Delete duplicate records

View(s): 12684

A table has a single column and has duplicate values. How to delete all the duplicate values?

Answer 1)

Here i'm listing two best solutions.

1) Using SQL Server 2005 CTE (Common Table Expression)  

/* Delete Duplicate records */
WITH CTE (Col1,RowNum)
AS
(
SELECT Col1,
ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY Col1 ORDER BY Col1) AS RowNum
FROM DuplicateRcordTable
)

DELETE
FROM
CTE
WHERE RowNum > 1

GO



2) Using ROWCOUNT and Correlated Subqueries

/* DELETE DUPLICATES ONE BY ONE LEAVING SINGLE ROW */
SET ROWCOUNT 1
SELECT 1
WHILE @@ROWCOUNT > 0
DELETE DuplicateRcordTable A1
WHERE 1 < (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM DuplicateRcordTable A2 WHERE A1.COL1 = A2.COL1)
SET ROWCOUNT 0
