SQL & the count(*) thingy...  it's been too long and I don't use SQL that
often.  Hopefully this will spur a few answers from the group.

You can do it using WRKQRY with two queries.  One that sorts by the duplicate
data you're looking at and summarizes it with the COUNT option and outputs to
an outfile.  The second reads the outfile and selects any counts greater than
1.

Does anybody know of (or have source for) a handy little utility to find
 duplicate records in a file?

TIA,
Nick
