    Delete duplicates from a StringList Collection

    geir.olsen

      I have a Stringlist Collection that I have populated with every attribute value for all the components in the design in the format:

       

      objAttrStringList.Append(".ATT_COM " & RefDesVal & " " & chr(34) & objAttribute.Name & chr(34) & " " & chr(34) & objAttribute.Value & chr(34))

       

      a typical string looks like this:

       

      .ATT_COM R334 "PKG_TYPE" "0402"

       

      However I have duplicates in the stringlist collection.

       

      Do anyone have any suggestions for sorting and removing duplicates.

       

      Keep in mind that for a large design, it could potential be a lot of strings. In the one I'm working on right now there are about 25000....

       

      Best Regards
