I have over 2500 so I can't remember them all as I look at them. I am running .7.4
I had the same problem when I combined two libraries.. the same idea as sort by title, I did it in Excel after saving a cataloger, sorting by title and to start just put in a formula to compare the name above, for me it took care of all dupl (I use trim in the formula to take care of leading and following spaces)
