Conditional Formatting - Duplicate values

It would be beneficial if, similar to Excel, end users had the ability to see duplicate values (conditional formatting) within a selected dataset.

    Thank you for your answer. I'm glad to hear that it already exists. Is it possible to highlight duplicate values within the same element? For example, could we highlight all repeating numbers in the Sales column of your example? I understand that this example may not make much sense, but we have an administrative requirement where users should be warned if they enter duplicate values.

    This functionality already exists. The Workspace cube viewer has a formatting feature that allows the book author to compare the values of two cells and highlight when values are the same, or different (greater than, less than, equal, etc). For example, I'm setting the cell background as green when the values in Other revenue match Sales.

    Note that this feature was moved to the new Format Manager in PAW 2.0.94.
