I have a table of "Output" values that I am referencing from another "Input" table using a match/offset formula. Within the input table, there may be some duplicate values.

For example, the inputs could be the numbers 1-100. Each number is a row which has multiple columns of information. If I were to add another row numbered "50" with the exact same column information as the existing row "50" then we would obviously then have a duplicate. In my output table, I don't want to just ignore the extra row of information, I want it to be sequential, starting with row 1, going to row 100. In contrast to starting with row 1, going to row 50, having a blank row, then going from row 52 to 101 for a total of 101 rows. I cannot seem to find an efficient way for the "Output" table to recognize the duplicate rows in the "Input" table and ignore those, and reference the next row's information instead.

In the end, I'd like to theoretically have the "Input" table capable of having 99 rows exactly the same, and 1 row different with the "Output" table displaying only the two unique rows in Row 1 and Row 2 respectively, of the "Output" table.

Well I solved it myself, can't insert file though, too big, even zipped. I basically added a Filter table which would test the values in a row against the rest of the table's rows and if there was match (duplicate) it would spit out a 0 and if there wasn't (unique) it would spit out 1. Then I Created a unique row number next to each row of the output data and match/offset that to the Filter Table's unique number generator.
