will return the list with duplicates removed. Can I use the Union
command to eliminate duplicate when I have a list of data "records"?
Specifically, I have a large data set that I read into a list on a
row-oriented basis. Each element of the list consists of another list
of about 30 different fields. Two of these fields are geographic
indicators. If two or more records have identical values in these two
fields, then the full records are considered duplicates and need to be
identified and removed from the larger list (or at least marked for
removal). Can Union do this?
